We all know there was no ATP in 1962 and before, and thus no ATP computer rankings. Back then rankings were compiled by mere human beings with favorites, biases, prejudices, and subjectively poor memories. We now have a better system.

Do you have a point that we do not know?
The weak never apologize, because they perceive it as a sign of weakness. The strong easily apologize because it is a sign of their strength.
