Small but firm edge for muscles as the Number one player that yr
kiki, I'm glad that you rank Rosewall No. 1 for 1970 but I must say that Laver won many rather important events. Thus I give him a tied No.1.
I also rank Newcombe Co.-No.1 because he won the most important tournament and reached SF of Forest Hills.
