I think that he skipped RG after 1969 to better prepare for Wimbledon, a strategy which did not quite work. Better to have played at RG.
As far as Tingay, wasn't he the guy who ranked Hoad at #5 for 1953? I would have put Hoad at #1 for that year. I guess Tingay and I use different criteria.
Dan, Rosewall would not have beaten Borg in a Paris final in 1974.

Yes, you would have put Hoad at No.1 for 1953. I guess you even would have ranked Hoad at No.1 also for 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1960.

Did I forget 1961, 1962 and 1963??

Yes, I finally agree: Tingay and you have actually used different criteria........
