NB I am interpreting 'never got beyond' to mean 'never got a higher ranking'....but now I wonder if you meant 'never got a lower ranking'...if you did, sorry 'bout that.
Yes, I probably said it the wrong way.English is not my first language and I may use the wrong words combination.I meant that Ivan never got worse than nš 3 in 1983.I forgot he even ranked nš 1 for some weeks.Although the lack of a major win probably cost him the general consensus of being the best player.
