Federic, You might be right about top ten players.
Laver and Rosewall were surely the best claycourters 1970 to 1972.
Re 1971: Laver won the Italian Open with a clear win against Kodes. Rosewall won the top tournament of Washington with wins against Laver, Smith and Riessen. Both were awesome also in 1970 and 1972.
