Okay the reason the AO for 1970 is depreciated, is because it is compared to the sydney dunlop open about a month later. This had most of the top players from the AO but also it had players who weren't allowed to play the AO like rod laver. Hence much deeper field. Some termed the sydney event at the time, I believe, as the 'real AO'
