Interesting. I think it was easier being Tod Martin then than now. It was much more common to see upsets back then, particularly on grass or clay, when top players ran into specialists. There was also a pretty good balance of slow and lightning fast indoor courts so ranking could be very deceiving. I think Agassi was really the first all surface threat. Everyone else had a weak surface where they could get bounced early. Alot of the top 20 seemed to just surfaces altogether since there were enough of their events to keep their rankings up.
