But in the past, the aussies all played doubles and since they were also the best in singles that s why many great doubles players happened to be top singles too
Last team with big singles&doubles stars were Connors#Nastase and in a lower degree Gottfried-Ramurez, Jarryd-Edberg and Fleming- Mc Enroe
From late 80 it became a mere specialist business
kiki, Very well explained. I do hope that even younger persons will realize it.
