I don't think I can give Jimmy the 1977 no.1 ranking judging by results, even though he topped the computer.
Hey that's OK
I do try to be fair, but someone has to stick up for Connors. The computer did have him at one, so he was officially the no.1 player in 77, but not the "best player" that year, which was Borg I think (although Vilas was brilliant that year). However I do genuinely think in 78 Jimmy was actually the best player.
