8. Budge
9. Gonzales
10. Connors-Agassi

Not a terrible list, but it does include a few oddities IMO, such as the high placement of Kramer and much lower placement of Gonzales.

I wonder how he derived such a high placement of Kramer given that he did not start "following tennis" until long after Kramer had retired as a player--maybe he read and researched just like the rest of us.? (According to Flink's website [] he started "following" tennis in 1965: "Steve Flink has been following the game since 1965, the year he first went to Wimbledon and the U.S. Championships.")
hoodjem, Connors and Agassi ahead of Rosewall does not honour Flink.
