True. But I believe that by the end of 1964, Laver was superior in ability and achievements--just barely.

I believe that he earned his place as World no. 1 for 1964.


1960—Rosewall
1961—Rosewall
1962—Rosewall
1963—Rosewall(4)
1964—Laver
1965—Laver
1966—Laver
1967—Laver
1968—Laver
1969—Laver
1970—Laver(7)
