What is significant, also, on this list is that these players could produce their peak level when it was most needed, in Davis Cup (the premiere event in the sport of tennis) or Wimbledon or Forest Hills or Kooyong. (unless, of course, if they were out of shape or injured). Perhaps Kovacs did not do this.
