thank you very much for the info! as i said, if it's the case that Vilas had the most points, he must be listed as #1 no need to be so tensed up! i just wanted to explain, why i think some do not rank Vilas as #1 for that year. thnak you very very much for all the other info! and i want to apologize for noting that your favourite player lost a match here and there besides that i just wanted to point out that the Lendl/Becker case was different (in the process), but the result was the same: Lendl had more points and was the rightful #1.
