Here we go, again. The "US Pro" was not an official title during the "Cleveland years", and apparently the promoter, Jack March, acknowledged this by changing its title in 1961 (not 1962) to the World Professional Championships. I guess the title of "US Pro" wasn't big enough or grand enough for Mr. March. In 1959, the USPLTA granted recognition to Jack Kramer's Forest Hills Pro as the official US Pro, although Kramer cancelled the event for 1960, due to Gonzales' absence. It was at about this time that Jack March vacated the "US Pro" designation from his Cleveland tournament. In short, Cleveland was a minor tournament, not a major one. In the 1958 Cleveland final, Hoad was leading two sets to none when he pulled a thigh muscle, and was limping through the rest of the match. Hoad is usually ranked #2 for 1958 because he was the leading money-winner for the year, and defeated Gonzales at the three most important tournaments of the year, Forest Hills, Roland Garros, and Kooyong.
