Now I'm gonna blow all your minds.
ATP made a huge one in 1973 (although logical if you think about it). Get ready. Look at the Top 10 of August 23, 1973 for assistance.
1. It is when I collected in all the data from tournament types that I realized this mishap. To get Orantes in front of Smith, placing Madrid at 75K was simply not enough. It helped, but Orantes was still short a few decimals. Panatta was entering Top 10 at last. So, this is when I realized that the weak September GP events from 1972 were not counted (Seattle, Sacramento and Albany). Take them out and Orantes slides in front of Smith. Not only that, but it also helps Rosewall move in Top 10, as well as other key positions in the Top 10 are determined.
2. Although, the Top 10 was looking close to the real one, I had to place all WCT events at the end of 1972 to 50K to make it even closer. But there was one thing missing.
3. Kodes... Kodes... Kodes... However you put this, Kodes was #4 (official being 11). It was so wrong, something was definitely amiss here. But how? One logical solution triumphed over all. 1973 Wimbledon (which Kodes won) was boycotted by 13 out of the Top 16 players because of the Pilic incident. Not only that this explained Kodes' position, which became 11 after I took out Wimbledon, but it was also explaining Connors' tournament count of 17. :gleam:
ATP DID NOT COUNT WIMBLEDON 1973. At all... :rofl_2:
Although, now I'm gonna have to count Calgary, as the only logical tournament Nastase played and Connors didn't to make it 23 for Ilie once more.
