Before computer rankings, it was impossible to know how many weeks a tennis player held the World No. 1 status. The only given were the Year-End rankings, but the number of tournaments was simply not the same in the The Golden Age of Tennis inside the Pro Era. Even the 70s rankings are a little stretched as to the number of consecutive weeks with a No.1 position. The computer rankings were run only a few times a year, unlike today.
