Ann Jones No.2 in 1969, before computer rankings.
Virginia Wade No.2 in Novemeber 1975, after the start of computer rankings.
Sue Barker peaked at No.4 for much of 1977 and Jo Durie peaked at no.5 in early 1984.

Jo Durie went up to No.35 in 1991. Sara Gomer had peaked at No.45 in 1988. Monique Javer peaked at 61 in 1991.
