I agree with MACN. In her two GS wins and one final Evonne beat Shaw, Durr, Hunt, Richey, King and Court, she beat Wade in the sf of the South African Open, defeated Wade and Durr in the Nottingham round robin tournament and Wade in the sf of the Canadian Open. In Fed Cup 1971 (played 26/29 dec 1970, she beat Wade and Durr as well. I can find 13 defeats (Court:5, Stove, Orth, Hogan, Durr: 2 Heldman: 2 and Wade).
King had 12 losses (Durr:4, Melville, Niessen-Masthoff, Goolagong, Court, Jones, Casals, Nell Truman and Evert), so was far from invincible. Her US Open title was hardly as tough as Goolagong's triumphs in London and Paris - the only seeded player she met was Casals in the final.
