C'mon! 2 Grand Slams, a 103-7 record, and 56-match winning streak that lasted 10 years? The race for #1 has often been very close, but the #1 is the #1, and Chris can't not have been with results like that.
To illustrate, Chris was #1 in 1981 but it was up to the last month of the year, 1982 Martina became #1, but it was decided in the last tournament of the year (Toyota championships final), and 1985 Martina became #1 in the last month but they said if Chris had won that day (at the 85 Aussie), she would be back to #1 on the computer. So close is close, and happens all the time, thank god for competition's sake. But as Billie jean has re-written a lot of tennis history, she must've hand-scrawled those rankings for 1974 in the locker room.
Well done with the VW quote, by the way, Alfa! That was very subtle...
