Combined Panel Ranking

On November 29 the New York Times published a panel ranking-with 10 points for first, 9 for second-to 1 point for #10. The Times informs us this was the first panel ranking of its type.

The panelists were Lance Tingay of the London Telegraph; CM Jones of Britih Lawn Tennis and Squash; Rene Mathieu of Smash magazine, Philippe Chatrier of Tennis de France; Umberto Mezzanote of Tennis Italiano; Arthur Goldman of Anson Press in South Africa, Allison Danzig of the New York Times, and Jack Russell of Tennis Australia.

With 8 named panelists and 6 lists (evident from Connolly's point total) only 6 of 8 contributed lists for women.

Their combined rankings came up with the following:

01. Maureen Connolly-------60 points
02. Doris Hart--------------54 points
03. Louise Brough----------47 points
04. Margaret dy Pont------ 36 points
05. Shirley Fry-------------34 points
06. Betty Rosenquest Pratt-27 points
06. Beverly Baker Fleitz-----27 points
08. Helen Fletcher----------15 points
09. Angela Mortimer--------11 points
10. Joy Mottram-----------06 points
