A comment or two from Lawn Tennis and Badminton, a British publication. "The value of such lists has often been doubted in some quarters, and there can be no denying that they raise controversy." ...."suggestions have been made from time to time that the International Tennis Federation should issue an official "World" list."

Hughes points out some difficulties in a women's list. Hilde Sperling did not an entire set all year outside of Wimbledon-her lone loss being to Helen Jacobs at the Championships-yet she ranks no higher than 4th on Myer's list. He asks. "is it fair in drawing up a world classification to attacj too much weight to the Wimbledon and American results."

Hughes proposed solution is two lists: one for grass and one for hard [clay] courts.
