Navratilova/Shriver and the #1 ranking

During the years that Navratilova/Shriver were the top ranked doubles team, how many weeks did Navratilova and Shriver individually have as the #1 doubles player? I know Navratilova held the top spot longer than Shriver did, but does anyone have the exact numbers?

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)

Further to that, if anyone has a list of weeks at #1 in doubles, I'd be interested to see it. It easy to find it for singles, but I dont think I've ever seen the doubles list...
