I am sure if there was the point system of today, Evonne would have been ranked #1. Unfortunately for Evonne, King had more pull than she did with the tennis establishment. Isn't that the year King supposedly had an abortion in order to continue playing, and Margreat had her first child? I seriously doubt King ever got pregnant.The rankings were based on opinions rather than fact before 1973. If we were to use today's ranking system for 1971 who would be the true #1. I think Evonne won 11 tournaments including the French and Wimbeldon. She made the finals of the Australian Open and didn't play the U.S. Open. King won 19 tournaments including the U.S.Open and a semi berth at wimbledon. She didn't play the Australian and French opens. Let's add up the numbers and put this debate to bed!
