Tennis Rankings

By Patrick Mondout

Year-ending rankings for tennis players started in 1914 with a survey released by The London Telegraph. This list of rankings only included amateur players until 1968. The rankings were taken over by the respective women's and men's tours in 1973 and then both began using computerized systems in 1974.

Here are the highest ranked players at the end of each year of the Super70s.
