Playing style Wilding[edit]

Tony played the classic game that was in vogue. His drives were the strength of his attack and his defense was outstanding. He could hit with immense pace and over-spin, but when prudence and judgement dictated security of stroke rather than speed, as against a player of Williams' daring, Wilding could temper his drives and play faultlessly from the baseline. (Collins, p.661)

- Comparison style Brookes - American twist service - Physical fitness - Improved backhand

"even Wilding's resolute and unruffled front were not proof against him, although, when he strengthened his smashing and backhand a year or two later, the ugly fence was usually carried." (20 years of tennis, p.19, A Wallis Meyers)

"reliable ground-stroke players" (Ibid. p161)

"Wilding's best stroke is hi cross-court drive which has a fabulous speed and flatness of trajectory. The backhand stroke is his weakness; if by any means possible, he tries to avoid it. His smashes are, in view of his tallness and muscles, almost childlike, his volley stops, however, are brilliant,...Of the 'reverse twist service' of his countrymen and the Americans he scarcely has an inkling, his experiments with it lookes dangerous, but proved completely harmless. His varied and daring game won him sympathy of many; personally, he proved to be the 'jolly good fellow' which he reputedly is'. (Otto Nirrnheim, translation Gildemeister, p408)

"Mr. Wilding's game, somehow, has always remained incomplete. It has greatly developed in some directions, and his vigour and condition have helped to cover a multitude of sins. But his inferior back-hand and weakness overhead remain as a handicap, while when hard pressed in a close match, he has several times showed that he cannot command that last requisite of a really good player – temperament."(Times, November 1908) http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast?a=d&d=AS19081114.2.75.2

"What is the strongest feature of Anthony Wilding's game? The fact is that he is so well balanced as to be without one. He is equally strong at every point. He is undoubtedly just now at his zenith and has a fine physique to aid him." (McLoughlin interview, July 1914) http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast?a=d&d=AS19140730.2.26

"He first used the Australian unchanged grip for both forehand and backhand, but later changed to the English backhand." (Lowe's 1935, p.252)

Playing style Tilden[edit]

In spite of his powerful serve, Tilden preferred to play mostly from the backcourt, where he dazzled opponents with his ever-changing tactics: a mixture of guile, of chopped and sliced shots, of drop shots and lobs, and of sudden powerful ground strokes deep to the corners. He hit superbly angled shots on nearly impossible returns and liked nothing better than to face an opponent who threw powerful serves and groundstrokes at him and rushed the net—one way or another Tilden would find a way to hit the ball past him.

Tall, lean, and gangly, with long arms, enormous hands, and exceptionally broad shoulders, Tilden possessed what was called at the time a "cannonball" service. In 1931 his serve was timed at 163.3 mph (263 km/h),[citation needed] although the figure has been questioned, given the technology available at the time, and also because hitting a serve that hard with the wooden rackets of the era would have been exceedingly difficult. (By way of comparison, Ivo Karlovic holds the modern, unassailable record, measured by radar, of 156 mph (251 km/h)—a record set with a much more powerful racquet.) Although he could serve aces almost at will, he had little interest in advancing to the net behind his serve. He primarily used spin and slice serves, reserving his famous cannonball for crucial moments in the match.


Playing style Rosewall[edit]

Rosewall had everything except a big serve. Norman Brookes: "Roswall had the best backhand of all time". A quick-moving, instinctive player, Ken had great skill in handling the rising ball, rapid reflexes, the ability to switch direction in mid-stroke. He met the fiercest strokes with nonchalance, could volley smashes impudently from near the baseline.[3]

List of ATP number 1 ranked singles players[edit]

The ATP Rankings are the Association of Tennis Professionals' (ATP) merit-based method for determining the rankings in men's tennis. The top-ranked player is the player who, over the previous 52 weeks, has garnered the most ATP ranking points. Points are awarded based on how far a player advances in tournaments and the category of those tournaments. The ATP has used a computerized system for determining the rankings since 23 August 1973.[1] An updated rankings list is released at the beginning of each week.

History[edit]

Since the introduction of the ATP rankings the method used to calculate a player's ranking points has changed several times. As of 2011, the rankings are calculated by totaling the points a player wins in his best eighteen tournaments, subject to certain restrictions. For top players the counting tournaments are the four Grand Slam tournaments, the eight mandatory ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments, the player's best four eligible ATP World Tour 500 series tournaments (the non-mandatory ATP Masters 1000 event in Monte Carlo may be substituted for one of these), and his best two results from ATP World Tour 250 series. Lower-ranked players who are not eligible for some or all of the top tournaments may include additional ATP 500 and ATP 250 events, and also ATP Challenger Series, and Futures Series tournaments. The ranking points of players who qualify for the year-end ATP World Tour Finals also include any points gained at that tournament, increasing their counting tournament total to nineteen.[2]

Current ranking method[edit]

Since 1973, 25 men have been ranked number 1 by the ATP.[3][4] Roger Federer holds the records for the most total weeks at number 1 (302) and most consecutive weeks at number 1 (237).[5] Pete Sampras holds the record for the most year-end number 1 (six, all consecutive).[6][7] Two players, Ivan Lendl and Marcelo Ríos, have reached number 1 without previously having won a Grand Slam tournament.[8] Lendl reached number 1 on February 21, 1983, but did not win his first Grand Slam title until the 1984 French Open.[9] Rios reached number 1 on March 30, 1998 and is the only number 1 player who never won a Grand Slam singles title.[10][11] Patrick Rafter spent the fewest weeks at number 1 (one week). Lleyton Hewitt is both the youngest world number 1 (20 years, 268 days) and youngest year-end number 1,[12][13] while Ivan Lendl is the oldest year-end number 1 (29 years, 299 days). Andre Agassi is the oldest number 1 (33 years, 131 days).[14][15][16]

Since 1973 when the ATP ranking started, there have been eleven years when one player held the top spot for the entire year. In contrast, 1999 had the most number 1 players of any year since the rankings started. There were five players who were number 1 sometime during that year - Sampras, Moya, Kafelnikov, Agassi and Rafter.
