Rankings were first computed in 1973, so no Fred Perry or Rene Lacoste here. Sorry.

The #1 ranked player can often change. Indeed, during the 1980s, the #1 position kept switching between Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg, to name a few. For simplicity, I have named each player only once, in order of chronology when they first reached #1.
