(1) In some of the early years, less than 500 players were ranked at all (see the Avail. column)
and in some of those early years, year-end rankings are no longer available, so the nearest
available week to the year end has been used instead.
(2) Neil Broad switched from RSA to GBR during the second half of 1988.
(3) Greg Rusedski was higher-ranked than any of the GB players in
earlier years, but was playing for Canada at that stage.
