The TIMELINE is showing the chronological order when the greats started their tennis careers.

Observations

In some years 1885-1886-1943-1944 no players made their debut.

Some Years stand out as exceptional – notably 1927 which saw Perry, Crawford and Wood set out on their quest for glory – 1960 saw Newcombe, Ashe and Smith get started and 1988 gave birth to Sampras, Courier and Ivanisevic – last but not least in 1998 Federer, Hewitt and Safin began their tennis journey.  Conversely in 1965 the top 3 players setting out were Erik Van Dillen, Jim Osborne and John Cooper.

Graham, nice compilation.
But what do you consider a "debut"?
Is it a main draw of ATP (main tour) tournament?
Safin, for instance made his first appearance in such draw in 1997 rather than 1998.
Do challengers count?
