Re: Grand slam results

Does anyone else think the Australian Open should have only begun being recognized as an official major in say 1981? Perhaps had a 4th different major event for men and women until then.

Not really-because the idea of a 4th major didn't come out of nowhere. Up until the early 1930s there was only the "Big Three"-with Wimbledon way head of the other two.

It was Australia's luck to be one of the first 4 nations to win the Davis Cup-and thus "the Grand Slam" idea was born in 1933, when Jack Crawford came oh so close to it.

Without the start we would never have the 4 more or less "equal' majors we have today.

Re: Grand slam results

Fair enough. It just seems strange for so long in history an event being called a slam or major with weaker fields than many of the regular tour events.

Re: Grand slam results

This is an effort at:

A. Finally editing in all the slams with the fullest results possible.
