To keep track of the slams considered fully edited in:

1922-1990, 1995, 2013-2015 Australian

1966 French

1941 and 1951 US Nationals

Over the next month or so I am trying to complete the Australian results. I am trying to keep current with 2015 so will add results as they come from Roland Garros.

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.

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.

This is an effort at:

A. Finally editing in all the slams with the fullest results possible.
B. Having a workable index.

Apologies if this isn't the right place to post - and happy to delete. Just found a typo in 1988 Australian Open singles results. It has Navratilova beating E. Minter in both the 1st and 2nd rounds. Martina's 2nd round win was over Anna-Maria Fernandez.

No apology needed at all Louloubelle. It is the perfect place to post.

I have fixed the typo and thank you for a keen eye. :)
