Ive noticed that the 1987, 1988 & 1989 Lipton International Players Championships (Miami Masters) was best of 5 sets every round and a 128 draw. Also the ranking points for winning were very close to the amount you got for winning the Australian open in those years. The winners of the Miami tournament in those 3 years were Miloslav Mečíř in 1987, Mats Wilander in 1988, Ivan Lendl in 1989. Considering the Miami masters in those 3 years was basically the same format as a grand slam, do those 3 players deserve to consider and count winning in Miami the same as winning a major?? Which would move Lendl on to a total of 9 majors, Wilander 8 majors. Any thoughts??
