This appears to be a rather arbitrary rating of what constitutes a major event, especially in the old pro era. For example, why is the 1967 Wimbledon Pro considered a major, but not the Forest Hills Pro of 1957 to 1959? These two events were the most media-covered events in the tennis world at the time (the Forest Hills Pro was given feature-article status in TIME magazine and Sports Illustrated, unlike the fake US Pro in Cleveland).
Any ideas? It seems that no one is able or interested in defending the status of the fake US Pro in Cleveland from 1952 to 1961.

Good list but....
 
That's a good list but you have listed the US and Australian pre-1924 and French pre-1925 - when they weren't majors.

Three of our current 4 majors (to use the modern term 'Grand Slams' (a term I don't like)) have only been majors since 1924/1925 (French from 1925).

Majors from 1913 to 1923 were the World Hardcourt Championship, World Covered Court Championship, Wimbledon according to the ILTF which was the official organizing body of tennis. Now no matter what one thinks of the World Covered Court Championship it still was the official indoor World Championship ie Major. (Wimbledon still gets recognized as a major in 1972 and 1973 when the fields were weak - because it still was officially a major, similarly the fields at the Australian Open from 1972 to 1982 - still a major).

The French certainly shouldn't be listed pre-1925 as it was only open to French tennis club members.

The ILTF (for-runner to the ITF) officially recognised our current 4 majors from 1924 onwards (French from 1925)

The main point - is that like golf, what was a major has changed over time. When Bobby Jones did his Grand Slam in golf - they weren't the same majors as we have now. Similarly in tennis they have changed.

THe only ambiguous thing was the US Championships pre-1924. They weren't officially a major but people treated them unofficially as such.

Agree about Forest Hills Pro (actually the tournament of champions - from 1956 - when it was in LA). Should be listed as a major. Time Magazine certainly rated it as an important event in 1959 - commenting on Hoad's win over Gonzales.

Having said that I applaud the effort as to often people simply judge pre-1968 tennis by the current 4 'Grand Slam' events (hate that term!).

1968 Australian Championship
 
"1968 Australian Championships: William Bowrey"

that can't be rated as a top event. It was still amateur.

This doesn't make sense. Every Australian Championships before the open era was amateur only.

I have made changes to the OP. I've omitted the French pre-1925, the Australasian pre-1924 and the US in 1881 (only open to US club players that year), and have included the World Hardcourt Championships, the World Covered Court Championships and the Forest Hills Pro of 1956-1959. I have continued to count the US Championships from 1882 onwards.

So the majors are:

Open majors
Australian Open (1969-January 1977, December 1977-1985, 1987-Present Day)
French Open (1968-Present Day)
Wimbledon (1968-Present Day)
US Open (1968-Present Day)

Pro majors
World Pro (1932-1933)
French Pro (1930-1939, 1956, 1958-1967)
Wembley Pro (1934-1939, 1949-1953, 1956-1967)
US Pro (1927-1943, 1945-1967)
Tournament of Champions (1956-1959)
Wimbledon Pro (1967)

Amateur majors
Australian Championships (1927-1940, 1946-1968 )
French Championships (1925-1939, 1946-1967)
Wimbledon (1877-1914, 1919-1939, 1946-1967)
US Championships (1882-1967)
World Hard Court Championships (1912-1914, 1920-1923)
World Covered Court Championships (1913, 1919-1923)
Australasian Championships (1924-1926)

As much i respect those trys to give a deeper insight into tennis history, there are methodical problems. One problem with those lists is, that one has to prove every event in each year separately, which constitutes an important event. On the old pro tour there was no stable circuit of events, it changed from year to year. Even in the early years of open tennis, one has to prove the official majors, which often lacked the best players, and compare them with other leading events, which had better fields. Together with Carlo and others, we tried to establish four most important events for each year, according to the strengths of the draws. Sgt. John made a good list of the 4 most important events each year in an earlier thread here on TT, even trying to include surface diversion. Not only the pro Forest Hills round robin (in 1959 final) of 1957-1959 is to be reckoned with on the pro tour, but also - for some years - such events like the US pro indoor, played at New York, the Madison Square Garden pro, or the Forest Hills round robin.

All I know is that according the the above, Rosewall and Laver were awfully piggish and greedy in the 60's and early 70's. the type of folks that would take all the ribs at the company BBQ. Not very polite at all.

Specially Rosewall.Heīd eat all the meat and make you pay for it...thatīs why he was called a mean man...

Minor point
 
I like the list.

Just a minor point. You might want to change the name from Forest Hills Pro to Tournament of Champions - because the 1956 edition wasn't at Forest Hills.

Wonder where the Madison Square Gardens Pro of the mid-60's fits in?

The "strength of the draws" does not give you a good determination because even lesser pro events before and after1968 could have an impressive field. But who would call Oklahoma City or Johannesburg majors (despite their big-sounding titles)? These minor events might have a strong field, but someone like Gimeno or Stolle was likely to win them.
I would suggest that the old pro events at Wimbledon (1967 only), Forest Hills (including the pre-1952 and 1963 US Pro, plus the 1941 Forest Hills), Roland Garros (1956, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1968), Kooyong (1958, 1959, 1960, 1962) should be given major status ahead of the indoor tournaments (which were heavily smoked). These were the locations of the four recognized amateur and open majors (although the Aussie Open moved around, Kooyong was the foremost tennis location).

Just done this :)

Dan Lobb 04-04-2012 05:33 PM

I notice that Butch Bucholz is listed as the US Pro champ for 1962, although the tournament he won was actually called the World Professional Championships at Cleveland, while the official US Pro was held at Washington, D.C. and was won by Tut Bartzen (surely, one of the all-time great players) who defeated the ubiquitous Sammy Giammalva in the final.
This was the first official US Pro since the 1951 event at Forest Hills, where Segura defeated Gonzales in the final.
It seems that the Cleveland promoter knew that his time was up in 1962 when he conceded the inevitable and changed the name of his event.

I wouldn't make too much of the title "Tournament of Champions", which Jack Kramer cooked up as a sales gimmick, and which he applied rather loosely to a number of his events. For example, in December, 1959 the Sydney tournament was billed "Tournament of Champions", just as the Forest Hills Pro had been a few months earlier. Were there two Tournament of Champions in the same season?
The pros used titles freely, and they should not be taken too seriously. The Cleveland US Pro was actually not the official event, but was simply a marketing ploy.
The real basis of a major is the location and the stadium, the quality of which determined the status of the tournament.

Whatīs wrong with Gimeno and Stolle?:confused:

MG1 04-04-2012 11:41 PM

Mustard..

Can you make the list for the maximum no. of major event winners.(as per above data)

I posted one list earlier on another thread in which Rosewell having 26 & Laver 22

In that list all amatuer+Pro+Open majors and some other events like 1967 wimbledon Pro were included.

Nothing wrong with them, but I think you will agree that their victories came in the less prestigious tournaments (although Stolle luckily won the 1966 Forest Hills final after Newcombe sprained his ankle after winning the first set).
Gimeno got lucky at the French Open in 1972, an event boycotted by the main pros.

Gimeno beat Laver and Rosewall at the Worlds Pros.Stolle won Roland Garros by beating Tony Roche.
