About the masters in the '90s.
This event was in general definitely less important tha in the 80's and more important than now.
But it was actually very different between players. For some players it was also very very important, for other it was less. And remember that in the 90's we had a lot of great carpet players who could compete to win the masters but were not competitive for three slams. For them, it was a central event. For others, it was less.
