You can't just look at who they beat to get to final, surely you have to look at the whole draw. And the discussion is about when is AO a full equal major?
And many people think late 80's. It was certainly growing from early 80's but it was at a real low in late 70's and took time to recover?
I'm not an expert but that's what I've read, I may be very wrong!
