Yes I read that in the other thread, and like I said you can't judge a tournament just on who the champion beats you have to look at the whole draw!

In my opinion and it looks like this Sgt.John chap, the AO was at a real low in late 70's and even though it improved fast in the early 80's, it still took a few years for everyone in the tennis world to consider it a full equal major with Wimbledon, French and US Open!

And arguably it's still now seen as the lesser of the 3 in many peoples eyes, unfairly certainly!
