I know, but they still weren't majors. I don't know why some people can't see the difference between majors and big events, and that in those days, they weren't always the same thing per se. When they said "Lendl hasn't won the big ones", they were talking about the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open, particularly the latter three. Lendl first won the Masters in January 1982, and first won WCT Dallas in 1982. They were big events, but not majors.
