You bring up an excellent point about Fred Perry. The media doesn't even recognize the achievements of the old Pro Tour and the majors they had. Perry was arguably the best player in 1941 and as you wrote, he did win some Pro Majors.
Perry was never the top pro. In 1941, he was lucky to win at Forest Hills over an injured Budge, recovering from a broken nose, and unable to take risks by diving around the court.
A cheesy win.
