Laver won the Wimbledon Pro in 1967, anyway.[/QUOTE

The Tournament of Champions and Wimbledon 1967 were surely big events but should we include them as pro majors? Then-where is the limit? Should not we include also L.A. Masters, Madison Square Garden, PSW, Masters (1970 and later) and WCT finals? I would say a NO to all of them.
What Pro majors had official status? As I said before, the current 4 have been official in the open era and amateur era since 1924-1925.
