A marked SUPERIORITY, which the established pro majors, for a number of reasons, could not hope to emulate.
Then, does it make any sense whatsoever NOT to include these super-tournaments among the pro majors? Obviously, the amswer must be "NO"!
Wembley and French pro were on the same level with Forest Hills and Wimbledon 1967. They had 16 great players in several years.
