It is important but has lost value to the 70s and 80s and even 90s. At one point it was considered more important than the Australian and maybe even the French which is obviously far from the case today as you concede "the French Open is obviously about five times as big as the WTF". In 1978 or even 1996 nobody would have said that, in 1996 it would be 2 times more important at most.
