No, the US Pro is not minor because of that. Because it was a minor event, not a major in any way.
Dan, I doubt that you will ever become a serious poster. Firstly you said that Kooyong would be the venue of an open major. Now, after I have disproved you (the venues of A. Champ.s have changed between 4 Aussie cities) you give us a new rabbit off your hat: Kooyong is acknowledged as the pre-eminent Australian venue for tennis. I doubt that this is undisputed. You just could say that NOW Melbourne is the main city of Australian tennis.
You are unique among the tennis experts (and I do say you are an expert) that the US Pro in the 1950s was a minor event...
