I agree that the modern GS tournaments rank above the pro majors but the latter are still to consider very high as they had many all-time greats as participants.

A player (Laver) who is able to beat Rosewall, Gonzalez and, say, Anderson in an eight man major is also likely to win a modern GS tournament with 128 participants.

Laver and Rosewall have proved in open era that they are able to win open majors as they won 9 GS tournaments out of the first 13 open era majors where they participated, even when being oldies!
