The Grand Slam has always 'mattered'. It's just some fans and a few players who disdain the concept. For many years, for example, clay courters refused to contest Wimbledon because they didn't think they had a prayer on grass. And the Australian championships have always been an easy mark for players who did NOT want to go the distance or play in January. Prize money never defined the Grand Slam. It was always about winning the four championships of the great tennis playing nations. Australia, France, Britain and America. Nobody became a greater player by NOT contesting any of them.
