How can you count his Bristol Cups as Majors? They had very weak fields...

I agree that Cochet was weaker as a pro as an ametur till 1933. But he was still rather strong in the 1930s and even after the war (when he won tournaments against strong players).
I disagree, my impression is that after he turned Pro he was strong just on occasion. He was 32 when he turned Pro and he had not Tilden's longevity.
