It is very much a pseudo-argument, assuming a pseudo-argument is one that doesn't have a leg to stand on.

Your analogies are poor. Unlike Wimbledon, none of these stages were devalued by a pro/amateur split, in which certain players were banned from participating.

So either you are engaging in bad argumentation on purpose or out of ignorance.
