Books are useless! I only ever read one book, "To Kill A Mockingbird" and it gave me absolutely no insight on how to kill mockingbirds! Sure it taught me not to judge a man by the color of his skin, but what good does that do me?

  1. ^ a b c d Generally, Cochet's 1922 French Open win is disregarded as a Grand Slam because the prior to 1925 it was not open to non-French citizens.[1][2][3][4] However, it is occasionally counted towards the total which would bring his total numbers of French and Grand Slam wins to 5 and 8 respectively.[5]

Future information that might be nice and relevant if better sourcing can be found.

  • The relevance of Major professional tennis tournaments before the Open Era.
  • In 1927 Vinnie Richards became the first prominent male star to turn pro.
  • The Australian Slam was not considered a top-tier tournament before the mid-1980s. It had smaller draws, and the best players in the world routinely skipped it in order to focus on Davis Cup and the Masters (both of which were far more prestigious at the time) or just to take some time off: Connors, Borg, and McEnroe all passed on it in their primes.[1]
  • Until the Melbourne Park-era, in 1988, the Open-era tennis was widely regarded as having three major Slams.[6] ("Hardcourt Confidential: Tales from 25 Years in the Pro Tennis Trenches" might be useful
