While it is the most prestigious tournament but its prestige is not compared
and measured
by a simply stupid mathematic scale of 7543.

while it is the most prestigious tournament that has nothing to do
with player greatness. it has to do with how well the tournament is
promoted, marketed, hyped and presented as well as its history.

but the tennis is the same as any other slam with a 128 player draw
consisting of the same players, the same equipment and the same
balls.

so, it is wrong in terms of deciding who is the goat to award more
points for it simply because it is prestigious. if anything it should
get less because it is played on the most obsolete least played on
surface of them all.

It may have more to do with Sampras winning seven Wimbledon than
anything else. Had Sampras won seven French, the same Sampras troll
would be arguing for 3547 :)

Yes, because nobody has ever heard the suggestion Wimbledon is top slam
- I'm the only one endorsing the idea.

Obviously the official FO site has a good sense of humor suggesting
Wimbledon is the top slam.

You guys are pretty sharp in this ng.

While FO site suggest Wimbledon is the top slam but it does not do anything

7543 is not bullshit.

It's obvious to most that it is an attempt to amplify the significance
of Wimbledon at the expense of the other majors.

It's flame bait.

players, experts & fans.

It is an arbitrary ranking system for majors. I can't remember which
numbers are supposed to relate to each major but the purpose is to
magnify the importance of Wimbledon so it gets 7 points and everything
else gets less.

You only read about it in rst. It was never true but it is absolute
bullshit now that there is only one big event played on grass. It
speaks more to the mystique and history behind Wimbledon but it has
damn all to do with real tennis played in the real world.

You can say that about any sporting competition, from soccer World Cup
to Olympics. The best football may have been played in someone's
backyard. The fastest runner may have been some Kenyan running away
from a lion at 7.6 secs over 100m etc.

yeah or any other non-real world scenario. Don't forget apparently some
unknown Asian tournament is possibly more prestigious than Wimbledon, lol.

It is one of many theories which should tell the respective values of
four tennis slams currently played (wimb-us-fo-aus).

IMHO it was spot on for slams played 1983-1987 but before that they
were valued even more uneven and after that valued more and more close
each other as years have passed by (maybe now 6554 or smt similar).
