Masters Series-level tournaments in the 1890s, 1900s , 1910s.

12-02-2013 07:32:43
Considering that at the time there were only 2 Grand Slam tournaments (Wimbledon and US Open), what other major tournaments had that could be considered for Masters-level in that time?

They could be these: Irish, British covered court, South of France, Homburg, Monte-Carlo, Cannes (Beau Site), Longwood, Victorian Championship, Championship of Europe?

During the 1900s Hamburg was less important than Homburg?

During the 1900s Long Island had category Masters 1000-level or not?

During the 1880s and 1890s Queen's Club and Northern had Masters 1000-level or not?

Regards to all.

The Championship of Europe could have been like the World Hard Court Championship of the time or only as a Masters-level?.

Can the Australian Open at the beginning considered a Major?, Wilding and Brookes played it a few years...

I read in tennis-warehouse no doubt that Northern Lawn Tennis Association Tournament had a great level during 1888-1898, but someone knows what other tournaments may have had an outstanding level in the British Isles during that time?. Maybe Queen's Club Tournament, South of England Championships?. I'm sure there must have been more than one. I hope some answers. Thanks.

According to this site that has men's singles draw of the tournament in Cannes (Beau Site) are not very good between 1905 and 1910, he played Ritchie and Wilding or Ritchie and Decugis. I think not deserve Masters-level.

It's a little sad conclusion but although this site has lots of visitors, there is a big lack of feedback.
