***Miami got the term "5th Slam" by it`s tourney promoters~~ ie.`self proclaimed "5th Slam"

>>It`s the same deal with golf, the Players Championships, coincidentally also in Miami, is the `self proclaimed "5th Major"

Re: Tiriac wants Madrid to be 5th slam

Tiriac is a despicable man who is determined to drag this once great sport further into the mire.
He basically pulls Mr Disney's strings.

Re: Tiriac wants Madrid to be 5th slam

Thankfully this crackpot idea of Tiriac's will never come to fruition. He seems to be seeking new ways to continually outdo himself in the ridiculousness stakes.

...not sure where you`re trying to go with this, but I`ll take it this is your attempt @ sarcastic humour

##anyway, like i said, both Miami AMS & the Players Championships are the `self proclaimed` "5th Slam" & "5th Major" respectively

~~it`s not surprising they [Miami organisers] would blow their own trumpet, the problem lies with naive johny come latelies, who believe the crap the incompetant media comes out with

The scary thing is that money talks.........let's hope that idiot Mr. Disney doesn't jump on this train. And before anyone considers it a crazy notion to assume Mr. Disney would give this any thought, consider his standards thus far: Round Robin, Restructuring the tournaments point system....

Re: Tiriac wants Madrid to be 5th slam

Lets say that the ATP and WTA is agree with a 5th grand slam.. IT WONT BE IN MADRID! Why?

europe 2 grand slams
north america 1 grand slam
oceania 1 grand slam..

then why not Johannesbourg (SOUTH AFRICA) or RIO DE JANEIRO (BRAZIL) Maybe TOKYO (JAPAN)..other continents deserve the spot more than Europe... since they already have 2

It was more than that. It was because it was co-ed, I think it was the first tournament that got permission to use a larger draw, and at one point they had a mixed doubles draw if I remember correctly. I think someone once said it was like a 'mini-slam' and the tournament ran with that and started saying '5th slam'.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Tiriac wants Madrid to be 5th slam

This Miami 5th Slam-nonsense... please, that was back in the 80ies, is long over and was never near the reality.
the 5th major tournament is the Masters. The 6th is Olympics.

btw, Tiriac is right with a lot of things.
