Just because something is "widey regarded" as something, does not mean that everybody feels that way, nor does it mean that it's entirely true.
You'll notice that this is what the FO site... it did not say "Wimbledon is the biggest slam in the world, the most prestigious." It said that it was widely considered to be. There is a distinction here, that most readers of the English language should be able to make.
That said, I'm sure there are tons of guys who want to win Wimbledon the most. Overall, if you did a poll, I will assume that those guys would win out. It's just not the case for everybody. That is, and always has been my arguement on this one.
