No and no. Australian Open had just six matches for a long time, 1982 was the first year with seven rounds, plus a lot of the non-Aussie top players were missing until the late 80s. Also, it was Bo3 in early rounds not only in AO but in a couple of the others as well. In AO it was Bo3 in R1 (R64 then) until 1975.

US Open had Bo3 in R1 and R2 in 1978. And Bo3 even in R3 in 1977 and earlier.

RG had Bo3 in R1 and R2 until 1976.
