***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"

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.

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.

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

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....

Default 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'.

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.
