Circumstances (farewell of three players who’d made their biggest achievements in 2003) caused my decision to summarize that year in 2012. Since 2013, I’ll be intertwining three different decades (80s, 90s and 00s). I’ve estimated that in current pace of work in two years time, the website will have contained 124 archival Grand Slam tournaments  (all of years 1980-2010). Because of that I need to modify a bit the structure of the drop-down menu to avoid a situation that all archival majors aren’t immediately accessible on our screens, thus four different majors will be gathered on one page. Point your cursor on menu’s ‘2-Roland Garros’ and check ‘1982 – 1983’ to imagine how everything will look like in the future.
