In 1913, the ILTF created its first tennis Majors, three world championship events that were abolished by 1923. In the history of those early Majors, only one player won all three in the same year, Anthony Wilding, arguably the first world champion. In 1927, the men's game was separated, leading to the creation of the Pro Slam Majors.
The tournament was designated a major championship by the International Lawn Tennis Federation in 1923. Nowadays, its draws host 256 singles players, 128 doubles teams and 32 mixed doubles teams, with the total prize money for the 2021 tournament being A$71,500,000. French Open
