    4 slams in a year vs 1 a year for 4 years
    3 slams a year for 2 years in a row vs 1 slam a year for 6 years
    2 slams a year for 3 consecutive years vs 1 a year for 6 years

    What do you guys think?

    Personally, I would take the former is all 3 of the above scenarios.

    Both are important but I guess dominance is more so.

    I'd take 1 slam for 4 years provided they were the full set, otherwise 4 in one year.But 4 in one year suggests you might be in great form for one year only and you might find your main rivals are injured or out of form, especially given the closeness of RG/Wimbledon and even the US Open. It's about 3 and a half months.

    2 slams a year for 3 years I'd take over 1 for 6 years especially if that one slam were the same slam, 2 slams a year means winning 2 different slams at least, and also 3 years of multi slam winning is impressive. I think I feel he same about winning 3 slams a year twice.

    Longevity + results trumps dominance + lesser results.

    And I say this as a Borg and Federer fan.
