    Well for me personally

    1. Sampras- Given
    2. Agassi- Also a given
    3. Edberg- Edberg won one less major than courier, but he won the 2 big ones, Wimby and the US Open, plus I think his level in the 90's was slightly higher during his slam winning time.
    4. Courier- 4 slams, but the 2 Australians sort of equal 1 of Couriers as the fields even then were usually the weakest of the slams.
    5. Rafter- pretty much even with Becker, but the US Open is worth a bit more
    6. Becker- only won 2 Australians, but he was generally playing well during his time in the 90's anyway.
    7. Bruguera
    8. Chang
    9. Kafelnikov
    10. Muster (sort of tough to choose number 10...gave it to Muster for his 8 masters titles...although you could probably argue Moya, kuerten or Stich as well)

    6. Becker
    7. Muster
    8. Chang
    9. Bruguera- only played well on one surface
    10. Kafelnikov- more luck than greatness. Wish I could put Ivanisevic or Krajicek instead who were both really better players
