I guess these guys greatest season definition has more to do with percentage of matches won than winning all the majors in the same season ?
I don't know what his match record or winning percentage was, but, in 1967, Laver won 19 titles including the Pro Slam against a field that was the equivalent of playing only the seeded players in a major championship for the entire year.
I think that may be the greatest season ever.
