I think we've all gotten caught up in the excitement of watching Federer at his peak, but there is a strong case for Sampras and Nadal being his equal, and Borg being better.
IIRC he reached the 3rd round at AO, so lets not assume he would have won them.

Even Roger's count is essentially 3 slams (only one win at RG), so he is still 15 slams if you count only 3 slams.

But whatever suits your fancy.
