I can't believe some people are voting Korda, who could always be a dangerous player and was in very good form in late 1997-early 1998.
1 major, the 2002 Australian Open.
Johansson does have more titles and a MS trophy to his credit. Still, Gaudio finished in the top ten two years in a row while Johansson never finished a season with a rank above 14. His record of 29-24 in his 2002 campaign is just atrocious.
