But the point is if these players had a bit of luck fall their way - like for example the luck that the likes of gaudio, johansson or kafelnikov got, they too would have won slams - that includes all of mecir, nalbandian, rios and murray IMO ...
Agreed for Gaudio and Johansson but not for Kalashnikov...Evgeni was a nightmare for many top players and he won 2 not just 1 GS title ( that proves it is no fluke)
