Think this thread should be more like "What Happened to Wilander after 1988." Such a shame he couldnt continue his 87/88 form into the 1990s. If he had, he could have easily beat Roy Emerson's record at the time of 12 majors

No way could wilander of beat emerson's dodgy record. Lendl had on off year in 88 which in my opinion contributed to wilander's three slams that year, lendl 89-90 would have beat wilander 88.
