No of weeks as world no.1, year-end no.1 and WTFs are the next things that count, I think.
That would work if you only wanted to name Federer as the greatestest of all time But that wouldn't really work for anyone else....because then you would have to also say according to your definition that Emerson was greater than Laver.
You would also have to say that Margaret court is better than Graf,Williams , Navratilova , evert.
Also you would have to say that laver Borg and Nadal are all equal.....and that Emerson was better than all three of them.
So I don't think your definition would really work. Do you?
