I agree that discipline and training is basic, but so was in Laverīs time when the top players were clearly fit ( or at least the majority of them).Guys like Emerson and Kodes were great natural athletes, as a few others.
Yes, but a Grand Slam is about winning 4 slam titles. The pro major only has 3 tournaments(French Pro, Wembley and US Pro) per year. Added to the fact that the draws consist between 8-14 players(slam has 128 players).
You like to hide negative facts.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
