Hewitt and Mc Millan
Fleming and Mc Enroe
Borotra and Lacoste
Brugnon and Cochet
Jarryd and Edberg (peak play since Anders had a longer career with Fitzie)

kiki, Hoad/Rosewall keep still the record of most major titles won (15).

I don't rank the Woodies very high because they had rather weak competition. In older times all top players played doubles too, but not in the times of Woodbridge/Woodforde or nowadays.
