It doesn't have the weight of the slam but you're selling players like Lendl, Agassi, Federer, Nadal, Nole real short. Focus on both slams and MS to be able to win consistently is a real challenge. Too bad Sampras takes the easy route.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
