Using your criterions, Brugera is a better player than Murray (2 slams, 2 master 1000, 1 one silver medal when it meant little. Well, two slams is better than one), Verkerk is better than Henman, Davydenko, Haas, Ferrer, etc. (he did reach a slam final).

I regard consistency higher than wisp.
I was - until Murray won USO I agreed on several occasions on here that Delpo had achieved more than him. I would say that as of today that Brugera has achieved more than Murray.
