Whereas other records, like surface streaks (which Nadal holds the record for at 81 consecutive wins on clay), are much more important. They're about WINNING.
I think a guy like Wayne Ferreira or Fabrice Santoro is more remembered than many players that were better than them at winning, like Cedric Pioline or Mecir, or whatever. Of course if you win many slams like Federer or Sampras or even Emerson (see what I did there?) you are MORE remembered, but it's not like this means zero for a guy like Ferreira.
