eh, only connors didn't play RG, his weakest slam ... he most probably wouldn't have won that given the field of borg, panatta,vilas, orantes, ramirez, solomon etc ...
take out RG for sampras , you have him at 9/16 (56.25%)
I'll easily take that over 5/12 for Connors in his best 5 years inspite of the fact that connors faced tougher competition ...
