So the question remains then, if great players records are counted as irrelevant after a few decades....should they put such huge efforts into establishing their records?
No, no don't get me wrong, I'm not saying JMac and Connors records are irrelevant. What I'm saying is they are not as good as Federer and Nadal, which therefore means they are easier to beat, which therefore means that it's easier to get these higher winning percentages.
However, if you want to hold JMac and Connors above Nadal and Federer as players that's up to you, it's your opinion but it is a ridiculous notion.
