Default Peak Play GOATS

Okay. Here is the place to post your peak-play GOATs list.

As the title implies, this is about the individual's level of play on their very best day at the peak of their career. To put it in modern vernacular, when this person was "in the zone" for one whole match and everything was going this person's way. Everything clicked.

Cumulative achievements do not matter; longevity does not count; years at no. 1 are not relevant.

1. Hoad
2. Gonzales
3. Laver
4. Federer
5. Vines
6. Kovacs
7. Sampras
8. Tilden
9. Borg
10. Budge

(I have not thought in these terms before, but here's my "first-thoughts" list.)
