Those who play best through a stretch of time are the best at what they do. You can have a match of your life and perform like crap the next day. Ultimately it looks like you've accomplished little.
Yes, I completely agree with you, that's why Connors is my favourite ever player, and I think the 3rd best of all-time!

Connors had the combination of great peak level play and maintained that for almost 20 years.

If you are going to look at peak level play only, i would seriously pick Rosol. For that one match at Wimbledon on that day last year, he was better than anybody ever. Amazing to watch, he went for winners on almost every shot and they kept going in time and time again. Although I bet he never plays to anywhere near this peak again.
