The OP is referring to the "true" GS in 1969, not 1962 since it was a weak amateur field. 1962 doesn't deserve to be included in the poll since many streaks/records are more impressive.
Roger is number one - 17 slams; 302 weeks #1, 6 WTF; 5 years end #1; 24 slam finals;4 slam finals back-to-back year; Player of the decade
