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.
I agree with you. That's why I have a great respect for Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, and even Murray and Ferrer. These last two are far from the top in term of peak play, but they are consistent enough and play very well given their limited abilities to reach the higher playing levelr.
