Cumulative achievements do not matter; longevity does not count; years at no. 1 are not relevant.
(I have not thought in these terms before, but here's my "first-thoughts" list.)
I would put Sampras above Fed in this list. I would put Mac (esp. of 1984 vintage) too, maybe in place of Borg. I cannot comment on most of the other players since I've never seen them play, except for brief video clips.
