Kramer? You mean the most emotional and subjective ranking ever concocted?
Kramer changed his mind many times.
In 2006, he ranked the best players chronologically as Vines, Budge, Gonzales, Hoad, Federer.
This last list makes some sense, although I would still accept Rosewall's ranking of the top four;
1) Hoad
2) Gonzales
3) Laver
4) Federer

The top 10 should be filled out with

5) Rosewall
6) Sedgman
7) Budge
9) Sampras
10) Borg
