No criterion trumps every other consideration. Connors and Lendl have both other accomplishment that put them ahead (and by a good margin to me) of Agassi.But his career slams is an impressive feat in itself which deserve to be recognized.

Should we not mention Connors and Lendl consistency (especially at the USO) because it doesn't trump other players impressive accomplishments?
