All time greats based on competition in GS finals

Perhaps all ATG's should be rated on who they faced in grand slam finals. The measure will generally be who won the most grand slams. So perhaps one should look at the level of opposition they faced to actually measure their strength.

Also, not sure if we should only look at the open era to make things simpler.

(I'm assuming the big 3 will gain more from the above measuring stick due to having faced each other so much).

In Grand Slams (example):

Sampras:
Faced Agassi x times
Faced Courier x times
Faced Becker x times
Faced (weak opposition name here) x times
Rating:

Federer:
Faced Nadal x times
Faced Djokovic x times
Faced Hewitt x times
Faced (weak opposition name here) x times
Rating:

Perhaps someone has a better approach to this? Can by any ATG's.

That looks like Djoker will edge Nadal with another title.

Right. I think winning this Wimbledon would probably yield the lowest adjusted slam value of Djokovic's career, but it won't be lower than the 0.45 adjusted slam gap currently separating them. I'd guess it'd be around 0.7 if he beats Hurkacz, 0.75 if he beats Berrettini. But the fact that Anderson's Elo rating is misleadingly high and Garin is a top-20 player might inflate the number a bit, I'm not sure.

Seeing how the 2017 USO was worth 0.89 Slams according to their calculation, I don't see how Djokovic wouldn't surpass Nadal's total if he wins this Wimbledon, being only 0.45 adjusted Slams behind

Did Graf or Serena have the toughest finals?

Did Federer or Sampras or Nadal or Djokovic have the toughest finals?
(Yes, age can be considered for Federer).

We can take this further and ask who had less rounds to their finals.
