Re: Professor Johnny Groove's Top 55 tennis players of all time (Djokovic up to #31)

Before Sampras's era, barely anyone cared about the grand slam title count. Then this whole 'only slams matter' and 'slam counting' mentality began to stick. That's why it is stupid just to look at grand slam titles won, when in the 80s and previously, the the non-slam tournaments were much more important and more lucrative (compared to the slams at the time in relative terms).
