If someone chose, say, individual records at any particular major - like 5 AOs or 8 FOs or 6 USOs - the supplementary achievements that go along with those records aren't very impressive - #1 ranking isn't guaranteed, other majors aren't guaranteed..
Yeah..3 cygs would be awesome. It would require some auxiliary records to cement yourr status as GOAT but the player would be remembered forever.
The weeks at no. 1 don't mean anything unless you win slams (look at wozniacki).
