This may fall quite easily I think, for example with a very good player aged 19 in 2009 it's beatable. Plus, we're not talking about the top spot in 3 decades, something that hasn't been done so far, I would transform it into

1. Top 3 ranked player in three different decades - A. Agassi

Re: Records that (most probably) will never fall

Very cool thread.

What was the record of the number of threads in GM for one match before merging?

Re: Records that (most probably) will never fall

Agassi's more impressive record is winning 5 slams beyond the age of 29. I doubt that will ever be broken.

Re: Records that (most probably) will never fall

Roger Federer has won three Grand Slams in each calendar three times. It may be unbreakable, too...
