Poll: How many extra slams is the calander year grand slam worth, on average?

Well take a player for this case study, who hasnt done a tremendous amount of damage at grand slams..say Ernest Gulbis or Gail Monfills.

Say they won a calander year grand slam in 2011. But no more slams in their career for whatever reason. So they retire with 4 slams.

Are they above career wise, an 8 slamer who never won a cygs or a career gs?

Say a player wins 2 calander year grand slams back to back, is he better than a player with 12 grand slams do you think?

Multiples of 4. Say Monfils won 3 calander year grand slams and finished with 12 slams. Would he be above Federer if he finished with say 18 slams, or even his 16?

Discuss.

Would you call a player the GOAT if he dominated and won 4 slams without dropping a set for a calander year gs, but never won another?

If a player won 2 CYGS, would he be above Ivan Lendl?

Bear in mind this means only 8 grand slam final appearances, Ivan had over 20. Does that count for anything?

We have already established that CY/Career slams are worth more than 4 standard slams because people elevate them above people with more gross ammount of slam titles.

To win all slams in a year is just being lucky. Good draws, not sick or injured. Peaking at the right times.
The stars have to be aligned.
If Nadal missed the FO a few years ago when Fed won three slams it doesn't mean Fed was somehow better that year.

The true question is: how many brains are lost when reading a 2003 thread?

Just bitter Nadal fans who know Federer was closer 3 times than Rafa ever will be to the CYGS

Federer was never close to the CYGS if you look at each year chronologically.

lol, what he said was true, chronologically he has never won both the first 2 slams in the same year, so he wasn't really that close. It's not like he won AO, FO, Wimby, and loss the US Open final in a 5th set TB. If he had said he wasn't ever close well that'd be wrong as he won has won 3 in the same year before.

BTW, why is there not any options for 7-9 in the poll? I kind of think it's worth more than 6 but less than 10 lol, but I just picked 10

This is essential to be a GOAT, IMO.
