What tournament is the 7th slam? Davis Cup or one of the Masters 1000's?

Now that we have basically established Olympics Gold and TMC as the 5th and 6th slams, regardless of order, the question now turns to identifying the 7th slam.

Is it Davis Cup? Or one of the Masters 1000 events?

Every 1000 tournament > Davis Cup

Bullshit it's irrelevant.

Roddick says winning in 07 with Blake and the Bryans meant as much as his USO in 2003. Or Safin and the Russians in 06? I recall Marat saying it was "better than sex". Ask Verdasco what winning in 2008 in Argentina meant. Ask Djokovic how much that 2010 Davis Cup win meant to him. You think he'll exchange it for Cincinnati?

Unlike fans of the mighty Troicki, right? Regardless, no "man" can ever win it, because it's a TEAM event.

Look, Fedfans, just cause Federer has never won Davis Cup doesn't mean its irrelevant and unimportant. I guarantee your tune would change if Roger had a Davis Cup title. "Oh, Davis Cup has so much history, so important, like Basel or Dubai"

It's not stupid. It is a response to the 5th slam thread. If you have five, why stop there? Why not seven, or seventeen? Myself, I am happy with four.

Are you all stupid or what? Calling me a fanboy and then saying Federer has never won it . SWITZERLAND HAS NEVER WON IT. This is one of the dumbest threads on MTF.

So, again, Davis Cup is irrelevant.

Football, that is a team competition, 11 guys, plus more on the bench.

Davis Cup? 4 guys at the most. In the old days, it was 2 guys playing all 5 rubbers. For a country like Swiss or Serbia or British, it is a 1 man show basically.

Remember last September? "60% Djokovic is better than 100% Troicki"

We're talking about it's importance as an achievement numbnuts

It's irrelevant whether it's a team tournament or not
