Winning those Masters shields will be a tough ask if the CYGS winner is in the draw plus all the other players who will be splitting the finite number of points available sans the majors. Just look at history and see how many players got to #1 just by winning one or two majors a season; winning three majors virtually guarantees the #1 ranking. The only "realistic" way that the CYGS player doesn't obtain the #1 ranking is if everyone else conspired to have the hypothetical runner up vulture all the points left and the CYGS winner sits out everything else.
I didn't say it was likely. But the premise of this discussion is one record only, so nothing else should be taken for granted. 12 majors, certainly, that is implied. Weeks as #1 are not. Though anyone winning all the slams would certainly be regarded as the best player that year even if someone else has more points.

So, we are talking about a reverse wozniacki situation here?
But you are right..we are talking only about a single record and it's direct implications.

Re: Most coveted record

Slam record at 87.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

* 2 or 3 ATP 250.
* 2 or 3 ATP 500.
* Davis Cup.

Again, huge.
Add to that, 3 consecutive calendar year GS with the 3rd year being the Olympic one.

Re: Most coveted record

I have to go with Slam total. Combinations of longevity and dominance can always be summarized by Slam total. A bonus would be if it included a career slam or even a CYGS. Winning slams with, say, 10 years apart is also nice.

I support Federer, Murray, Karlovic, Nishikori and some others.
11 < 1922 < 4175 < 6132
A weak era is an era that becomes stronger when you remove the strongest players.

Wow..that would be one of the worst records to choose.
I doubt even rafatards can be that dumb.
Maybe his clay record is what they'll choose.

Re: Most coveted record

Clay GOATness should be the one record that every player wants, it's the surface of surfaces. One surface that rules them all, it's where legends are made, where heroes arise, where Spartans are born. Bet Fed would trade in his 16 other slams for another RG crown, heck for a RG win against Rafa, maybe even for taking him to 5 once at the battlefield of the gods. vamos.
