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

Very cool thread.

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

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

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

This one has some chances of being broken, but it will take a long time I think
