Hi everybody!

Fist of all, I have checked this forum daily since 2005/06 and finally have decided to create an account after 1,5 decade.. :)

I wanted to know what are in your opinion the Top 7 most prestigious records in tennis, by category?

For me, it would be:

1/ Number of Grand Slams (20-20!)
2/ Weeks at number 1 * (Sampras 286 weeks were a very well know record and impressed a lot at the time)
3/ Number of Single Olympic Gold (for me today's most prestigious tournament behind the slams)
4/ Number of ATP Finals
5/ Number of tournaments (Connors record of 109 is still iconic)
6/ Winning all 4 GS (at least until the 2010's - was really a big big deal when Agassi did it in 1999 - however who really cares Bord didn't win Australian Open for exemple?..)
7/ Number of Grand Slam finals (not sure about that!) - number of Masters 1000 isn't what makes you a legend imo.

* I do not count here the number of years as year end #1, as it's pretty much the same thing as "weeks at #1", just a little less prestigious imo.

1. Grand slams titles
2. Weeks at no.1
3. Most consecutive GS titles won
4. YEN.1
5. Olympic gold medals
6. WTF titles
7. Masters titles

Some records are incredible but I won't rate them this high(like federers mind blowing 237 consecutive weeks at no.1, djokovic double career golden masters...)

At least that what comes to my mind right now, 4-6 are pretty much tied.
