No, it is not ridiculous to put Wills, Lenglen and Seles together. I was listing several of the greatest players ever who don't have a career slam and those are the three foremost. I was making the point it is not THE defining factor of greatness, it's not that difficult to understand and every one else in this thread seems to have understood that point except for you in your blinding and pathetic insecurity.

The fact that AO wasn't recognised before 1925 actually DETRACTS from the importance of the career slam. You do realise that point you made was self-defeating. The concept of a perfect slam quartet doesn't got to the root of tennis history in the same way as say, for example, being a Wimbledon champion does. This is something that you have just drawn out of my post. I wasn't making that explicit point, you did.

total BS, before 1925 there were no Grand Slam tournaments, only Wimbledon stood out as a major event .... Why should we degrade importance of "Grand Slam" , "Non -calendar Grand Slam" Career Grand Slam" just because a century ago when tennis was just forming as a global sport something was different?
Tennis hasn't been played at Slams on hardcourts by 1978 , so what? should we degrade USO and AO for being held on not natural surfaces?

no, cakewalk is when you have no possibility to meat decent players , because
1) there are no decent players in you quarter/half of the draw
2) there are decent players in your quarter/half, but they got injured


If they lost in early rounds (not because of injury)- it means that their opponents were better in these matches and it doesn't downgrade toughness of draw
