players with great achievements just on one venue as usual have very weak W/L % , might have been considered as mugs outside their best surface.... It diminishes their achievements
players with CGS or at least 3 Slams on diff surfaces
and Kuerten with his just 64,7%..... it's less than Hewitt's , Rafter's, Kafelnikov's and other 2 Slam winners ratio. I rate Gustavo as a member of this group of player , not in the group of Ashe, Vilas , Courier
Molla Mallory won 8 US Opens (more than any other player) and was a runner up at the French and Wimbledon. So she was better than 5-0 at one slam only, albeit before the Open Era.
Anyway, for some reason I'd rather win 5. No real clear reason. Though like Mary Cherry I would yell "This is my house." Actually, I'd yell "This is my house, y'all" because I'm from Texas.
