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
