With 14 grand slam victories, Pete Sampras leads Roy Emerson by 2, Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver by 3. Below are the number for all those with 8 or more victories. A complete list is here.
My opinion is that Sampras will hold this record for at least 30 years. Reasons
– He’s got a significant lead over all others.
– There are too many good players today. On this list, only Borg, Lendl, Becker and Conners are reasonably
– Pete might even win another major or two.
– It took Pete 13 years to win his 14 majors. No doubt, some young player will come along who dominates the game, but it will still take him quite a few years to win 15 majors.
