Tennis players who have win all four Grand Slam

Good morning readers! Today from Slazenger Heritage we want to talk about tennis players who have win the four Grand Slam podiums.

Along tennis history, one of the main objectives and motivation engine for the best players in the world has been winning all the four tournaments.

Grand Slam tournaments

Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open. So far, in the list of those who have succeed, at least once in each of the Big 4, we can mention eight men and ten women.

The first reaching all four titles

We start with the pre-Open Era. Here we find two of the greatest pioneers of this sport: Fred Perry and Don Budge. In those times, it was complicated traveling to the four events. In addition, Second World War damaged the career of several tennis players. However, the British and the American, respectively, inscribed their names in the history of the Big Four.

Roy Emerson and Rod Laver also won. Laver not only won all four titles, but did so in the same season and twice, once in 1962 and the second one in the Open Era (1969).

About women, Doris Hart, Mauren Connolly and Shirley Fry, reached the victory in the first stage of women’s tennis. They were succeeded by the dual of Margaret Court – Billie Jean-King and, later, Chris Evert – Martina Navratilova.

Two names stand out: André Agassi and Steffi Graf. André triumphed in Melbourne, Paris, London and New York. Steffi achieved the only Golden Slam in the history of this sport: she won all four Grand Slam titles and Olympic gold in the same season. She was relieved by Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. 

In men’s tennis, Big 3 arrived with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, who have made what seemed impossible looking easy.
