Tennis’ Career Grand Slam Winners, All-Time Men
If we consider just the Open Era – when professionals were invited to play all four tennis majors for the first time in 1968 (Australian Open in 1969) – then only four men have won a career Grand Slam (at least one of every major).
They are Rod Laver, Andre Agassi, and the still active Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Quite an elite group. Nearly 50 years of Open Era tennis and only four players have won all four majors: Australian, French, Wimbledon and U.S.
If you go back to the very beginnings of all four “tournaments,” another three players make the Grand Slam cut. Check out the all-timers below.Follow @VinGetz
