GRAND SLAM. In tennis, the term Grand Slam refers to the accomplishment of winning all four major championships-the championships of Australia, France, Britain (Wimbledon), and the United States-in the same calendar season. The feat has been achieved six times (by five different players).
The Grand Slam tournaments are the annual four major tennis events played in the Open era, which began in 1968, superseding the Amateur Era. The Australian and U.S. tournaments were officially recognized by the ILTF in 1924, and the French Championships followed a year later in 1925 when it became open to all international players.
Golden Slam Winners. Just as a quick refresher, a Golden Slam winner is someone who has achieved a Grand Slam as well as won an Olympic Gold medal. Only one tennis player, Steffi Graf, has been able to achieve a Calendar Golden Slam. She did this in 1988, winning all 4 of the Majors as well as the Seoul Olympics – absolutely incredible.
