View Full Version : Has this ever been done?

I'm pretty sure no one has done this yet, but out of the few career slam winners there have ever been, has one of them won a different slam for each of their first four slams? That would be pretty incredible to not repeat win a slam until a player got to 5 slams...
US Open- 1994
Aussie Open- 1995
French Open- 1999
He then went on to win one more US Open title and three more Aussie Open titles.

I don't think so. Can anyone list the carrear slam winners, then we'll see.
WAIT, Agassi did it I think. Wimbledon 1992, US 1994, Aussie 1995, and French 99. Then he won US 1999, Aussie for 2000-2003, giving him his 8. Short search there. Anyone else done it?

Damn, I thought agassi had won more than one us open or aussie before he won roland garros, my bad. Thanks JRW, you are clearly on top of your info.

On a simliar note: Has any player won the same slam more than three times before he/she won another slam?
Becker did it at Wimbledon (85,86,89) before he won USO in 89. Kuerten har won RG three times, and no other slams so far. So he can make it four French without winning elsewhere.
