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...

Andre Agassi

Wimbledon- 1992
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?

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.

Rafael Nadal - French Open 05, 06, 07, 08 - then Wimbledon 08
Kim Clijsters - US Open 05, 09, 10 - then Australian Open 11

Andre did it.

If we count WTA, then Sharapova did too.

Not incredible because it entails getting beaten a lot of times.
