    On the front page of atptennis.com it says "attempting to become the sixth man in history to win all four grand slam titles..." I was under the impression that there had only been 2 others that had a career grand slam in history, one of which was Laver. So are they talking about singles and doubles combined? because there are 3 men (1 mens doubles team, and 1 mixed doubles team) that have done it also.

    They arent talking about a calendar slam.They talking about having won all 4 GSs in their career.

    They mean a career grand slam. Three men have achieved this (without actually winning them all in one year). They are Fred Perry, Roy Emerson, and Andre Agassi. The other two are the ones who achieved the calendar grand slam and that would be Don Budge and Rod Laver. This are the five men who have won all four majors.
