Winning 3 Different Slams at Least Twice
 
Anyone else find this achievement interesting. At first, it doesn't seem like it would be that difficult, but then you notice that in the open era, only four players have achieved this: Federer who has won three different grand slams at least 4 times, and Sampras, Lendl, and ......Edberg.

Edberg is GOAT candidate just based on his net play alone.

Only Federer still playing out of that select list and yet another reminder (as if we needed one) of just how ridiculously far ahead of the current tour he is in terms of Slam titles won and especially multiple Slam titles won: 7 Wimbledons, 5 USOs, 4 AOs.

Nadal, of course, is the next nearest to achieving this with multiple Slam wins in 2 of them: 7 FOs and 2 Wimbledons. He would have already done it if only he had held onto his lead in the final of this year's AO. As it is, he just needs 1 more AO or 1 more USO.

Djokovic, with 3 AO wins, needs 1 more Wimbledon and 1 more USO.

Unsurprisingly, they are the only 2 players who have the potential to join Federer and the others on this list anytime soon.

Why not look for winning all four champonships twice? Looks definitely better. Graf did it four times at least.
