Default How rare is it to win multiple slams in the same year(Open ERA)?

How rare is it to win multiple slams in the same year(Open ERA)?

(Looks like I have some free time today).

NOTE: If your favorite player isn't here then wait a year and check back for the update.

If you think your player deserves to be considered an all-time great check out below what it takes( a calender year GS winner would do it).

I wanted to display the stats we all know in a different format, sometimes it makes things clearer (sometimes not).

Laver is included in all of these since he won them all in '69.

AO-RG done 3 times The hardest double to win.
Laver( 69 ), Wilander( 88 ), Courier(92).

AO-WB done 7 times
Laver(69), Conners(74), Sampras(94,97), Federer(04,06,07)

AO-UO done 7 times
Laver(69), Newcombe(73), Conners(74), Wilander(88 ), Federer(04,06,07)

RG-WB done 6 times
Laver(69), Borg(78,79,80), Nadal(08 ), Federer(09)

RG-UO done 6 times
Laver(69), Vilas(77), Lendl(86,87), Wilander(88 ), Agassi(99)

WB-UO done 12 times Piece of cake double.
Laver(69), Conners(74,82), McEnroe(81,84), Becker(89), Sampras(93,95), Fed(04,05,06,07)

Any double with the AO as one of them 17 times
Any double with the RG as one of them 15 times
Any double with the WB as one of them 24 times
Any double with the UO as one of them 25 times

The French is the hardest to win in any double slam of the year by a large margin Probably due to the different style of play on clay and the skills needed there.


and 3 slams in one year.

AO-RG-WB done 1 time
Laver(69)

AO-RG-UO done 2 times
Laver (69), Wilander(88 )

AO-WB-UO done 5 times
Laver(69), Conners(74), Federer(04,06,07)

RG-WB-UO done 1 time
Laver (69)

Any triple with the AO as one of them 9 times
Any triple with the RG as one of them 4 times
Any triple with the WB as one of them 7 times
Any triple with the UO as one of them 8 times




In my response to my first list where example Laver won 4 slams in a year he was in ALL lists causing some confusion, myself included.



This list is ONLY winning the combinations listed, for example if a player won 3 GS in a year he will be listed in the 3 GS combination list and not duplicated in the 2 GS combination list.
This changes the outlook quite a bit with the numbers.

For 2 slams ONLY in one year.

AO-RG done 1 time
Courier(92)

AO-WB done 1 time
Sampras(94,97)

AO-UO done 1 time
Newcombe(73)

RG-WB done 5 times
Borg(78,79,80), Nadal(08 ), Federer(09)

RG-UO done 4 times
Vilas(77), Lendl(86,87), Agassi(99)

WB-UO done 7 times Piece of cake double.
Conners(82), McEnroe(81,84), Becker(89), Sampras(93,95), Fed(05)

Any double with the AO as one of them 3 times
Any double with the RG as one of them 10 times
Any double with the WB as one of them 13 times
Any double with the UO as one of them 12 times

And 3 slams only in one year.

AO-RG-WB done 0 time
No one

AO-RG-UO done 1 times
Wilander(88 )

AO-WB-UO done 4 times
Conners(74), Federer(04,06,07)

RG-WB-UO done 0 time
No one

Any triple with the AO as one of them 5 times
Any triple with the RG as one of them 1 times
Any triple with the WB as one of them 4 times
Any triple with the UO as one of them 0 times

4 slams in one year done 1 time.
Laver won the calender GS in (69)
