What should be done to hold back players from winning Super Slam ?

Super Slam should have all 4 slams, Olympic gold and WTF in one year if I'm not mistaking.
If Novak somehow takes Super Slam this year, soon everyone will have a chance to accomplish such feat. :(

How to prevent players from not getting such ridiculous achievements ?

Increased drug testing should do the trick

I dont know the terminologies but shouldnt it be called Calendar Year Super Slam? :eek: And what about all 4 Slams, Olympic Gold, YEC and Davis Cup? Super Duper Slam?

I'm not sure I follow you there - how is one player's achievement relevant to the probability of someone else repeating it in future? Just because he's done it does not mean it will suddenly become a regular occurrence.

Why anything should be done?
If a player can do it - good for him. It is not very likely to happen anyways. Even if it did, it is not something that can easily be repeated. Just look at Laver and his Calendar Slam - it still stands, while it took 47 years for someone to do a non-Calendar.

It is really messed up, there are so many names for different accomplishments, but this one that I found is someohow most apropriate. :)
Have you ever herd about boxed set ? :confused:
"Winning the four majors in consecutive tournaments but not in the same year is known as a Non-Calendar Year Grand Slam, while winning all four majors at any point during the course of a career is known as a Career Grand Slam. Winning the gold medal at the Summer Olympic Games in addition to the four majors in a one calendar year is known as a "Golden Grand Slam" or more commonly the "Golden Slam". Also, winning the Year-End Championship (known as ATP World Tour Finals for men's singles and doubles disciplines, and WTA Tour Championships for both women's disciplines) in the same period is known as a "Super Slam". Together, all four Majors in all three disciplines (singles, doubles, and mixed doubles) are called a "boxed set" of Grand Slam titles."

As I've heard, don't take me on this seriously, in this topic http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/inde...nd-slam-a-future-normal.565509/#post-10384604 it was discussed how CGS will become something normal. So I thought why stopping there ? :rolleyes:

I've explained above my thoughts about that. But, just imagine if Novak takes Super Slam, don't you think there would be some immediate changes like introducing very fast surface in one of slams ?

Nole fans are delusional and dumb at the same time. Very dangerous
