List of players who have won Career Grand Slam in Men’s Singles
Only a handful have won all four majors.
The four major tournaments in a calendar year in tennis are known as the Grand Slam tournaments. A player is said to have won Calendar Grand Slam if he/she wins all four Grand Slam titles in a single calendar year. If a player wins all four Grand Slam titles but not in one single year then he/she is said to have won the Career Grand Slam.
The bests in the world compete for the Grand Slam titles. So it is not surprising that very few people in history have managed to achieve the Career Grand Slam. Here is a list of all the players that have managed to win a Career Grand Slam in Men’s Singles:
