History

The term Grand Slam, as applied to tennis, was first used by New York Times columnist John Kieran according to Total Tennis, The Ultimate Tennis Encyclopedia by Bud Collins. In the chapter about 1933, Collins writes that after the Australian player Jack Crawford had won the Australian, French, and Wimbledon Championships, speculation arose about his chances in the U.S. Championships. Kieran, who was a bridge player, wrote: "If Crawford wins, it would be something like scoring a grand slam on the courts, doubled and vulnerable." Crawford, an asthmatic, won two of the first three sets of his finals match against Fred Perry, then tired in the heat and lost the last two sets and the match. The New York Times is an internationally known daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed in the United States and many other nations worldwide. ... John F.

Career Grand Slam

Winning all four Grand Slam tournaments during a career is termed a Career Grand Slam. (The players who won all four Grand Slam tournaments during a single calendar year are also listed elsewhere in this article.) Since the beginning of the open era in 1968, only five women and one man have achieved a Career Grand Slam. A number of players have failed to achieve the Career Grand Slam because they did not have long careers or because a particular tournament was ill-suited to the player's game. Bjorn Borg never won the US Open or the Australian Open. John McEnroe never won the Australian Open or the French Open. Ken Rosewall, Guillermo Vilas, Ivan Lendl, Monica Seles, Justine Henin, and Mats Wilander failed to win Wimbledon. John Newcombe, Jimmy Connors, Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg, Pete Sampras, Martina Hingis and (thus far) Roger Federer, Lindsay Davenport, Venus Williams, and Maria Sharapova failed to win the French Open.
