Berdych joins Murray and Tsonga as the only men to beat big 3 at Slams

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know tennis has been dominated by three men for the better part of the past decade, Federer, Nadal and Djokovic, who hold a combined 34 Slams and counting and an incredible amoung of weeks at #1 (basically ever since Federer became #1 after AO 2004).

Up until this Friday, the only men to beat all three of them in Grand Slam events was Tsonga, but with his win over Federer Murray has joined him

Update: Berdych joins the club after beating Nadal at AO 2015!

Active players only one win away from doing this include:

Del Potro - needs a win over Djokovic

Soderling - needs a win over Djokovic

Hewitt - needs a win over Federer

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost
