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

Active players only one win away from doing this include:

Del Potro - needs a win over Djokovic

Berdych - needs a win over Nadal

Soderling - needs a win over Djokovic
Might want to add Hewitt to that list mate. He actually has destroyed Nadal twice in a slam and gave a severe beatdown to Nole at the US Open in 2006 that arguably taught the Serb everything he knew about the game and created the monster we are seeing today. Just needs that elusive win over Rogi, but unlike the rest of the players on your list, he has time on his side...
