Career Super Slam (?)

Is there really such a term?

I got this term from Wikipedia's entry for Andre Agassi. According to the entry, among male players, he is the only one to achieve the Career Super Slam, by winning all 4 GS tournaments, plus Olympics and ATP Championships.

Roger has one shot in achieving this in 2012, while Rafa has several chances to achieve the Career Super Slam since the season ending championships happen every year.

Re: Career Super Slam (?)

there is also the Career Super Duper Slam and you better be biting your nails that Nadal wins it, because it's achievable only once every 88 years

Re: Career Super Slam (?)

Steffi has achieved the career slam, calendar grand slam, golden slam, career golden slam and the career super slam.

She missed the Super Slam in 1988 when she lost to (of all people) Pam Shriver. I guess Pam's forehand slice was too intimidating for her. Lol...

In 2061, Nadal will be in only the second year of his peak. Expect improvement yearly until then. His serve will break the sound barrier, his scheduling skills will be worshiped around the world during the annual live broadcast, and the new Olympic gold medals will be shaped in the likeness of his balls.
