I've been going over various GS statistics and realized something interesting. With the AO win Nadal is the current defending champion of the FO, Wimbledon, and AO.

The only other player in the Open Era who could lay claim to this is Rod Laver, and that was a time when AO, W, and USO were on grasscourts.

If that's so isn't that amazing? :D
