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.

Golden slam = All 4 slams and olympic gold.

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

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...

Next chance is July 28, 2061. He'll do it.

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.

Not sure, but this is a grand slam.

Rumor has it that Roddick and Fish earned quite a few of these early in their careers.

He's also the only one publicly known to wear a wig during a slam final. Is there such a thing as a Wigged Hiper Slam? Or more accurately, a Small Wigged Hiper Slam since he did not win that wigged final?

Well, maybe he used the wing for keeping balance during a difficult volley?

Never thought of that, Agassi fluttering around the court like a butterfly... poetic.

What the hell? :p

for your information, there is such a thing called a career "box set" - meaning winning all slams in all categories (singles, doubles, and mixed doubles)...

only 3 people have done it, the most recent was martina navratilova. serena is just 2 mixed doubles titles short of achieveing this...

If Golden Slam is 4 Slams + Olympic Gold in singles, and Super Slam is 4 Slams + YEC + Olympic Gold, what is 4 Slams + YEC?

Also, would 4 Slams + 9/9 Masters get a special name?

Winning 9/9 Masters = Master Slam
Winning 4 Slams + 9 Masters = Grand Master Slam

Does a player who wins the "Grand Master Slam" get to be called the Grand Master (like in chess)?

Federer has a gold medal in Olympics doubles, not singles. Not the same thing. If he only needs a Davis Cup to complete his Super Ultra Deluxe Golden Hippitty Hoppitty Mumbo Jumbo Career Grand Slam, then Mats Wilander has a career Slam with his Australian, French, Wimbledon and U.S. Open titles.

Davis Cup + Olympic Gold + 9 Masters + 4 Slams + WTF = (Career) Super Mega Ultra Turbo Hyper Tera Exa Giga Nuclear Omni Golden Masters Slam. Djokovic just needs to win Cinci, RG and win Rio 2016, and he would have this.

Winning 9/9 Masters = Master Slam
Winning 4 Slams + 9 Masters = Grand Master Slam

ATP already has the name for it I think called the Golden Masters Slam which makes it confusing if someone won a Gold Medal in the Olympics.
