Default Re: Courier: Olympics = 5th major!

Olympics are more important than Slams. Like mentioned before you represent your nation in the biggest sporting event for a competition that is every 4 years. So a player getting one is incredibly difficult. You barely have 2-3 times to get it which is insanely hard considering you go up against the best of the best especially these past 10 years. You ask the top 4...a slam title or singles olympic gold ? All 4 wouldn't even hesitate.

So in that sense you can't call it a slam because it's a different breed. Olympics are olympics, slams are slams.
