Wrong.

2006. Enough said.

A clown wielding a frying pan instead of a racquet could dominate mugs Olderer fluked his titles from (except on clay - good on Rafa for denying Server calendar slam, would have been an epic fiasco to see that sissy winning it).

Default Re: Each of the top 4 won a slam this year.

The coincidental thing is that the first slam of the year was won by the man who occupied the #1 spot on the ATP rankings heading into the tournament (Djokovic - Australian Open), the second slam was won by the #2 ranked player (Nadal - French Open), the third slam was won by the #3 ranked player at the time (Federer - French Open) and the fourth slam was won by the #4 ranked player in the world (Murray - US Open).

Ranking at the start of the tournament that is - obviously there were ranking changes between the top 4 players after Wimbledon and the US Open

This is a first, at least after computer rankings were introduced in 1973.

2003 ended with the four major winners ranked 1-4, but they were not ranked as high during the tournaments.

hmm, that's similar but not quite the same

looks like it's a first, probably because of the machine like consistency of the top 4 in this era
