Just curious.

We all know that the 4 Grand Slams have a great history etc.

However - consider this and answer the following:


1. Which GS do you see being replaced or removed first ?

2. Under what circumstances would that happen ? What would trigger such change ? Corruption/terrorist attack/natural disaster/other ?

3. Where would a new GS be ?

4. When would that happen ? In next 20-50-100 yrs ?

Discuss.

China will have a Slam on each surface, and Russia could have an indoor Slam.

Maybe in 25 years, a slam on each continent + subcontinents
- Europe : Wim
- NA : uso
- SA : i guess Rio with Olympics infrastructure
- Pacific : AO
- Asia : China will get one
- India : 1.5+ billion people and no slam? not realistic. IPTL will promote the sport
- Middle East : probably in Dubai because of money, unless an oil war or something makes the area absolutely unsafe
- Africa : hard to say, Nigeria or South Africa maybe
- Russia : maybe

That would make 8 or 9 slams, basically twice the current frequency.
+ 9 M1000s, in between each

1. None.
2. Under no circumstances.
3. Not applicable.
4. Never.

Leave slams as is. No need to change anything.

8 Slams is hardly a possibility in the next 500 years.;)
