Who are the four active players to have won at least one slam on each surface?

Winning a slam is every tennis player’s dream, winning it on any surface is that of legends. Today we want to talk about who are the four active players to have won at least one slam on each surface.

# 4 Serena Williams

The smallest of the Williams sisters, as was easily imagined, among her 23 slams she holds at least one on each surface. She achieved her record in 2002 with victories at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, adding to her first slam success in 1999 on hard courts at the US Open. In the same year she also took home the US Open, scoring the so-called Surface Slam (a consecutive winning slam on each different surface), which she will repeat in 2015.

# 3 Rafael Nadal

The Spaniard is the man with the most slams won in the Open era and these have arrived on all surfaces. Rafa also had to wait a long time to complete the finish, as the first Roland Garros arrived in 2005 and the first slam on hard courts (the Australian Open) only four years later (in between the exciting success of 2008 at Wimbledon in final with Roger Federer). In 2010 the Surface Slam arrives for him too, with consecutive victories in Paris, London and New York.

# 2 Roger Federer

The Swiss had to wait six years before winning a slam on every surface. To think that the first two had arrived on two different terrains (the grass of Wimbledon in 2003 and the hard court of the Australian Open). To see him triumph in Paris we have to wait for the 2009 final against Robin Soderling.

# 1 Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic is the player who took the longest of the four to win a slam on every surface. The Serbian, in fact, won the Australian Open for the first time in 2008, but had to wait a full eight years before winning Roland Garros in 2016 (in between, his first victory at Wimbledon in 2011). The Surface Slam also arrived in 2021 with victories in Australia, France and Great Britain.

Honorable mention

He left tennis in recent weeks and, therefore, could not be part of this ranking, but Asleigh Barty, with the victory in Melbourne, has conquered a slam on every surface (Roland Garros 2019, Wimbledon 2021 and Australian Open 2022).
