I don't like Volcana. I think it's huge, winning a career Slam. Only 14 people have made the career Slam. Althea Gibson is better remembered and considered a better player than Doris Hart and Shirley Fry, both of whom have the career Slam. Gibson doesn't. So I assume Volcana will pull everything about them from the Internet and then act like he knows their results when he's in fact never heard of them.
I think most view Sampras as better than Agassi, but it is Agassi who has the career Slam. In this day, it's amazing that Serena did it all, she really is that good. But Hingis "should" have won those two French finals. What the result of ONE match does to ONE player, even Gibson, who lost an Australian final, is amazing. If Hingis had won that French against Majoli and not succumbed to pressure later that year later at tournaments, she'd not only have the Grand Slam but a career Slam. It's ONE match. Strange. I think winning all 4 is huge, but history doesn't seem to support it. Career Slammers are the best but most are not remembered well. Sad, but true. So, to answer that turd's question, it really doesn't matter.
