Question Which is the most impressive "The Grand Slam of Tennis"?

"The Grand Slam of Tennis" is to hold all four majors at the same time.

Five women have done that in singles tennis in six different streaks of wins.

Please vote for which one you think is the most impressive and justify your answer.

to me Serena's is the most impressive..........to not only win four slams in a row but to do it each time in the final over your sister .........well that takes a lot of mental strengh imo........she faced match pts. in the ao semi...with all the pressure on her to win four in a row (which hadn't been done since steffi) she was able to come through it...she was utterly brilliant for those 4 slams!

Serena Slam, because she did it with the highest competition.

Really, don't even look at me...

To compare a non-calendar grand slams with a real grand slam is retarded to the max!
A real Grand Slam only can be started with the first slam of the year, meaning only ONCE every year. Only in ONE of FOUR cases four consecutive slam wins mean a real Grand Slam.

Everybody in his right mind would take Graf's GOLDEN Grand Slam of course. She won the 4 slams PLUS the gold medal at the Olympics. Only once in every four years is it possible to do this!
And that the Olympics feature tennis only since 1988 is no valid argument as all the other contenders in your poll won their consecutive slams in years without Olympics ....

So Graf.
Of course.
As always.

Do you even know how the idea of "The Grand Slam" was initiated?

I voted for the one that was most likely to piss people off.

Whitney Houston and her receipts:

Dunno about Connelly and Court, as AO was an utter junk back then and tennis was not played by so many people. Not Steffi's two either, as one of them was after two most dominant players ever have just passed their prime and there was not much of a competition, and another of them was just after stubbing, so not much of competition either. A tossup between Navratilova who had to face qutie a decent field, and Serena who had to deal with a decent field too,

"Biased" and "not caring".
That can explain voting for the "Serena slam" of course.
