:lol: All of your friends has got something to do with Serena !

And no.. Winning all four slams in a row is amazing and is still a 'grand slam'

Yes, I really think so. I've always thought this.

1.) It's calendar
2.) What do you mean by "valid"? By definition, a "calendar slam" is winning 4 slams in ONE CALENDAR YEAR.

a calender slam is what it is :shrug: but a person who has the "grand slam" doesn't have a lesser accomplishment to me :shrug: using serena as an example..she had to miss AO 02 so technically her GS season started at RG and i don't think hers means any less :shrug:

2.) What do you mean by "valid"? By definition, a "calendar slam" is winning 4 slams in ONE CALENDAR YEAR.

:confused:

For me, a calendar is what you have on your wall.

Jan - Dec

I don't see many calendars starting in June 08 - May 09 :confused:

the calendar slam means exactly winning four slams during one season :shrug:

If you win four slams in a row but in different seasons it is called non-calendar slam, i.e. Serena's FO/WIM/USO-02/AO-03.

That's what calendar slam means. Serena's was a "Serena Slam"

omg yes.

that's why its called the "calender slam" because it happens in one calender year.

Valid is not the right word but yes calendar slam is winning all four in the same season. What matters is holding all four majors at the same time. Only five women in history achieved that. Serena is one of them :hearts:

Isn't it also called the "Grand Slam"? :confused:

:scratch: I thought winning all 4 slams in the season was The Grand Slam.

Holding them all at the same time was a Calender Slam :o

Well, it would be stupid to call it the 'calendar' slam if it wasn't in the same year.

As for the 'grand' slam, they did pay Navatilova the million dollar bonus then offered for the grand slam when she won four in a row. Money talks.

And dementieva will never win 4 slams in a row, weak or strong era.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
Why don't you revise your new year's resolution, and lay off Serena? It's getting tired.:rolleyes:

The Calendar Grand Slam is more impressive than the Serena Slam, yes. However, holding all four slams at the same time is still an incredible feat and should be touted and recognized.

The word "valid" is incorrectly used in this thread title (what a surprise) and the transparency of this troll is ridiculous.

The poll speaks for itself.

You poorly worded the question. A calendar slam IS only valid if done in the same year. Yes, DUH. If not done in the same year, it would not be a calendar slam.

Your attempt at disrespecting Serena is not drawn by the conclusion of the poll.

Isn't this like having a poll asking "if clay courts should be made of clay"?....

As usual Demska's stupidity creates a laughable yet entertaining thread. :D

A Calendar Slam by definition can only be completed in a Calendar year.

That's why the Grand Slam is referred to as either Calendar or Non-Calendar Slam.
