Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

What do you think are the most impressive accomplishments for a tennis player to aspire for? Obviously the crowning achievement is winning "The Grand Slam" (Australian Open-French Open-Wimbledon- US Open) or in Graf's case the "Golden Grand Slam." Those are purposely left out because they are established as an ultimate achievement.

Again this is NOT comparing the actual records that have been achieved/broken, but in terms of what you would view as an "Ultimate Achievement" for a player.

Career Grand Slam. Lots of legends are DYING to snatch a career GS.
Who remembers the finalists of consecutive slams or no.1 doubles players?
Collecting a GS title 4 times or more is GOAT too

Beating both Williams sisters in less than 24 hours (one of those beatings would be the worst of Venus' entire career).

Re: Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

Well, I think an unbroken streak of wins from start to finish during a whole career would be fine enough.

edit: I think it's possible in the case of a very short career.

Re: Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

All those are amazing feats to achieve Along with the golden set as well but only Shvedova fans will vote for that one

I would say Career Slam will be at the top of the list. When I started following tennis as a kid I would always remember how amazing it should feel to win all the four at least once.

Re: Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

I think achieving the career grand slam is the most impressive because it requires you to have establish a game that can win on all surfaces.

I also think winning back to back slams is very impressive with FO-Wimb being the most impressive

Re: Most Impressive Tennis Accomplishment(s)

lol at this thread, wat was the idea behind placing 'Winning Consecutive Grand Slams (ex. AO-FO WM-US)' and 'Making 4 Consecutive slam finals (ex. WM-US-AO-FO)' in competition...
