Don Budge in 1938.
In professional tennis, the first black male to win a Grand Slam event in singles was Arthur Ashe in 1968 at the U.S. Open.
as Far as I know; Boris Becker, 17, Wimbledon
Andy Murray, he won the 2012 US Open, defeating Novak Djokovic in five sets.
In 1989, Michael Chang of the USA won the French grand slam title at 17 yrs, 3 months. He also holds the record for the youngest winner of any grand-slam tennis tournament.
Andre Agassi??? Yes, just checked and I am right. It was Agassi.
Rodger Federer won 17 Grand Slam titles - 4 Australian Open; 1 French Open; 7 Wimbledon; 5 U.S. Open.
For males, the answer to this question depends upon a number of factors: If singles alone is to be considered, the most number of Grand Slam titles has been won by Roger Federer. However, Rod Laver is the only man in history to have won the true Calendar Grand Slam twice; further, the prime titles that he won when playing professional tennis have not been accounted for as part of the slam tally. Thus he also lost about six years of his best tennis to the ranks of professional tennis in a day when amateur and professional competitions were separated. On the other hand, if singles and doubles slam titles are treated equally, Roy Emerson has won the most titles of any man in history at 28 in total: he has also won the most doubles Grand Slam titles. Many in fact, consider him to be the greatest doubles player that ever lived. He also held the record for some time of the most singles titles held by a male player. For females, Margaret Court, at a total of 62 titles, undisputably leads the way as the greatest female player in history. She also became the first women's tennis player during the Open tennis era to win the Calendar Grand Slam in singles. She also won the Calendar Grand Slam in Mixed Doubles as well. At 24 singles grand slam singles titles and 38 doubles titles, she stands to claim the crown as both - the greatest ladies' singles player in history and the greatest doubles player. She is the only person to have won all 12 Grand Slam events at least twice - that is, all four major singles titles, all four same-sex doubles titles and all four mixed doubles titles. The International Tennis Hall of Fame states, "There has never been a tennis player to match (her)."
Actually a man has never won a Golden Slam, Steffi Graff is the only person who has achieved it.Andre Agassi won a Career Golden Slam (meaning he won the 4 grand slams plus olympic gold over his whole career, a proper Golden Slam is winning all 5 in the same year)The Williams sisters (as a doubles team) and Australian "Woodies" doubles team have also won Career Golden Slams.
No he was not the first black men to play tennis. Though he was the first black man to win the Us open tennis. But I will try to find the first black man to play tennis.
KrajicekWimbledon winner 1996, beat beat in semi, then Washington in the final... 6'4"
The cast of Slam Man - 2014 includes: Shawn Crapo as Sergei Unistov Brian Eibert as Slam Man Jaci Kjernander as Young Woman
Well, Bill Tilden was 37 at his last Wimbledon title in 1930: he finally went professional from there and won his last "major" pro title at Wembley at 45 years old! So there's a good starter ;)
There is no man named Grand in Moby-Dick. The only capitalized "Grand" in the first chapter is the "Grand Contested Election for the Presidency of the United States." I'm linking below to a full-text search on the word "grand" and also to the first chapter of the book.
Bobby Jones won what was known as the Grand Slam, US Open and Amateur, The Open and British Amateur Championships all in one year. But it was not the official Grand Slam which is all four mens professional majors in one year, as no player has ever won this. Tiger woods won the 2000 US Open, 2000 Open Championship, 2000 PGA Championship and 2001 Masters, this is known as the Tiger Slam, the only man to hold all four major titles at one time.
It was Arthur Ashe.
Gus Johonson. ---- Click on the 'Gus Johnson' link to read about one of the first men to turn the slam dunk into a work of art and the first man I ever saw shatter a backboard with a slam dunk.
Roger Fedora??? You mean Roger Federer? How could you get the name wrong of the greatest man and tennis player on this terrestrial planet? Alas, Roger lost in a five-setter to Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open in 2009 and to Juan-Martin del Potro in the 2009 US Open. He won Wimbledon as well as the French Open this year. The French Open cinched his career grand slam--winning all four major tournaments and Wimbledon cinched his record-breaker 15 grand slam titles beating out Pete Sampras' record of 14. Pete also never won the French Open, thus making Roger Federer the undisputed greatest tennis champion of all time.
Arthur Ash is a tennis player, and the first black man to win Wimbledon.
I believe it was Arthur Ashe.
She was a woman tennis player and she beat Bobby Riggs, a man tennis player.
