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)."
So far, he has won 16 Grand Slam singles titles. The most by any male player ever.
Tennis. Steffi Graf is arguably one of the best female tennis players ever. She had a career record of 902-115 (88.7%), she won 22 grand slam singles titles (4 Australian, 6 French, 7 Wimbledon, and 5 US), and she won the gold medal in the 1988 olympic games.
Laver won 2 true Full Grand Slams - that is, he won all four Major titles - Wimbledon, the French, US and Australian - in the same calendar year twice: in 1962 and in 1969. He is the only player in history to do so.He is also the only player in history to win the full grand slam in singles titles and also win a grand slam doubles title in that same calendar year, being in 1969: partnered by the great Roy Emerson, the two won the Australian Open.In total, Laver won 11 grand slam singles events and 6 grand slam doubles titles, making him probably the most "complete" player in history to date.During the earlier 1960's, while major tennis players were divided into 'professional' circuits as opposed to 'amateur' circuits, Laver was also the only person ever to win the 'grand slam' of professional tennis, in 1967: so one could effectively say that technically, he won 3 Grand Slams in major tennis worldwide!!!Such feats, of course, are never likely to ever be repeated.
Björn Borg became the first tennis player to win five consecutive Wimbledon titles in the 1980 Wimbledon Men's Singles final after he defeated John McEnroe in a five-set match, often cited as the best Wimbledon final ever played.
Answer1Bill Tilden.He dominated the sport from 1912 until about 1930, winning 138 of 192 tournaments in that period, and compiling a match record of 907-62.He wrote about the sport for newspapers, and authored the classic tennis book "Match Play and the Spin of the Ball."His arrests on morals charges seriously tarnished his image.Answer 2Rod Laver is probably the greatest lawn tennis player of all.Certainly, most polls have chosen him as the greatest ever tennis player, but even as a 'grass player' only, I would choose him as the Best.The reason I say this is that 9 of his 11 Grand slam singles titles were won on grass. Yet a further 4 Professional Slam singles titles were also won on grass, whereas, if one was to compare with Tilden [as suggested above] - Tilden won only 2 on grass.Also, Doubles on grass: Tilden rarely won a doubles slam; Rod Laver won 7 grand slam doubles titles on grass surface.
Rod Laver was the only Tennis player who won the Grand Slams in both amateur and open era.
Althea Gibson was the first black tennis player to win a Grand Slam title (1956). Arthur Ashe was the first MALE black tennis player to win a Grand Slam title (1968).
No. She was in the table-tennis women's singles in Beijing, but she went out in the first round.
Yes, a bronze in women's singles tennis at the 2000 Games in Sydney.
Boris Franz Becker (born 22 November 1967) is a former World No. 1 professional tennis player from Germany. He is a six-time Grand Slam singles champion, an Olympic gold medalist, and the youngest-ever winner of the men's singles title at Wimbledon at the age of 17.Tennis Magazine put Becker in 18th place on its list of the 40 greatest tennis players from 1965 to 2005.
No. Lleyton has appeared in two Olympics. He finished 33rd in men's singles tennis at the 2000 Summer Games in Sydney. At the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, he finished 17th in men's singles tennis and 5th in men's doubles tennis with partner Chris Guccione.
Not in a match match but I guess just for a fun game.
yes, when he plays tennis
How about Vic Seixas, Dick Savitt, and Pete Sampras? That enough for you? And that's just the mens' singles titles - there were others...
She is an amazing tennis player. She is great a doubles. She focuses on doubles more than on singles. She is also amazing at art. She is top in tennis and art in the area that she lives in. VIctoria Falk is the coolest person ever!!!
Maureen Connolly of the United States in 1953.In her short (five year) professional career in women's tennis, Maureen Connolly won tournament after tournament, proving herself to be one of the all-time great singles women tennis players. Born on September 17, 1934, Connolly was 10 years old when she first picked up a racket. She entered her first competition soon after. When she was 14, she became the youngest girl ever to win the national junior tennis championship. She entered the women's league in 1950, racking up titles; in 1953, she became the first and youngest woman to win the Grand Slam. Just a year later, a horseback-riding accident resulted in an injury to her leg that made it impossible for Connolly to continue to play competitively.
Of course! Venus Williams, Serena Williams...and probably other people but they're the only ones I know of who won both in one tennis major.
Probably beating Steffi Graf's record for most grand slam singles wins in the open era. Her new best achievement will be beating Margaret Court's record for most grand slam singles wins ever. Hopefully she can do it.
It is the gayest question ever.
