Trivia
Who was the first tennis player to win a career Golden Slam in the same year?
A career Golden Slam is achieved by any tennis player who wins all four Grand Slam tournaments and the Olympic Gold Medal during their career. To date, only one player has accomplished this in a single year. In 1988, Steffi Graf won the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon, the Olympic Singles Gold Medal, and the US Open.
