if…

In the Open-era, only 4 of 1991 male players (Laver, Borg, Wilander,
Courier) were able to win the first 2 Grand Slams of the year! It means
that every 497th player has a mathematical chance for winning the first
2 Slams of the year!

  • If Djokovic completes his career Grand Slam in Paris, he will
    become the 8th male player who will achieve this feat in the history of
    tennis, and the 5th male player who will complete it in Paris.
