Calendar Grand Slam– Steffi Graf, 1988

Steffi Graf, who has won 22 Grand Slams in her career, won the Calendar Grand Slam at a very young age of 19 in 1988. She had also won the Olympic Gold medal and WTA Tour championships.

Margaret Court, 1988

Margaret Court, who has most grand slam titles in women’s singles, had won the Calendar Grand Slam in 1970.  She is the only three singles players to win six consecutive Grand Slams titles (1969-71).

Who said what:

Novak Djokovic

“I know what’s on the line. I’m aware of it. Of course, I’m aware of it. But I’m just trying to lock into what I know works for me. I have my routines, I have my people. I isolate myself. I gather all the necessary energy for the next battle, only the next match.”

“There is only one match left—all in,” said Djokovic. “I’m going to put my heart and my soul and my body and my head into that one. I’m going to treat the next match like it is the last match of my career.” 

Daniil Medvedev

“I’m just going to turn up the heat, if I can say that, and try to do my best.” 

“If it is going to be the same match on Sunday [as the 2019 US Open final], I just hope I can win this time,” Medvdev added.
