Golden Slam

What does Golden Slam mean in Tennis?

Winning both the Tennis Grand Slam and the Olympics gold medal

When a tennis player achieves a Golden Slam, they’ve won not only the prestigious Grand Slam tournaments, but also bagged a gold medal at the Summer Olympic Games in the same year.

Grand Slam means winning four major tournaments in a year – Wimbledon, US Open, Australian Open, and French Open. But when a player also wins a gold medal at the Summer Olympics, it’s called a Golden Slam or Golden Grand Slam.

This is a feat of immense skill and endurance, marking a player’s dominance in the world of tennis. It’s a rare achievement, as tennis players need to be at their peak performance throughout the year to win these five significant titles.
