What is a Grand Slam?
Professional tennis has various tennis tournaments taking place throughout the world. The most prestigious tennis tournaments are Grand Slams a.k.a. Majors.
The Grand Slam is the biggest stage in the world of professional tennis where players compete in a knockout format.
In a nutshell, there are 4 majors.
Winning a slam is a huge deal.
You can imagine how much of a champion it takes to win over 15 slams.
Only 3 of the greatest tennis players of all time, in the history of tennis have won 15 or more Grand slam major tournaments – Roger Federer (20 slams) , Rafael Nadal (18 slams) & Novak Djokovic (16 slams).
