Lawn tennis was invented in France in the 11th century, while the open era of tennis has produced many incredible champions. It has seen many miracles. Many players have won Grand Slams multiple times in the history of tennis.

This is something that avid tennis lovers are very aware of. There are so many talents of a grand slam on this list. We will tell you all about the great victories in the Grand Slam finals in tennis history.

1. Roger Federer

Roger Federer’s incredible tennis skills have won the hearts of everyone. His skill and talent earned him the title “The Swiss maestro.” The 8-time Wimbledon champion has seen a lot since his ATP debut in 1998 at the Swiss Open Gstaad.

He won 103 ATP singles, which includes 20 major singles titles. He is also the first tennis player to achieve more than 14 grand slams.

2. Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal is the new GOAT! Federer was the first man to achieve the honour of 20 Grand Slam singles titles. Nada made history. Over 5 sets, 5 hours, and 24 minutes, Nadal defeated Medvedev in the Australian Open final, on 30 January 2024. He became the most outstanding player, with 21 Grand Slam singles titles.

With 13 French Open titles and 21 grand slam titles, he is known as the king of the clay. Tennis fans are well-known for Nadal’s unwavering work ethic and mental strength. This was evident when he defeated Federer in the Wimbledon final in 2008. Rafal Nadal presently holds 89 ATP titles.

No player may have won nine titles at Roland Garros in a decade. A clay-court specialist may become rarer as stars like Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic have overcome severe obstacles with their all-courts abilities.

3. Rod Laver

Laver was able to cross the transition from amateur to professional tennis. This made him one of the greatest players of all time and one of the most important.

While Laver has won 200 singles titles, his second calendar-year sweep at all four Grand Slam tournaments was remarkable. It happened seven years after his first Slam sweep. This will forever emphasize his greatness.

4. Novak Djokovic


Djokovic won over Federer in 2014 and became the first man to beat Federer at all four Grand Slams. Djokovic also had surpassed what seemed to be a declining Nadal as the player with the best chance of beating Federer’s major record.

However, both Nadal and Federer have seen huge resurgences over the decades. The 2024 Wimbledon, French Open, and Australian titles were won by Djokovic, which brings his total to 20 grand slams.

5. Ivan Lendl

The baseline approach of Ivan Lendi revolutionized the game. Lendl earned the 8 Grand Slam singles championships on his name and became the most dominant power in the second half of the 1980s.

Lendl holds several prestigious records, including the longest indoor winning streak of 66 games and the most Grand Slam runners-up finishes (11). One of his most notable achievements is making it to the 19th Grand Slam finals.

6. Pete Sampras

Sampras held 14 Grand Slam, a lifetime accomplishment while retiring from his professional tennis, and it was expected that it would continue. Although the speculation was wrong, Sampras’ almost invincible play on fast courts is still classic.
