A "grand slam" can mean two different things in tennis. Most people consider a "grand slam title" winning one of the four majors (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open) However, it can also mean winning all four of these events. If this is done during one season, it is most often referred to as a Calendar Slam (but can also be called a Grand Slam) and if a player wins all four of these events over the course of their career, it is accordingly called a Career Slam. Both are very rare.

There have been only 3 women to have won a Calendar Grand Slam: Maureen Connolly achieved it first, in 1953 Later, in 1970, it was achieved again by Margaret Smith-Court and again, in 1988, by Steffi Graf The last woman to have won the 4 events consecutively, but not in a calendar year, was Serena Williams
