He may win the US Open (this will be updated after the us open is over).

Right now...Pete Sampras is at the top with 14 Grand Slam titles, next is Roger Federer.
But when I research (on wikipedia), they discussed that Bill Tilden was the greatest player...then there is Donald Budge who is the 1st person to win all four grand slam titles...

Anyhoo, according to that weblink, the dates are 18 - 31 January 2010.

Laver won 2 true Full Grand Slams - that is, he won all four Major titles - Wimbledon, the French, US and Australian - in the same calendar year twice: in 1962 and in 1969. He is the only player in history to do so.
He is also the only player in history to win the full grand slam in singles titles and also win a grand slam doubles title in that same calendar year, being in 1969: partnered by the great Roy Emerson, the two won the Australian Open.
In total, Laver won 11 grand slam singles events and 6 grand slam doubles titles, making him probably the most "complete" player in history to date.
During the earlier 1960's, while major tennis players were divided into 'professional' circuits as opposed to 'amateur' circuits, Laver was also the only person ever to win the 'grand slam' of professional tennis, in 1967: so one could effectively say that technically, he won 3 Grand Slams in major tennis worldwide!!!
Such feats, of course, are never likely to ever be repeated.
