In tennis, a singles player or doubles team is said to have achieved the Grand Slam title if they succeed in winning all these four titles, including the Wimbeldon in the same year. These tournaments are therefore known as the Grandslam tournaments. The term was first coined in the year 1933 by a US journalist John Kieran. In describing the attempt that year by Jack Crawford to win all the four titles, he compared it with a countered and vulnerable grand slam in bridge.Answered by arunraj vs, 14 Jan '08 11:27 pm
