    Yep Rod got that one...

    But wasn't Steffi Graf the only person ever to get a Golden Slam? (won all four grand slams and a gold in the olympics in the same year)

    Olympics are ok, but like Davis Cup, the best players usually dont play in them. They rather play a money tournament, then play the Olympics.
