TIL, the Swede legend Stefan Edberg won all the junior grand slam titles in 1983, and is the only person to achieve ‘junior grand slam’ in the open era. Also, he accidentally killed a linesman with his serve in a US open.

    Didn’t Donald Young almost do the same? I think he won 3/4 one year.

    edit: OK that’s not true, not sure why I thought that. He did win a couple of juniors titles, one in 2005 and the other in 2007.

    Gael Monfils did win 3/4 once, in 2004. Andy Murray won the fourth.

    I’d heard the story about the linesman. I knew it was from a junior match, didn’t know it was Edberg till now.

    I always wondered if a freak accident or something would happen if a player’s serve hits the linesman. Apparently, it did happen :/

    Didn’t someone’s serve once hit a bird mid match?
