    It should be noted that when Rod Laver achieved his calendar slams (once as an Open-Era professional), 3 of the 4 slams were played on grass (Budge included). Of course, Roland Garros was clay, which is still the big obstacle for Federer, the closest any male player has come since Laver’s 1969 sweep (2006).

    We’ll just have to wait and see.
