Marker needed to define court surface change in Australian & USOpens[edit]

Grass court was the surface for USOpen till 1975. Australian Open adopted hardcourt after 1987 and used grasscourt prior to that.

having a color marker {{{1}}}|{{{1}}} can help distinguish the two significant events for counting surface expertise and variety in slam counts.

Winner of grand slam in all 3 different surface in same calendar year[edit]

Nadal's picture comment should mention his achievement of 2010 where he won slams in all 3 different surface in same year. He is the only player to achieve so, hence it deserves to be mentioned in his summary written below his picture. its also worth noting that he is youngest player to achieve career golden slam.

"Andre Agassi was the first player to complete the Career Grand Slam on three different surfaces, and the first male player in history to win the Career Golden Slam (winning the four Grand Slams and the Olympic Gold Medal in singles)."

Please replace "Andre Agassi was the first player to complete the Career Grand Slam on three different surfaces,"

with Andre Agassi was the first male player to complete the Career Grand Slam on three different surfaces,

as his current wife Stephanie Graf most certainly completed that achievement well before Andre did.

Please add the following: 'Andre Agassi was also the first male player to complete the Career Grand Slam on four different surfaces since the Australian Open was played on "Rebound Ace" which was a rubberized hard court during the time period of his career, a significantly different surface from the U.S Open's Deco Turf II hardcourt.'

I added "male". As for distinguishing types of hard courts, that's not usually done in terms of statistics etc. the ATP for example maintains lists of hard court achievements but does not do this for the various types separately. Gap9551 (talk) 20:30, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

It's not clear to me what change you'd like to see. Gap9551 (talk) 18:53, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
You need to color Roger Federer's background in the list of winners for 2017, since he won 2 Grand Slams. --94.18.190.38 (talk) 08:23, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, someone has done this by now. Gap9551 (talk) 21:11, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
