He is now the fifth player in the history of tennis and the second player in the open era to win all three Grand Slams of the year. Congratulating Djokovic, Roger Federer said, "Congratulations on winning the 20th Grand Slam."

Djokovic has a hand in building more fame. Rod Laver won all four Grand Slams of the year in 1969. Djokovic will sit next to him if he wins the US Open.

Not only that, winning the Olympic gold will also build the reputation of the 'Golden Slam'. Steffi Graf holds the record for being the only athlete to win four Grand Slams of the year in 1988, as well as the Olympics. Can Djokovic touch his milestones?
