Stats Corner: Three Or More Slams At Once
Roberta Vinci, Sara Errani

Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci picked up their first doubles major just last June, yet in following up that French Open triumph with victories at the US Open in September and then the Australian Open last week they have entered some rare company.

The Italians are just the ninth team to hold at least three of the major titles at once. Here is a list of all nine of those duos along with their best stretch of Grand Slam success:
