    Before Federer, Nadal, & Djokovic, you could count the truly great seasons on one hand! You had Connors winning 3 of the 4 majors in '74, Rod Laver with his 2 Grand Slams ('62, '69), Borg's '78 winning The Old World Triple (Rome, Paris, Wmbldn), McEnroe who was almost unbeatable in '84, and the career Slam and Olympic Gold of Andre Agassi! Amazingly enough within the last few years, we've had career Grand Slams achieved by Federer and Nadal with Silver and Gold Olympic medals respectively and Djokovic taking 3 of 4 majors in 2011 and 2015 along with several Masters events! Honorary mentions of Wilander's '88, Lendl's ('86-87), Sampras ('93-97) with multiple majors and WTF!

    For the ladies, it's a little easier, but no less impressive with Margaret Smith Court winning the Grand Slam in '70, Golden Slam of Steffi Graf in '88, career Slams by King, Evert, Navratilova (6 majors in a row), Sharapova, and Serena Williams with Olympic Gold in singles and doubles(2)! This is all off the top of my head! Any additions you think should make it? B-)

    It seems to me you have hit on most of the best seasons ever, with Serena's year this year being one of the best for a female player.
