What an epic match did world witness when tennis legend Roger Federer faced Rafael Nadal in Australia Open 2017 final. The ebbs and flow of the dream match enthralled everyone and the high quality of tennis on display was mesmerising, to say the least. Before the tournament started, it was said that miracle requires for Federer and Nadal to reach final. But miracles happened for mortals, the immortals make them happen. So let’s see the most tennis grand slam winners list of Men and Women.
Legendary tennis player, Roger Federer again stamped his claim as the greatest ever at the Australian Open. He won his 5th Australian Open and 18th Grand Slam titles overall includes 7 Wimbledon titles, 5 US Open, 1 French open and 5 Australia Open titles. He is leading the list of the most tennis grand slam winners in men’s category.
Roger with most titles has set a new benchmark and with the lack of consistency in the current crop of players, his record seems safe. His rival, Nadal and Pete Sampras is second in the illustrious list of most grand slams. Each has 14 Grand Slam titles under their belt.
Serbia’s Dokovic and Australia’s Roy Emerson is 3rd on the list with 12 slams each while 2 time calendar Slam champion Rod Laver and Sweden’s Björn Borg is 4th in the list of most tennis grand slam winners list (Men) with 11 slams each.

Serena has just surpassed Steffi Graf’s 22 singles Grand Slam by winning 2017 Australia Open. Let’s have a look at the most tennis grand slam winners list in Women.
