In 2011 Andy  became only the seventh player in the Open Era to reach the semi-finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments in one year.

Ok now Andy has reached 5 in a row. Does anyone know how many other players have achieved that?

"Obviously I'm not taking anything for granted here with the match tomorrow, but the thought occurred to me to look up what the records are for consecutive slam semi-finals. Murray is currently on four, of course, but the all-time list is:

Roger Federer - 23
Ivan Lendl - 10
Novak Djokovic - 6*
Rafael Nadal - 5
Boris Becker - 5
Rod Laver - 4
Andre Agassi - 4
Jim Courier - 4
John McEnroe - 4
Tony Rocher - 4
Andy Murray - 4*"

That was posted before the Nishikori match. Now Murray is on 5 and Djokovic is on 7.

Thanks Dex! Only 3 players have done better than Andy now.

Think of some of the names NOT on that list.

McEnroe
Connors
Borg
Sampras

to name a few

We have to remember that some of the big names chose to miss slams now and again so it is not truly reflective, but it is still an interesting stat and I hope he racks up quite a few more.
