Greatest achievements other than winning majors
With so much of the focus always going to the slams it's perhaps a good idea to have a thread about achievements in tennis other than winning any of the four majors. The poll choices are just the first that came to my mind, but I'm sure that there must be others that are jus as noteworthy. If so, feel free to discuss them. I've limited it to recent achievements by currently active players.

I chose other Serena Williams winning the Gold Medal in singles at the Olympics and completing a career golden slam in singles and doubles the only player male or female to do so.

I would say Caroline just because weeks at number 1 is, I believe, the second factor obviously to majors, that makes a great player.

Voted Caroline. That stat alone will make people doubt Wikipedia's validity for all eternity.
