Stat of the Day: Barbora Krejcikova is now a Grand Slam champion in singles, doubles and mixed doubles
She’s just the fourth active women’s player to achieve the feat.
Published Jun 13, 2021
She’s talked about not wanting to be known as just a doubles specialist, and she most certainly won’t be known as that now—Barbora Krejcikova won her first Grand Slam singles title at Roland Garros on Saturday, after a 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 see-saw battle against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.
With that, Krejcikova becomes just the fourth active women’s player to have won a Grand Slam title in all three disciplines: singles, doubles and mixed doubles.
- Serena Williams: 23 in singles, 14 in doubles, 2 in mixed doubles
- Venus Williams: 7 in singles, 14 in doubles, 2 in mixed doubles
- Samantha Stosur: 1 in singles, 3 in doubles, 3 in mixed doubles
- Barbora Krejcikova: 1 in singles, 2 in doubles, 3 in mixed doubles
“I mean, it’s something I have always dreamed about, winning here, my first doubles title, then some doubles titles, then winning the mixed ones,” Krejcikova said on Saturday. “Now I was just telling myself that it would be really nice if I can get the Grand Slam in all three categories.
“Now it’s happening. I cannot believe it. Now it’s happening. Wow.”
For all four players, their singles Slam came last. The Williams sisters both won their first mixed doubles title in 1998, their first doubles title at 1999 Roland Garros, then their first singles titles over the next year and a half. Stosur won her first mixed doubles title at the 2005 Australian Open, her first doubles title at the 2005 US Open and then the singles at the 2011 US Open.
Krejcikova won her doubles titles first (Roland Garros and Wimbledon in 2018), then her mixed doubles titles (at the Australian Open in 2019, 2020 and 2021) and now her first singles title.
The Czech can add another title to her tally on Sunday, as she and Katerina Siniakova play the women’s doubles final at Roland Garros against Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Iga Swiatek.
