Winning a Grand Slam tournament is no easy feat. Only seventeen players have managed to win a grand slam title on ITST tour in the past eight years, a remarkable fact considering that hunders of players compete for the biggest trophies every season. The reality becomes even grimer for ITST rank and file dreaming of winning a slam one day when we realize that out of 17 different slam winners, only six of them have more than one title on the biggest stage.
In this article, we will take a look at grand slam history and achievements of champions who are making ITST history since 2012.

The table below may appear a little daunting if you're not an ITST junkie so we will break it down by drawing the most important stats from the info we've collected.
