With his latest victory Djokovic became just the 4th player in the last 30 years to win 3 of the 4 Grand Slam events in a single year. Mats Wilander accomplished the feat in 1988 failing only to win Wimbledon, Roger Federer did it 3 times (2004, 2006, 2007) each time failing to win the French Open, Nadal won 3 in a row last year after getting knocked out of the Australian Open in the quarterfinals, and now Djokovic.
Only two men have ever won all four events in the same year. Rod Laver did it twice, in 1962 and again in 1969, and Don Budge accomplished the feat back in 1938.
