Biography

Steffi Graf ranks as one of the top female tennis players of all-time. She won 22 Grand Slam singles titles, and more than one hundred tournament victories in all. Her titles include 7 Wimbledon victories, 6 victories at Roland Garros, 5 in the US Open, 4 at the Australian Open and 5 WTA Tour Championships. Her best year was 1988 when she became the first woman in 18 years to win all Grand Slam tournaments in a single season. She added the Olympic title at the revived Olympic tennis tournament, leaving the media to dub her season a "Golden Slam". Graf, who had already won the 1984 Olympic tennis tournaments - then still a demonstration sport - was heavily favoured to win the 1992 edition as well, and easily made it to the final. There, she was upset by American teenager Jennifer Capriati. Graf won her last Grand Slam title in 1999. At the winner's ball, she met with Andre Agassi, the men's winner. The two would marry in 2001.
