Together Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde, known as "The Woodies," earned a record 61 ATP doubles titles, including 11 majors. The pair held the record for the most doubles wins in ATP history, until it was tied by Mike and Bob Bryan in May of this year. They were the first team to win five straight Wimbledon titles, and the only team in the Open Era to win at least one Grand Slam doubles title for six consecutive years. Their 11 Grand Slam titles as a team are an Open Era success story, and are second only to John Newcombe / Tony Roche's record of 12. The duo was named ATP Top Doubles Team five times (1992, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2000). The Woodies won two Olympic Medals - Doubles Gold (1996) and Doubles Silver (2000), and were hailed as the Australian Davis Cup's "Best Doubles Team" with a record of 14-2. In addition, both Woodbridge and Woodforde held singles rankings within the top 20. 
 
Woodforde holds 67 doubles titles, 4 singles titles and 5 mixed doubles crowns. He held down the No. 1 ranking for 84 weeks during his career and upon retirement in December 2000, he was holding the No. 1 individual ranking plus the No. 1 team ranking with Woodbridge. As a ten-year member of the Australian Davis Cup team (1988, 1989, 1993 - 2000), he participated in three finals (1993, 1999, 2000), helping clinch the trophy in 1999. Woodforde won each leg of the Grand Slam in men's doubles as well as in mixed doubles.
