A champion of the highest order, Steffi Graf turned the world of women’s tennis upside down through the 1980s and 1990s. A woman of quiet dignity who spoke loudly with her racquet, she became the only tennis player to capture every Major tournament at least four times, including the “Golden Grand Slam” in 1988. She finished eight seasons as the No. 1 ranked woman in the world. Her mighty forehand was regarded by many as the best ever produced by a woman, and her foot speed was astonishing. Following her retirement, she married fellow tennis great Andre Agassi.
