Graff retired in 1999, after a distinguished 17-year career on the WTA tour. The Mannheim native is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2004.

The German star's legendary career saw her win 107 career singles titles and 11 doubles titles. Furthermore, Graf reached the pinnacle of the tennis world, claiming the World No.1 spot and holding that position for a total of 377 weeks. She finished as the year-ending No.1 eight times, winning 22 Grand Slam singles titles and five WTA Finals titles.
Graf left her mark on the tennis world, establishing a legacy that is sure to be remembered. She won the Golden Slam in 1988, which consists of winning all four Majors and the Olympic gold medal in one year. Additionally, she had five calendar years where she won at least three Major singles titles, and was able to defend all four Major titles on her first try. Known for her high tennis IQ and inimitable footwork, Graf could have added a few more Majors to her resume but chose to retire at 30 years of age. She also got married to a tennis player by the name of Andre Agassi.
