Steffi Graf confident her '88 'Golden Slam' can be repeated
Yahoo News - over 1 year
Steffi Graf says it is just a matter of time before a current star repeats her unique achievement of winning the four Grand Slams and Olympic gold in a single season. As a 19-year-old, Graf made history by becoming the only player to win all four majors, plus Olympic gold, a feat dubbed the 'Golden Slam', when she beat Gabriela Sabatini in the final of the 1988 Seoul games. Having retired in 1999, aged 30, with 22 Grand Slam titles to her name, Graf, now 47, is in Rio de Janeiro to see if Andy Murray and Serena Williams can defend the respective Olympic titles they won four years ago in London.
