1988: Grand Slam for Steffi Graf

One is of course, Boris Becker‘s first Wimbledon victory on 7th July 1985, and the other is 10th September, when Steffi Graf, at the tender age of 19 fulfilled a tennis player‘s dream by achieving a Grand Slam, that is winning all four of the world’s greatest tennis tournaments within one calendar year.
