Steffi Graf
By Sharon Fabian

1     Stefanie Graf was a great tennis player. She won the gold medal at the Seoul, Korea, Olympics in 1988 and a silver Olympic medal in 1992. In 1988, she also won all four major tennis tournaments -- the Australian Open, the French Open, the U.S. Open, and Wimbledon. This is known as the Grand Slam. In fact, she won major tennis tournaments year after year. She was ranked #1 for 186 consecutive weeks in 1987-1990. She was ranked #1 for 377 weeks altogether, longer than any other tennis player.
2     The career of a champion athlete is different from the career of, say, a nurse or a banker. An athletic career often starts at a very young age, and ends at a young age, too. What is the life of a famous athlete really like? Of course, everyone is different, but here is what Steffi's life has been like so far.
3     Steffi Graf was born in Mannheim, Germany, in 1969. She began playing tennis at the age of four, encouraged by her father. She was really good at it, and her father continued to coach her. By the age of 13, Steffi was already being recognized as a rising star in tennis and was ready to turn pro. When she was first ranked #1, she was still in her teens. She won her Olympic medals in her teens and early twenties. She continued to win tournaments for a number of years after that, and then retired from tennis at the age of thirty.
