1988 US Open Women’s Singles Championship Trophy presented to Stefanie Graf

When Graf defeated Argentina’s Gabriela Sabatini 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 at the final major of the year, she joined an elite group of players who have achieved the Grand Slam, including the first player to do so, Don Budge (1938), who was present to witness the historic event.

This racquet was used by Stefanie Graf during her US Open victory in 1988. (Gift of Stefanie Graf, 1988)
