    Tony Trabert is a former tennis star who won a total of 10 Grand Slam Titles in his career.


    Until Michael Chang's French Open victory in 1989, Trabert was the last American to win that title, having claimed back-to-back trophies at Stade Roland Garros in 1954 and 1955.

    In 1955, Trabert had a year most players only dream of, capturing the Australian Open doubles crown with Vic Seixas, the French Open singles and doubles titles (the latter also with Seixas) and the Wimbledon and U.S. singles trophies. He was also a member of the U.S. Davis Cup team (1951-55) and compiled a 27-8 record in singles and doubles play. He was player-captain of the team (1953) and captain (1976-80), and his squads won Davis Cup championships in 1978 and 1979. The 14-3 record he compiled still stands as the most victories by a U.S. Davis Cup captain. He was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1970.

    Trabert was born Aug. 16, 1930 in Cincinnati and now lives in Pontre Vedra, Fla., with his wife, Vicki. He has four children.
