Playing since the 1970s, John McEnroe holds 17 Grand Slam titles under his belt! The youngest man ever to become the world's top player, from 1981 to 1984, he famously played against Borg in 1980, losing before coming back to beat him at Wimbledon the following year.
After winning his first titles at the tender age of 19 in 1989, Jim Courier won his first Grand Slam in 1991. Ranked number one in the world in 1992, he went on to play on two U.S. Davis Cup teams in 1992 and 1995 and obtain two more Grand Slam victories. He was ranked number one a whopping four times on the PowerShare Series, in 2000, 2008, 2009 and 2012.
A tennis pro since the early 2000s, Daniela Hantuchova has won 7 WTA Singles Titles and 9 WTA Doubles Titles. The 37th woman to reach 500 wins in the Open Era in 2013, she was a member of the 2002 Slovakian Fed Cup Championship Team, 2005 Championship Hopman Cup Team and 2012 Slovakian Olympic team.
At only 20 years old, Chris Evert won her first Grand Slam title in 1974 – and proceeded to win 17 more throughout her career.
