One of Australia's most successful tennis icons
A former World No. 1 doubles player, Mark Woodforde has made a name for himself within Australian tennis history with a total of 17 Grand Slam titles.
With career wins around the world, Mark became Australia’s top ranked singles player in 1996, holding four ATP tour wins in Auckland, Adelaide (twice) and the US Pro Championships in Philadelphia. In 1996, Mark also reached the Australian Open semi-finals, and would even go on to compete in the Grand Slam Cup.
Partnering with Todd Woodbridge in doubles tennis, Mark formed the most successful duo in tennis history.
Known as “The Woodies”, both Mark and Todd would go on to score 11 Grand Slam titles and an Olympic Gold. They hold the record for the most titles won in Professional Tennis, an achievement secured in 2000 with their win at The French Open. Having over 60 titles under their belt, Mark and Todd have placed themselves on equal footing with other doubles tennis legends like John McEnroe & Peter Fleming and Bob Hewitt & Frew McMillan.
