Garbiñe Muguruza learned from example that hard work and sacrifice will have their reward. When she was five years old, her parents moved from Venezuela for Spain to help fulfil her tennis potential. That selfless decision is now reaping dividends, with Muguruza joining the game’s elite ranks. In 2016, she claimed her first Grand Slam® singles title at the French Open, followed by her second Grand Slam® title at The Championships, Wimbledon in 2017.

Rod Laver

One of the greatest tennis players, Rod Laver twice won all four Grand Slam® titles in a calendar year, the only man to have done so in the Open Era. The modest left-hander won 11 Grand Slam® titles in total. In 2000 the Melbourne Park venue that hosts the Australian Open finals was renamed the Rod Laver Arena, a fitting tribute to the man who inspired many of today’s champions.
