It was 1999

THE FUTURE IS NOW: Steffi Graf was already 21 Grand Slam singles titles into her Hall of Fame career. The German would add her then-Open Era-best 22nd and final only months later at Roland Garros. Serena Williams, meanwhile, had yet to chart her first. However, Graf would get an up-close-and-personal glimpse of the future in the 1999 Indian Wells final, as the 17-year-old Williams outpunched her veteran opponent in three thrilling sets, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5, erasing a 4-2 third-set deficit in the process. Little did we know then that Serena would one day catch and surpass Graf’s major trophy count.
