Todd Woodbridge teamed up with Mark Woodforde to form one of the most successful double's team in the history of tennis, winning 11 Grand Slam doubles titles and five straight Wimbledon titles. The team also took home an Olympic gold medal at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia. From 1996 to 1997, the “Woodies” came within one match of holding all four major doubles titles, winning the Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open trophies before falling in the 1997 French Open final.
Woodforde retired shortly after the pair won a silver medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics (they’d already completed their Grand Slam set with the Roland Garros title) and Woodbridge began a successful partnership with Sweden’s Jonas Bjorkman, leading to another five major titles. Woodbridge was also a part of two Davis Cup winning teams in 1999 and 2003 before retiring in 2005. While finishing with a world record 83 doubles titles, he also proved to be an adept singles player. At his peak, Woodbridge was ranked 19 in the world in May 1997.
