Stefanie Graf has represented Adidas, the premier brand manufacturer of sports equipment, for more than 20 years. Throughout her record-setting athletic career and beyond, Adidas has been a steady companion. These two partners are premiere ambassadors of German sports. In 2008, Stefanie was awarded with the Golden Sports Pyramid, the highest distinction of the German Sports Fund in Herzogenaurach by Adidas chairman Herbert Hainer.
Stefanie Graf is the one player in tennis history to have achieved the Golden Slam—winning the Olympic Gold Medal, Wimbledon, the French Open, the U.S. Open, the Australian Open in the same year. And she won them all wearing Adidas. Stefanie has been ranked the No.1 female player in the world for a record 377 total weeks—a feat unsurpassed by any player, male or female, in the history of tennis rankings. And in December 1999, a panel of experts assembled by the Associated Press named her the greatest female tennis player of the 20th century.
Adidas also participates in Stefanie’s social commitments by sponsoring the foundation Children for Tomorrow. It also has lent support to special events such as the Festival for Children in Mannheim or Kicking for Peace in South Africa.
