CNN Open Court: Happy 25th, Arantxa
Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario

PARIS, France - She's one of the all-time greats - three French Opens, a US Open, World No.1, even World No.1 in doubles - and Roland Garros is where it all began. In 1989 a 17-year-old Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario took the tennis world by storm, winning her first Grand Slam title on the terre battue, pulling off an epic victory over Steffi Graf in the final to complete a dream fortnight in Paris.

CNN Open Court caught up with Sánchez-Vicario - as well as Michael Chang, who won it the same year - on the 25th anniversary of their Parisian triumphs. Watch the video right here on wtatennis.com!
