Does Steffie Graf hold the honor of the greatest athletic accomplishment in our time?

In 1988 Steffie Graf won the US, FRENCH, AND AUSTRALIAN Opens, Wimbeldon, and a gold medal in the Olympics. Can you think of anyone who has had a greater accomplishment.

    Steffi Graf has to be reigning queen of the tennis court. But your question is difficult to answer since you are asking if there is a "greater" feat than what Steffi accomplished because this would have to involve all sporting events. I'm reminded of Michael Phelps who captured 8 gold medals in 2008 in Beijing breaking the record held by Mark Spitz since 1972 [7 gold medals]

    Both Steffi and Michael should probably share the honors.
