sportsillustrated This is the first in a series of videos called Sports Illustrated Originals. Sports Illustrated Originals is a look back through the archives using original film and text from the magazine. As Serena Williams prepares for the U.S. Open, Sports Illustrated looks back on the last player to sweep all four tennis majors. As a 19-year-old, Steffi Graf dominated the season to complete the Grand Slam and was featured on the September 19, 1988 cover. #sportsillustrated #sioriginals #sipicturecollection 1d

sportsillustrated It could be the preseason, it could be the Super Bowl—football boils down to one-on-one combat, may the strongest man win. On this play it was Jets cornerback Javier Arenas: He stopped Falcons fullback Patrick DiMarco a yard short of the end zone at MetLife Stadium last Friday. Atlanta put the ball in the end zone on the next play, but it was the Jets who won the game, 30–22.

sportsillustrated Blue sky and hot sand would seem to be enough for a successful volleyball event, but the World Series of Beach Volleyball also drew some of the world’s best players—including Phil Dalhausser (serving) of the U.S.—to Long Beach, Calif., last weekend. When it was over, Brazilian teams had swept both the men’s and women’s gold medals. Photograph by Robert Beck #sportsillustrated #beachvolleyball #asicsworldseries @phildalhausser @shoot802 2d

sportsillustrated Photographer David E. Klutho got down and dirty to capture these arresting images from the 36th Annual Mississippi Mud Volleyball Tournament in Hannibal, Mo. The three-day event hosts 64 teams, with an equal number of males and females on each team, and with no more than eight players per team.
