Trabert's record in 1955 was one of the greatest ever by an American tennis player. He won the three most prestigious tournaments in amateur tennis - the French, Wimbledon, and American championships - en route to being ranked World No. 1 among the amateurs for that year. Only Grand Slam winners Don Budge and Rod Laver have ever achieved the same feat. Trabert's own chance at a Grand Slam was stopped with a loss in the semi-finals at the Australian championships. Trabert won 18 tournaments in 1955, compiling a match record of 106 wins to 7 losses.Trabert was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island in 1970.
