Last Time Both Champions Repeated?

This year Justine and Nadal defended their Roland Garros Championship - when was the last time this happened at the slams?

Graf and Sampras, I assume, at '95 and '96 US Open?

The last time two champions repeated at a Slam: Sampras and Graf (US Open 1996)
The last time both French Open champions defended their title: Courier and Seles (French Open 1992)

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
