Steffi Graf's fearsome forehand helped her win 22 career Grand Slam titles, second only to Margaret Court.

The blockbuster “Jaws” was released on this date in 1975, and it soon became the highest-grossing film in history at that time, making around $471 million at the box office. Several sports stars who are known by the scary nickname have cashed in as well, including former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski, competitive eater Joey Chestnut and skateboarder Aaron Homoki (although his nickname comes from wearing braces). Steffi Graf's biting forehand was known as “Jaws,” as is a Maui beach that attracts daring surfers to its ferocious waves.
