Climbing to No. 1 in the world doubles rankings, Grabb won the French Open and was a finalist at Wimbledon. He was a first-team All-American at Stanford, captain of the 1986 NCAA championship team, and later a Davis Cup regular. Grabb did not win a state championship at Tucson, choosing to move to Scottsdale to train with a tennis instructor after his junior year.
