Martina Navratilova

Martina Navratilova, tennis player extraordinaire, took women's tennis to a new level with her speed, determination and agility. She won the Wimbledon women's singles title a record nine times and has been described by many as "the greatest singles, doubles, and mixed doubles player who's ever lived". In all, Martina has won 18 Grand Slam singles titles, 31 Grand Slam women's doubles titles (an all-time record), and 10 Grand Slam mixed doubles titles; in total she has won 59 Grand Slam titles. She still plays at all the Grand Slams where she takes part in the legends doubles.

Martina has been described as honest, feisty, self-deprecating, courageous, controversial and a Rennaisance woman. She's always told it from the heart, never flinching from an unpopular comment or cause if she believes it to be right. She is a global icon for lesbian and gay rights and is, as she describes it herself, a citizen of the world. In 2014 Martina married her long-time partner Julia Lemigova. They live in Miami with their two daughters and many animals.

Charity Work
When not playing tennis, Martina is involved with various charities that benefit animal rights, underprivileged children, LGBT rights and the environment.

Books
In 2006, she wrote 'Shape Your Self' - a guide to health and fitness. In 1985 Martina released an autobiography, co-written with New York Times sports columnist George Vecsey, titled 'Martina' in the US and 'Being Myself' in the rest of the world. In 1982 she has also co-written a tennis instruction book with Mary Carillo titled 'Tennis My Way'. She later co-wrote three mystery novels with Liz Nick-les: 'The Total Zone' (1994); 'Breaking point' (1996); and 'Killer Instinct' (1997).
