If anyone is looking for one of the greatest champions of all time, I recommend looking up Martina Navratilova. Martina holds 9 Wimbledon singles championships and over 167 titles overall. That’s more than any male or female player in any sport. Her impressive claim on championships is only half of what make this woman such an amazing athlete.
Her journey to the US was a result of the oppression women athlete’s felt from the Czech Republic in the 1970’s. The US was lucky to receive and nurture such an incredible player. As her career took off in the states, she never looked back.
I respect her training routine the most. In the early years I saw her struggle with her weight, but as she recognized that tennis was her life, she made fitness and health a priority. It definitely paid off. Today we recognize her as one of the greatest women’s tennis players and athletes of all time.
