Martina Navratilova: Won 18 Grand Slam singles tennis titles, 31 major women's doubles titles (an all-time record), and 10 major mixed doubles titles. She reached the Wimbledon singles final 12 times, including nine consecutive years between 1982 and 1990, and won the women's singles title at Wimbledon a record nine times.
