Martina Navratilova Booking Agency Profile

Call PFP Sports Talent Agency at 1.800.966.1380 if you would like to contact a Martina Navratilova booking agent for a speaking engagement, personal appearance, product endorsement or corporate event. Tennis great, Martina Navratilova was born born October 18, 1956, in Prague, Czechoslovakia. She is a former World No. 1 women's tennis player. Billie Jean King said about Navratilova in 2006, "She's the greatest singles, doubles and mixed doubles player who's ever lived." Tennis writer Steve Flink, in his book The Greatest Tennis Matches of the Twentieth Century, named her as the second best female player of the 20th century, directly behind Steffi Graf. Tennis magazine has selected her as the greatest female tennis player for the years 1965 through 2005. Tennis historian and journalist Bud Collins has called Navratilova, "Arguably, the greatest player of all time."

Navratilova won 18 Grand Slam singles titles, 31 Grand Slam women's doubles titles (an all-time record), and 10 Grand Slam mixed doubles titles. She reached the Wimbledon singles final 12 times, including 9 consecutive years from 1982 through 1990, and won the women's singles title at Wimbledon a record 9 times. She and King each won 20 Wimbledon titles, an all-time record. Navratilova is one of just three women to have accomplished a career Grand Slam in singles, women's doubles, and mixed doubles (called the Grand Slam "boxed set"). She holds the open era record for most singles titles (167) and doubles titles (177). She also recorded the longest winning streak in tennis history (74 consecutive matches) and three of the six longest winning streaks in women's tennis history. Navratilova, Margaret Court, and Maureen Connolly Brinker share the record for the most consecutive Grand Slam singles titles (six). Navratilova reached 11 consecutive Grand Slam singles finals, second all-time to Steffi Graf's 13. In women's doubles, Navratilova and Pam Shriver won 109 consecutive matches and won all four Grand Slam titles in 1984. They also tied Louise Brough Clapp's and Margaret Osborne duPont's record of 20 Grand Slam women's doubles titles as a team.

Originally from the former Czechoslovakia, she lost her citizenship when she defected to the United States in 1975 at the age of 18 and became a U.S. citizen in 1981. On January 9, 2008, she had her Czech citizenship restored. [5] She has stated that she has not renounced her American citizenship nor does she plan to do so and that the restoration of her Czech citizenship was not politically motivated.

The dominant women's tennis player of her time, Martina Navratilova won every Grand Slam singles title at least twice: Wimbledon (a record nine times), the Australian Open (three), the French Open (two) and the U.S. Open (four). Left-handed, sinewy and athletic, she helped bring a new era of power into the traditionally more finesse-minded women's game. Her many matches with former world #1 Chris Evert were particularly famous (with young Tracy Austin in the mix, 1979-81). Navratilova retired from professional tennis in 1994, but in 2000 returned to occasional action in mixed doubles and then women's doubles. By winning the mixed doubles title at the 2003 Australian Open (with Leander Paes of India) she became the first player since Margaret Court to win the singles, doubles and mixed doubles at all four grand slam tournaments.

Still competitive at nearly 50 years of age, Navratilova announced in 2006 that she would again retire after that year's U.S. Open. Martina Navratilova and Paes won mixed doubles at Wimbledon in 2003, giving her a total of 20 Wimbledon titles. The same win gave her 58 total career grand slam titles, second only to Court's 62. At age 46 years and eight months, Navratilova also became the oldest player of either sex ever to win a grand slam title. Navratilova won 167 singles titles during her professional career.
