Martina Navratilova at the age of 49 finally says goodbye for the last time to wimbeldon. She was seeking to win her 21st career win in this turf. Navratilova, who turns 50 in October, came out looking fired-up after her defeat in the women’s doubles but could not produce the win her fans wanted. The nine-times singles champion equalled the Wimbledon titles record set by Billy Jean King when she teamed up with Leander Paes to win the mixed doubles three years ago.
Her Wimbledon haul comprises nine singles, seven doubles and four mixed doubles titles. “Martina leaves an extraordinary legacy to the game – 167 singles titles, 174 doubles titles, 20 titles at Wimbledon including nine singles – her numbers will go down in history as the greatest ever,” Shriver told BBC Sport. “Nobody will ever surpass some of the things that she’s done.” We wish her all the best for her future and hope to see her return to this game in some role let it be coach commentator or analyst.
