Tennis Podcast: Martina Navratilova – the greatest Wimbledon champion

Not Pete Sampras, not Bjorn Borg, not Serena Williams, Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic. The greatest Wimbledon champion was Martina Navratilova. 

Nine singles titles, more than any of her Open era contemporaries, and 20 in all when accounting for doubles and mixed doubles crowns.

In the first of 14 daily editions of Wimbledon Re-Lived from The Tennis Podcast, Catherine Whitaker, David Law and Matt Roberts chart Navratilova’s incredible journey from title number one against Chris Evert in 1978, to her ninth over Zina Garrison in 1990.
