Czech-born Navratilova is one of the most legendary players in the history of tennis. She holds a staggering 168 singles titles—more than any other player, male or female. In 1990, she won her ninth Wimbledon singles title, a success she admits was the only record she ever went after. She was recently active in this year’s French Open, rallying off-court as an on-air anchor for Tennis Channel. A spry 50, she’s often bombarded by questions like, “How do you still do it?” She finally came out with a book this year, Shape Your Self, which shares secrets to her health and fitness. “There’s no quick fix or easy way out,” she warns. As an openly gay athlete, Navratilova contributed to the community by founding the Rainbow Charity in 1995, which has given 2 million dollars to the LGBT community. –TP
