CELEBRATING 60TH BIRTHDAY


“You never regret new experiences, only the ones you missed.” ~Martina Navrátilová
 
Surviving breast cancer, Martina has continued to live her life to the fullest. The tennis legend with a record 167 singles and 177 doubles championships will turn 60 this October and remains to be the oldest winner of a grand slam title, male or female. She won a record nine Wimbledons, including six consecutively. Still, Martina credits her childhood in former Czechoslovakia where she saw women having families, jobs and playing sports with an innate sense that sports are good for you as well as fun. Her mother played volleyball and tennis and Martina learned to love and play a variety of sports, which continues to help her fitness. Martina now fights childhood obesity in America by promoting physical activity and good eating habits. She emphasizes that girls who play sports have higher self-esteem and excel in school. She also works with various charities benefiting underprivileged children.
