Martina Navratilova’s remarkable comeback to tennis reached a climax in November 2003 when she was selected to represent the United States in the Federation Cup, becoming the oldest player ever, at 47, to compete in the event. It was a wonderful end to a magnificent year for Navratilova.
Her victory in the Wimbledon mixed doubles in 2003 at 46years and 261days equalled one record and set another. She tied Billie Jean King’s record of 20 Wimbledon titles and became the oldest winner of a Grand Slam event. Her remarkable Wimbledon triumph was her 58th Grand Slam title.
