Keynote Speaker Martina Navratilova
Martina Navratilova, tennis player extraordinaire, who took women's tennis to a new level with her speed, determination, and agility. She won the Wimbledon women's singles title a record 9 times and has been described by many as "the greatest singles, doubles, and mixed doubles player who's ever lived".
In all, Martina has won 18 Grand Slam singles titles, 31 Grand Slam women's doubles titles (an all-time record), and 10 Grand Slam mixed doubles titles.
The same determination which helped bring her such remarkable achievements on court has most recently helped her through her latest battle, against breast cancer, diagnosed earlier last year. She had an operation to remove cancerous tissue and two weeks later took part in a triathlon.
Martina has been described as honest, feisty, self-deprecating, courageous, and controversial. She's always told it from the heart, never flinching from an unpopular comment or cause if she believes it to be right.
