I came to America because I wanted to play Tennis for the US. Some say I am the greatest Singles, Doubles and mixed Doubles player Who has ever lived.
My port of entry into America was to Florida. I had a tennis championship there in 1973 at the age of 16.
Martina Navratilova is the best singles and doubles player ever! I like to play tennis.
I was told by the Czechoslovakian Sports Federation that I was becoming too Americanized and that I should go back to school and make tennis secondary …… I thought that was ridiculous and stayed playing tennis in America.
I'm not any religion. I don't know if my mother is Catholic or not. But I believe in the existence of a higher power. I believe there is one big God out there. I don't go to church. It's how you behave in life, not whether you go to church and pray, that makes you a worthy human being.
The Americans Love me ! The U.S asked me to play in there Association when I was only 16 years old. I wasnt really known there until I was 18 turning professional in Tennis.
