Her record as No.1 in singles (1982–86) remains the most dominant in professional tennis to date.
Over five consecutive seasons, she won 428 out of 442 singles matches, averaging fewer than 3 losses per year to 87 wins, for a sustained winning percentage of 96.8%.
I said: 'I can't imagine living without her.' Then we had a conversation about whether they liked Martina being around and my daughter said: 'I want her to live with us, too'." Language is another fascinating issue in this marriage.While the couple speak to each other in English (Lemigova said they did try to speak in Czech and Russian, but that didn't work), the girls communicate with each other in French.Interestingly, the girls speak to Navratilova in English and to Lemigova in Russian.Superficially, it’s hard to connect Ms Lemigova with such a grubby world.Fresh-faced, slim and elegant, she has just spent the summer flitting between her grand Paris apartment near the Arc de Triomphe and Monte Carlo, Cannes, St Tropez, Ibiza and Majorca — not to mention regular trips to Florida, where Navratilova has a mansion in the wealthy Miami suburb of Coconut Grove.(Two ex-girlfriends — Toni Layton and former Miss Texas Judy Nelson — went to court and won multi-million-dollar settlements from her after making claims to a large share of her fortune.)For Ms Lemigova not only had a baby son who died in suspicious circumstances, but she has been fighting for years to discover whether the tragedy is linked to the child’s powerful father, who also died in murky circumstances.
