Famous quotes containing the word navratilova:

    I know some of my self-worth comes from tennis, and it’s hard to think of doing something else where you know you’ll never be the best. Tennis players are rare creatures: where else in the world can you know that you’re the best? The definitiveness of it is the beauty of it, but it’s not all there is to life and I’m ready to explore the alternatives.
    —Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)

    I’ve been in the twilight of my career longer than most people have had their career.
    —Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)

    ...I’m not money hungry.... People who are rich want to be richer, but what’s the difference? You can’t take it with you. The toys get different, that’s all. The rich guys buy a football team, the poor guys buy a football. It’s all relative.
    —Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)
