Tennis Player
    (February 23, 1965- )
    Born in Prague, Czech Republic
    Highest ranking: #4 in 1985
    Two-time finalist at the US Open (1986,1993) and Australian Open (1984,1989)
    In doubles, won four Wimbledons (1987,1989-90,1996), two US Opens (1985,1993), two Australian Opens (1990,1992) and one French Open (1990)
    In mixed doubles, won three Wimbledons (1994,1996-97), one US Open (1993) and one French Open (1991)

    She reportedly blamed Martina Navratilova's defection for contributing to the death of her mother, Vera (who had been Martina's coach in Czechoslovakia).
    Due to her size (6'2), she did not move very well on the court.
    Eight years after her retirement, she was given a wild card berth in the Wimbledon mixed doubles, and lost in the first round (2006).
    She has been called the best player to never win a Grand Slam singles title.
    At the 1984 Australian Open, she ended Navratilova's 74-match winning streak and her chance at a calendar-year Grand Slam.
    She was named the WTA's Most Improved Player (1985).
    After her tennis career, she earned a PhD in psychology.
