Martina Navratilova. Life and novels of the first racket of the world
Martina Navratilova has such a long list of lovers that any man will envy. According to unofficial data, about a hundred women were in her bed. They say that even Madonna herself happened to be there.
Navratilova became the first tennis player who did not hide her non-traditional orientation. Internet users say that her appearance is more like a man’s, and some even suggest that Martina may be a transgender.

The American then just started commenting and was famous for poor preparation for reports and opinions that were based on facts from parallel realities.
