MARTINA NAVRATILOVA, with her record 9 Wimbledon singles titles and 58 Grand Slam titles, is the best female tennis player of the modern era, and possibly the greatest in the history of the sport. In January 2003, she won the Australian Open mixed doubles title with Leander Paes, making her, at age 46, the oldest winner, male or female, of a Grand Slam title. She also won the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon in 2003, tying a record 20 Wimbledon titles held by Billie Jean King.From Publishers Weekly:
Tennis legend Navratilova has won 20 Wimbledon titles and 58 Grand Slam titles, and at age 46, became the oldest Grand Slam winner ever. Now 49, she competes in tennis matches, skis, and plays hockey and basketball. It's no surprise, then, that she's always being asked, "How do you stay in such good shape? What's your secret?" The answers lie in a food and fitness plan that explores six areas of mind and body fitness, from thinking like an athlete (dream big, set high goals, push yourself, bounce back from defeat) to choosing organic foods (Navratilova is enamored of juicing; she provides recipes for fruit-and-vegetable drinks and meals in a 28-day plan). The book's exercise section includes photos of the author demonstrating workout moves and a list of "exercise toys" that keep fitness routines fun. It's fascinating (and motivating) to get the inside scoop on how an elite athlete trains—and struggles like the rest of us. Navratilova's coaching approach, characterized by supportive, encouraging exhortations ("Look at ability, not age" and "You are the benchmark of your own success"), will give struggling readers encouragement.
