Martina Navratilova is one of the celebrity contestants on Season 14 of ABC's ballroom competition series "Dancing with the Stars" in spring 2012. She teams with Tony Dovolani, who returns for his 13th season.

A champion both on and off the court, Martina Navratilova is an influential athlete and cultural figure. Born in Prague in 1956, she is the most dominant tennis player ever to set foot on the court. She is the only player in history to win Grand Slam titles in four different decades, including a curtain-closing U.S. Open victory in mixed-doubles at age 49. Her resume is highlighted by 59 Grand Slam titles, a record 9 Wimbledon singles championships, and an unrivaled 344 tournament victories.

Off the court Navratilova has been a lifelong champion for individual freedom and a pioneer for human rights. At age 18 she left communist Czechoslovakia and sought political asylum and freedom in the United States. After receiving her U.S. citizenship in 1981, she publicly acknowledged that she is gay — at a time when such announcements came at great personal cost to public figures.

In 2010 Navratilova was diagnosed with breast cancer. She approached breast cancer like her tennis training, subsequently becoming cancer free and a champion for breast cancer awareness. She is currently the Fitness Ambassador for AARP, inspiring its 39 million members to follow her example by redefining what it means to be 50+.

Navratilova is an accomplished author and speaker and is an on-air commentator for the Tennis Channel.
