Martina Navratilova reacts to fan claiming she’s real

Former 18-time Grand Slam champion Martina Navratilova doesn't want to call herself the GOAT or anything like

let me introduce you to someone named Martina Navratilova, the real GOAT:

doubles slams: 31 vs 14 (121% more!)singles titles: 167 vs 73 (128% more!!)doubles titles: 177 vs 23 (670% more!!!) — प्रोग्रामर (@polyglotme) August 19, 2022

I think it is human nature to think what we have now is the best, period

But thank you in any case:),” Navratilova wrote in response

If Alcaraz were born 50 years earlier, he would not have played the same way he plays now

But thank you in any case:) — Martina Navratilova (@Martina) September 19, 2022

Before Williams' final tournament, ESPN sports analyst Chris "Mad Dog" Ruso explained why it's Navratilova that deserves

Remember, Martina lost eight Grand Slam finals to all-time great players, she lost two to Graf, one

You want to put her number 1? You can debate it and no problem," Russo said

One of Williams' biggest goals was to finish her career with the all-time Grand Slam record

Williams, who captured her 23rd Grand Slam in 2017, lost her last four Grand Slam finals
