It's Time Sep 10: "It's time. It's enough. I just want to move on to my next life. ...Most of all, it's to spend more time at home," said Martina Navratilova, 50, while announcing her retirement from the Tour. Navratilova originally retired in 1994, having spent 331 weeks ranked No. 1. She returned to the Tour as a doubles player in 2000, and eventually couldn't resist dabbling in singles, including a first-round victory at Wimbledon in 2004. Her medals tally -- a mindboggling 168 Tour singles titles and 177 Tour doubles crowns. Of these 58 are Grand Slam titles -- 18 in singles, 31 in doubles and nine in mixed doubles.
