Silver Challenge Trophy aloft later this afternoon?
Ten years ago the spotlight fell on Billie Jean King as she won a sixth Wimbledon singles title. Martina Navratilova can equal that feat today, and go one better. Even the legendary Billie Jean King did not manage four in a row! She did in the Ladies' Doubles, but guess what? Martina, with Pam Shriver , aims at that target this year.
John McEnroe and Peter Fleming have a mere three in a row in their sights!
