The Czech-born was one of the most acclaimed tennis players in history, Martina Navratilova has accumulated a total of nine Wimbledon titles, and 59 Grand Slams and held her spot as No. 1 on the world rankings for 332 weeks! Such immense success led to her induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2000 — an honor that few have attained. In recent times, she has shifted gears towards television by serving as a tennis analyst across various networks.

On Monday, the iconic tennis star announced that she had been diagnosed with both throat and breast cancer after noticing a lump on her neck two months prior. She soon got tested and discovered that it was early-stage throat cancer. While in the process of examining her throat further, an unrelated form of breast cancer was revealed as well.

“This double whammy is serious but still fixable, and I’m hoping for a favorable outcome,” Navratilova said. “It’s going to stink for a while but I’ll fight with all have I got.”

In 2010, her life was forever changed when she received a diagnosis of breast cancer. In order to effectively combat the illness, she underwent surgery and radiation therapy to remove all traces of the disease.

She is scheduled to begin her treatment later this month.
