    My vote is for Navratilova. She took longer to mature, but her longevity and consistency was amazing. And as others have said, Martina did play pretty well into the dawn of women's power tennis.

    I think the guts, and skill, she showed in coming back to play mixed doubles in her late 40's was simply remarkable. While her serve did not quite have the old speed and "pop" in it, her volleying was still unreal....the girls of today could learn a lot watching her at net. It is just a lost art...
