Martina Navratilova's titles title quite safe
By Lizzie Haldane
Between the two of them, Martina Navratilova and Serena Williams are the proud owners of 214 singles titles and (Serena hopes) counting.
On Jan. 14, 1985, Martina Navratilova won her 100th tournament, becoming the second woman -- after Chris Evert -- to accomplish the feat. Navratilova concluded her record-breaking career with 167 singles titles; Evert piled up 157 trophies. The only other player to reach that 100-win milestone is Steffi Graf, who has 107. Serena Williams, with 47, has the most among active players. She leads her sister Venus by three. They are both trying to add to their totals in a major way over the next two weeks in Australia.
