Greatness: It’s all just a state of mind

If only every athlete were this brutally honest.

I asked Martina Navratilova: “How do you rank yourself against the all-time greatest of women’s tennis?”

She said, “I know I’m one of the top three women athletes of all time. And I’m the greatest tennis player who ever played the game. When you’re up there with an elite group of people, that’s good enough. But I probably was the greatest. I know my best was better than anybody else’s.”

Brutally honest … and correct.

Navratilova is coming to River Oaks Country Club April 5 for an exhibition match against Monica Seles. For ticket information, call 713-874-6333.
