Hana Mandlikova

Hana reached a career high singles ranking of number 3 in April 1984. During her professional career Hana was ranked in the world top 50 for 12 consecutive seasons (1978–89), including seven in the top 10. She led Czechoslovakia to three consecutive Fed Cup titles from 1983–1985, and was only the third woman to win grand slam titles on grass, clay, and hard courts, joining Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. She defeated both Evert and Navratilova on consecutive days to accomplish this feat at the 1985 US Open. She retired in 1990, and went on to coach the late Jana Novotná to the 1998 Wimbledon singles title and a career high ranking of number 2. She also served as the Czech Republic’s Olympic and Fed Cup coach until 1996.
