Navratilova won the Wimbledon women's single title nine times, six of those consecutively. But that's just a small subset of the 167 singles titles she won in her extraordinary career! No wonder "Tennis" magazine named her the greatest female player of her era.

Unfortunately, the marriage ended in 1975. But Fikotova and Connolly passed their athletic genes down to their kids: one of their sons was an accomplished decathlete and one of their daughters was a member of the U.S. national volleyball team!

4. In 1906, Maruska Chytilová married a Czech artist who had made a name for himself painting theatre posters, advertisements and fine art in Paris. Who was this master of Art Nouveau?

While in Paris, Mucha had been commissioned by the great actress Sarah Bernhardt to paint many of her theatre posters.
