Grand Slam titles:
18 (Wimbledon 1978, 1979, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1990; Australian Open 1981, 1983, 1985; French Open 1982, 1984; U.S. Open 1983, 1984, 1986, 1987)



Seed:
Unseeded (Wild-card)



Record at the French Open: 1994-first round, 1988-fourth round, 1987-runner-up, 1986-runner-up, 1985-runner-up, 1984-winner, 1983-fourth round, 1982-winner, 1981-quarter-final, 1975-runner-up, 1974-quarter-final, 1973-quarter-final


With 167 tour and 18 grand slam singles titles to her name, Navratilova makes an emotional return to grand slam singles action for the first time in 10 years as a wild-card entrant.

Lost the two singles matches she played this year on the tour and has virtually no chance of adding to her two French Open titles, the last of which was 20 years ago.

Her mere presence in the draw, though, will prove an enormous crowd-puller and her first-round opponent will probably never have felt so unpopular in her life.
