Former Wimbledon champion Jana Novotna has died at the age of 49. A statement from the WTA said Novotna, who had cancer, passed away peacefully on Sunday surrounded by her family. One of the leading players of the 1990s, Novotna famously broke her grand slam singles duck at Wimbledon in 1998, her win over Nathalie Tauziat a particularly popular one given the emotional scenes that had followed the Czech’s loss to Steffi Graf in the 1993 final.
