Martina Navrátilová is the greatest woman tennis players of all time. The winner of 18 grand Slam Titles, she reached the Wimbledon singles final 12 times, including for nine consecutive years from 1982 through 1990, and won the women's singles title at Wimbledon a record nine times.
She has written that “It was "cheating" to allow transgender women to compete in women's sport as they had unfair physical advantages.”
“Athlete Ally, an LGBT athletic group, removed her from their advisory board and have publicly disassociated from her. Rachel McKinnon, who last year became the first transgender woman to win a world track cycling title, called the comments ‘disturbing, upsetting and deeply transphobic’.”
Navrátilová lives as a lesbian – even when it wasn’t socially acceptable to be one in 1981. However, she has repeatedly voiced her complaint on male sportsmen trying to complete with women. She also added "It's insane and it's cheating.”
