Martina Navratilova is one of the greatest tennis players in history. With 18 singles, 31 doubles and 10 mixed doubles major championships, her grand slam championship total of 59 makes her the winningest major champion in American history, male or female, and second overall worldwide. Major championships consist of tennis’s four major tournaments which are the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
Few have contributed as much to the sport of tennis as Ms. Navratilova. Last week, during the IWC Schaffhausen watch event on South Beach, we had a chance to catch up with the tennis legend about what is going on in her life and how often she is now getting out onto the court.
In 2004, Lenox Lewis retired from boxing as the undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World. With a record of 41 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw, Lewis has one of the greatest resumes in the history of boxing’s heavyweight ranks.
Today, the pugilist lives in Miami Beach, Florida with his family. Last week during Art Basel at the IWC Schaffhausen watch event on South Beach, we had a chance to speak with the former champ about what he is up to today, as well as getting his thoughts on the state of boxing.
Arguably the biggest week of the year in Miami Beach, Art Basel brings together dozens of celebrities and the mega rich for exclusive and private invitation only parties. The festivities include many exhibits of art as well as the show casing of luxury goods. Wednesday night featured the IWC Schaffhausen watch event at the W Hotel on Collins Avenue. The evening was hosted by actor Jason Alexander of Seinfeld fame. See our photo above.
Stars in attendance included actress Emily Blunt, Victoria Secret model Adriana Lima, former Heavyweight Champion of the World, boxer Lenox Lewis, tennis legend Martina Navratilova, singer Solange Knowles, actor James Marsden and numerous others. The gala marked the launch of the new Portofino Midsize watch collection.
