Watch the moment Martina Navratilova received a standing ovation from the Wimbledon crowd as she began her final singles campaign in 1994.
"What about this. I have never seen anything like it," said BBC commentator John Barrett. "I have been coming every year since the second world war. Just listen to this."
Her first-round opponent that day was Great Britain’s Claire Taylor, who has been speaking to BBC Sport about the day she played the nine-times ladies' champion on Centre Court.
