1985: Tennis great Martina Navratilova wins her 100th career singles title by defeating Bulgaria's Manuela Maleeva in the Virginia Slims of Washington tournament, joining Jimmy Connors and Chris Evert Lloyd as the only professional tennis players at the time to have reached that same milestone. Navratilova would end her career with 167 career singles titles, the most ever by any professional tennis player. Besides Navratilova, Connors and Evert, the only other tennis player to have reached the 100-win milestone is Steffi Graf, who won 107 singles titles in a career from 1982 to 1999.
