She recently announced that she would play fellow former world No. 1 star Steffi Graf in an exhibition match at Wimbledon's venerable All England Club on May 17. It will be part of a series a matches, which will also feature Andre Agassi and Tim Henman, that day to test out the conditions under the new retractable roof on the famed Centre Court.
The popular star, who once held the No. 1 singles ranking for 19 weeks, has won 34 titles on the WTA Tour and appeared in five Grand Slam finals, going 1-4. She also owns two major doubles championships.
