"After a long battle with cancer, Jana died peacefully, surrounded by her family in her native Czech Republic, aged 49". But it was the highlight of her singles career that came to define her.
The Czech star collected a total of 17 Grand Slams, including 12 in doubles and four in mixed-doubles events. After Novotna's death following a long fight with cancer, Wimbledon, the tournament where she really made her name in both defeat and victory, paid tribute to her as "a true champion in all senses of the word".
Her serve-and-volley game was a rarity among women, and helped make her a formidable doubles player. "She said that she was very happy that I had finally won this championship". The failure was all too much for the then 24-year-old Novotna to take.
She also played twice in the semi-finals of the French Open and US Open.
Jana was a celebrated tennis star and was once ranked WTA World number 1 in doubles and number 2 in singles.
"Jana was an inspiration both on and off the court to anyone who had the opportunity to know her", said Steve Simon, the W.T.A.'s chief executive.
