Navratilova hits the media merry-go-round with Out + Oprah

Martina Navratilova made the list of the 50 most influential gay people in Out magazine's 2nd annual Power Issue coming in at #46. Here's what the mag had to say about Martina:
The former tennis pro was the 2007 GLAAD Media Awards Special Honoree, in part for the creation of her Rainbow Card credit card, which has raised more than $2 million for LGBT nonprofit organizations. Navratilova also serves as AARP’s health and fitness ambassador and was signed as the Tennis Channel’s primary commentator for all Grand Slam tournaments in 2008. But she still finds the time to play international exhibition matches against other past tennis champs.
Additionally, the 18-time Grand Slam champion will be appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show today with fellow tennis legend Chris Evert to discuss their long-standing friendship. Greg Hernandez over at Out in Hollywood has the story and two clips of their most memorable clashes.
