PRO BOWLERS

Hall of Fame bowler Aleta Sill is the only bowler in history to win the career Triple Crown twice. The women's Triple Crown consisted of the U.S. Open, WIBC (now USBC) Queens, and the Sam's Town Invitational. In 1999, Sill also became the first woman to crack the $1 million mark in career earnings on the women's pro bowling tour.

A million dollars in prize money is impressive, but when it's spread across 21 years on tour, you learn to temper your splurges.

It’s not that Navratilova doesn’t have competitors in King, Helen Wills, Margaret Court, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, and Serena Williams, but statistically she’s off the charts.
