Nine-time winner of Wimbledon Martina Navratilova, who also previously suffered from cancer, has paid tribute to Elena Baltacha, saying she fought "to the end" but "sometimes cancer wins".
She said: "Elena Baltacha was a great fighter on the tennis court.
"We as tennis players always worry about our bodies, trying to keep injuries at bay. But cancer - you can't prevent that and you can't rehab it either and no matter how much of a fighter you are, sometimes cancer wins.
"Elena was taken from the world much too soon - fighting to the end and we will miss her."
