The next year, she won three tournaments including the prestigious Tampa title. The same year, she was ranked World number 7. The coming years proved to be magical for the Spaniard as she won six titles in 1990 and 1991 including a silver medal at Olympics in women doubles.

Year 1995 was a special year for Martinez as she reached semi finals in four different Grand Slam tournaments, ending the year with World number 2 rank. The next year, she won Italian Open singles fourth time in a row, becoming the only player to do so in the history of the tournament.

She won her first German Open title in 2000 when she beat Martina Hingis in semifinals and scored an amazing win against Amanda in the finals. In 2004, she picked up another silver medal in Olympics. The next year she won Pattaya, Thailand for the first time to take her career total to 33 for top level singles titles.
