Navratilova to play Amelia Island SINGLES

Martina Navratilova to play singles at Bausch & Lomb tennis tournament


Canadian Press

Friday, April 02, 2004


AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. (AP) - Martina Navratilova will play singles at age 47 at the Bausch & Lomb championship next week, the first time she has played a tournament-sponsored singles match in the United States since 1994.

She will accept a wild-card invitation to the event that starts Monday, tournament officials said Thursday. Her last singles match in a U.S. tournament was the Virginia Slims championship, which she lost to Gabriela Sabatini.

Navratilova is competing in the Nasdaq-100 Open in Key Biscayne with doubles partner Lisa Raymond.

Navratilova became the oldest woman to play in a WTA-sanctioned event when she competed at Eastbourne in 2002 at 45 years eight months. She turns 48 in October.

The No. 1 player in the world seven times, Navratilova holds 167 singles titles, more than any man or woman. She has won 18 Grand Slam singles titles and 37 Grand Slam doubles titles.

Navratilova won the Bausch & Lomb singles title in 1980, 1984 and 1988.
