Navratilova=rude/Why didn't ASV present the trophy?

Martina Navratilova is rude. Who noticed her joking around with Henin while the Belgian national anthem was playing. Martina needs to realize she is no longer in the spotlight and learn to share it, at least.

Martina won twice.

Arantxa dominated. Why has ASV not presented that freaking Lenglen trophy yet, let alone this year? Do people not understand "living legend"?

I Will Always Love You Arantxa!!!!

Um, no, sorry, anyone who beats Chris "Frickin' Queen of Clay" Evert 6-2 6-0 (Amelia Island '84), 6-3 6-1 (Roland Garros '84), and 6-2 6-2 (Roland Garros '87) on clay, and wins the French title twice in six final appearances (denied only by seven-time champ, Evert, and six-time champ, Graf) is a bloody all-time great on clay, no matter what you think.

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)

Oh, get over it please. What was wrong with her joking around? I don't even like the woman that much. I must say she looked very good today.

Maybe the bonds between ASV and Kuznetsova are too close to make her a neutral person to give out the trophy in this final, just a guess

Martina & Sveta are close too, remember US Open 2004 + they played doubles together


anyway, i don't think any belgian was offended by what Martina did during the national anthem, so no need to complain about that
