Martina won't be playing singles. The wild cards have gone to Anne Keothavong, Katie O'Brien, Sarah Borwell, Melanie South, Alicia Molik & Agnieszka Radwanska so far, leaving one for the paly off winner and one more to be announced.

Thanks God she won't...it was just a distracting spectacle last time she did it.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

I'v seen her live in Den Bosch against Schaul in singles an sorry but it was pathetic :retard:
Serve and volley but volley was somewhere around service line becouse she was so slow in her run to the net...

Agnieszka Radwanska top 3 player

why are people getting offended? you're only in denial if you think a 50 year old woman can still have success in singles she is just too old to be as good as she was.

well, you are only in denial if you think that about 80 other players in the main draw can have a success... yet nobody posts that "it is just a distracting spectacle last time" when they play

Not everyone has to love every American player to ever play the game in history...

I think it's simply a spectacle...she always loses and it takes away from a player who could have a chance to play at Wimbledon and hopefully get experience and confidence to build on. I think it's great that she's playing doubles because she can compete but singles competition for her is silly.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Oh, you mean like one of those fat brits with bad teeth whose only claim to fame in tennis was the semi's of a B draw in an obscure tournament in Camilla-land???

Talk about spectacle.

Navratilova won a match a tWImbledon, which is something most WCs do not d. I also really enjoy watching her oldschool game; very pleasing to watch

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson
