Martina Nav finally concedes to her true emotions.

So where does Williams rank among the best women's tennis players through the years?

"Top five," answered Navratilova, without a moment's hesitation. "It's not just about how many Slams you win or how many tournaments you win -- it's just your game overall. And she's definitely got all the goods. It would have been fun to play her, but at the same time, I'm glad that I didn't have to."

Best thing is, I've never seen Serena reply to all this Navratilova talk.

Thanks, great article.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

I don't think she mentioned Hingis, did she?

She knows Hingis exists and did not mention her.

I watched that speech and actually do not remember her acknowledging Martina whatsoever. I remember being surprised that she just kind of blew it off and didn't compliment her back.
