Beating a 46 year old Martina on CLAY 6-4 in the third, well, its something she should be proud of, but its not that big of a deal

I am sure if you were to ask Ashley about it....over even Mashona Washington for that matter........they would beg to differ with you.

I think it is great. Ashley was on court with a tennis legend.

Oh please, Martina is only a shadow of her former self at 46. And clay is her worst surface. And this was just her first tournament ever with Alicia. Despite all this, they were up 4-2 in the final set but blew it.

I agree with the others: big deal.

Not a super, super deal in general...but the fact that she reached her first singles semifinal of a pro event, as well as defeated a legend in doubles, this has been a huge tournament for her.

Considering the icon Martina is, I think it's a huge deal for Ashley. Just being on the court with Martina must have been a honor...but to beat her? what a thrill!

It's a big deal for Martina Navratilova; she simply hates losing....her wrinkles reflects this feeling.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Even if Martina is 102 it still means something special to beat the best ever player, and will be a good confidence booster for a youngster like Ashley!

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

I agree. Ashley is now a part of Martina's colorful tennis career.

It deserves some credit, Martina a great doubles player, she has won 3 titles? since Madrid last year, so she should be playing some pretty good tennis, not for nothing she and Svetlana won over Suarez and Ruano in Miami. So beating her is a great acomplishment no matter what.

Do you think Hantuchova was proud after her 2-6 6-2 6-2 win in Eastbourne over Martina? i think so too.
