Talking Martina Navratilova will play Indian Wells with Daniela Hantuchova

http://espndeportes.espn.go.com/teni...lls280102.html

(For those who do not understand Spanish, it just says that Martina and Daniela will play Indian Wells)

It seems they all want to play with Daniela - great to see Martina playing, but too bad for Arantxa, because I was hoping Daniela and Arantxa will keep playing together.

Anyhow, best of luck to Martina! may she win a title this year!!

Sorry Arantxa fans but I was hoping this would happen and i hope Martina steals Dani away! LOL

It would be a great experience for her to play with Martina -- she may not win as much as with Arantxa (or maybe she would who knows?) but she'll learn a lot and I think it would just be a lot of fun for her because Martina's doubles matches are always very fun with the spectators very involved.

And I think it's a very good partner for Martina, who has previously indicated how impressed she is with the young Slovak with a great serve and soft hands.

I'm pretty sure Martina is Daniela's WTA mentor..makes sense they would play together. And I will get to see it!!

Daniela can definitely benefit from Martina's experience. Hopefully she'll continue to play some with Arantxa, as well. I think both players can bring out the best of Daniela.

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

I have a feeling that Martina and Arantxa have taken it upon themselves to work with Daniela throughout the year; I read that on a post here some tme ago, and now it looks as though it may be true. A pity though, it would be good to see Arantxa get a regular partner with whom she could qualify for the world championships.

the best choice she's done since come back. Nothing personal against Joanette or Arantxa (love this girl), but Martina needs a powerful player as a partner... I was saying this from THE VERY BEGINNING!!!

besides, I'm sure Martina liked Daniela's outfilt at the AO

Vassilissa is my girl............

I don't care too much, it just concerns me that Arantxa might not play Indian Wells, she has a history of skipping that event

This is a good move for Martina as Daniela has everything she doesn't have and more... but I don't know about how great this is for Daniela. They could do very well together, but I think that Dani would do better with a younger partner. Plus the fact that she and Arantxa made the finals of the Australian... it doesn't make sense.

I'm sure this will make a great team!! But I REALLY hope that Daniela will be a regular partner for Arantxa this year. They excel both their games very well and people don't know that arantxa is a wonderful doubles player but she can NEVER have a consistent partner since her and Jana Novotna split up... She has won numerous titles with different partners and to my fact she has been in the top 15 of the doubles rankings as long as I can remember, she's also always near the top of the doubles points in the Race to the Chase but not as near as in the TEAM points of the year since she keeps switching. Part of me wants Martina and Daniela to do well but another part wants Daniela and Martina to do bad together so Daniela could consider playing regularly with Arantxa.....LOL I'm sure Randy and Marsha are having the same problem.

Well, I think Daniela has a good future, and she showed alot of versatility, though I think playing with Martina is not that smart of a move, I wish her Luck.

Now, Arantxa, I hope she plays with Jenny or Lindsay, If not one of those, then possibly Chanda if she returns, or even MOnica.

Vamos Arantxa

We Will Always Remember Arantxa!!! A legend forever and always!

Thumbs up Martina Navratilova will play Indian Wells...

Well as a fan of old Martina and a fan of young Martina...I think its great that she wants to still play doubles...however realistically she is 44 years old...probably in the best physical shape of any 44 year old out there but the fact remains..is she too old? The "Spice" girls have their number and should do it again. Yes, old Marti was smart to pick up Daniele ..feel sorry for ASV though..she was a little bull dog of a competitor...should be a good match if they do end up playing each other...all I can say is Good Luck Martina????
