Martina Navratilova played 2 WTT Singles matches!

She beat Brie Rippner 5-1 but lost to Maria Sharapova. Apparently the match against Sharapova was close, with almost all the games going to deuce and Maria just squeaking through in these no-ad games. Even though Brie is retired or semi-retired or something like that, it's very impressive that Martina can dominate a player of Rippner's calibre so thoroughly at her age!

BTW, Maria won her match against Martina 5-2

i have seen Brie play Serena at the adidas last year i think and she certainly plays a solid game with top 100 ability IMO.

Can you think of many other players of Martina;s age who could beat Brie so comprehensively? :retard:

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

VSFan, Rippner did qualify for the US Open last year as well take a set of Henin at Wimbledon that year, so she certainly isn't a slouch. I think the only reason she hasn't been playing is because she is so damn injury prone. It's certainly a good effort by Martina to pull that off. I think if she came back to the tour in singles, she might even pull off a ranking close to 50

I know how good Brie is I'm saying, although she is an adequate player, her attitude makes her deserve no recognition for whatever achievements she gets.
