They ought to seed her. I'll bet she's still one of the 32 best.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

LOL NOT. She'd get clobbered, doubt she'd be Alex Stevenson on a fast hardcourt.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Really, I thought she was born in 1958- how do they say it nowadays? MY BAD!!! (although I've always asked "my bad what?" in response- this is almost as ridiculous a reply as the "wha happen?" reply when what is really meant is "excuse me?")

No one should tell me that this woman has passion for the game and
playing at the age of 44.
She is lesbian or in usual term homo. She never had a child and earned
$20 million during her tennis career. What has she done with this big
amount of money. She is tennis disgrace, playing at the age of 44 yrs.
and the worst to be considered playing at the forthcoming US Open.

she had to give half her money to some bitch who used her and then dumped her

in the early ninties she said in an interview that money was a reason why she continued to play too but I have no doubt she has passion for tennis too

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I will say this: Martina Navratilova knows her tennis history, unlike her great rival Evert, who (thankfully) left the commentary booth this year. I have never heard a former player spout wrong statistics so often as when Chris Evert was in the booth at Wimbledon.

Martina does have passion for the game, and she is not playing at 44, she is playing and winning Slams at 46. What a legend

You say this as if it is something Martina should be ashamed of. Martina was one of the first 'out' athletes and is a role model because of it.

Gee, thanks for clearing that up. Git.

If it did happen (QL - can you say "troll"?) it would be less ridiculous than some of the other entries and wildcards. Personally, I don't think she has the stamina to do a tournament's worth of singles matches, but so long as she enjoys competing in doubles, and she can compete in doubles, shut up and let the woman play.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

I think wimbledon would have been a better choice if she is contemplating a slam return in singles. Though I think there might be another player out there more deserving of a wild card than martina. Maybe she can play the qualies and try to play herself into the tournament, that would be fair imo.

Go martina!
