Navratilova to play with Stevenson in Sydney

From the Sydney Morning Herald

Tennis fans willing to lace up the sandshoes to ensure Martina Navratilova's appearance in Sydney next week can relax, she's found a doubles partner.

Powerful American Alexandra Stevenson has answered the call of tournament organisers, agreeing to partner 46-year-old Navratilova in doubles at the adidas International tournament.

As reported in the Herald yesterday, frantic efforts were being made to find a partner for Navratilova after she expressed interest in playing in Sydney.

Tournament director Craig Watson confirmed yesterday that 22-year-old Stevenson had been on the top of Navratilova's wish list of players.

"Martina had said she'd like to play with Alexandra and we got in touch with her overnight and she's delighted to be playing with her," he said.

Navratilova made a triumphant return to tennis in Australia yesterday, partnering Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia to a 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 win over Russian Evgenia Koulikovskaya and Tatiana Poutchek of Belarus at the Uncle Tobys Hardcourts on the Gold Coast.

WTF do you mean?
Samantha Stevenson is to be ignored, nobody cares what she and her homophobic mind thinks.
People like her should be locked away for eternity, and you think Martina should shut up because of her?
