Thanks for this great footage, guys. It's really cute.

For those interested in what Martina's saying in the video:

"My name is Martina Navrátilová, I started playing tennis when I was five. Right now I'm seventeen so I've been playing for about 12 years now. I started playing tennis, because I liked the game and also because my parents played it, they were both tennis players. My tennis goal is to achieve the highest prize, i.e. to win Wimbledon. As yet, I've beaten Nancy Richey Gunter, who was 5th in the world's rankings, and Helga Masthoff, who was ranked 10th. So I'm satisfied with my results so far."

Thanks once again for the vid.
