Oldest doubles combination ever in a WTA tournament?

Martina Navratilova 46 y
Els Callens 32 y


78 years old

Is the the oldest combination ever?

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I don't think so! Because in a match at Wimby it was 4 oldies against each others!

It was Navratilova/Zvereva vs Tauziat/Po-Messerli

So, you have to look the age of Zvereva

At that time: Navratilova 45, Zvereva 32
If I'm not mistaking

45 + 32 + 31 + 35 = 143 years old

But I'm talking about team, not match

Why don't McNeil and Navratilova play together?

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Lori has retired.

This does look to be a modern record. Billie Jean King & Martina played doubles at Birmingham in 1989 when Billie Jean was 45 & Martina was 32 - combined age of 77.

It's great to see two oldies out there showing the kids they still got game

Yes, Lori is Amanda's coach and she travels in that capacity. Amanda's doubles partner is now Jessica Steck.

Ok, how about Navratilova/McEnroe in Mixed at Wimbledon? Call me crazy, but I think they could win it.
