Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Thanks Petronius for your extensive answers you may not agree but I like Dvorak maybe something like personal taste.

I have never been to Prague but if I travel to the city I will certainly go to Revnice.
Of course the communist would not make a hero of Martina that would have told they were very wrong in being so hard on her before her defection.

I always thought were it the gods to intervene that Martina won her 9th Wimbledon title half a year after the Velvet Revolution?

To me Martina has always been the most special player, I really do not know why I missed the first years of her career but I think 1977 or 78 she really did strike me.

I am very sorry that she lost a lot of years through her transition after her defection because she then would have been hands down the best player ever, for me she still is but not for others.

Remember just three titles less then Margaret Court her natural enemy 62 against 59. But then nobody had to do it like Martina and she still did remarkebly well.
When is the term of Kaderka president of the Czech tennis federation over, just asking you know why.
