Wimby Rd 1: (WC)Navratilova V. Castano

Who's gonna take this one? On grass you'd have to think Martina N. could be a favorite to win at least one round at Wimby this year!

Difficult: Castano is a clay courter, Martina hasn`t played that much singles, Martina beat Smashnova-Pistolesi easily, beat Santangelo as well, lost to Likhovtseva who is a great grass player. Wimbledon will give Martina a boost and I think, Castano just enjoys to be part of Martina`s return, so Martina in 2.

Martina in two

I might have said Castano before she was double-bagelled by Molik

I picked Navratilova in 3 sets. She will definently win the first set.
Castano is not confident on grass as it is. let alone having to play one of the best grass courters ever.
Nav will be at the net... Castano will be frozen with nerves for a while... probably hit some nice passing shots.. but in the end Nav has the diversity and 'aura' to overwhelm Catalina.
Would not be surpsied if it is a win for Nav in straights either.
Castano will probably make an 'unusual' amount of unforced errors under all the pressure in this match - she will not be as smooth as Dulko was at RG.

Navratilova, 6-2 6-4

The results at the Eastbourne Cup speak for itself

Didn't Castano just receive the Royal beatdown by Alicia Molik?

Navratilova 6-2 6-3

Martina couldn't have asked for an easier first round, so she better win this one!
