It will happen.

Navratilova is winning grandslams and titles in doubles right now, she's also used to returning big serves in mixed doubles, she even recently beat Monica in an exhibition. Yeah Monica was not in top form but still, it's a nice win.

Also, add the fact that the clay will slow down Serena's serve and groundstrokes, that it will give more time for Navratilova to get to the balls, and the most important fact which is that Navratilova has all the shots in the game and could drive Serena crazy with her drop shots, relentless net attacks (something that Serena has never faced), slice shots, top spin, variety, add also the fact that Navratilova has a lot of experience. And there you have it, a Navratilova win.

just one problem. martina would have trouble winning points vs. serena in singles. there is a huge difference between singles and doubles.

I think that with all the junk shots that Navratilova will come up with especially those slice shots, plus her relentless net game that Serena isn't used to facing, Serena will do a LOT of errors. However if it was a faster court, then Serena would blow her off the court. But on clay, it will be different.

Don't underestimate Navratilova's wicked lefty serve. If it was so pathetic, she wouldn't win grandslams in doubles, definitely not in mixed.

If Serena lose to Martina go away Navravtilova in singles then Serena needs to retire.

If this does happen, Serena should retire from tennis if she finds her self down a set to Martina Navratilova. That goes to anyone who loses to her on the way to meeting Serena.

Why would Serena retire in the second set? Serena is too fast for the drop shot to work effectively all match. Nav is having trouble winning doubles...... singles VS S Willimas...... not likely

martina would struggle to gain a respectable scoreline IMO. her performances in doubles have been impressive (extrodinary) for her age but i think that has had a lot to do with her partners as well. i honestly think brandi will beat her easily

I know Brandi will beat her easliy..... I got to see her play at the nasdaq when she beat meghaan and shes a very good player. UNless her nervses overtake her she should thrash martina!

Every player in the top 30 that play normally would beat Navratilova in two sets, and Mauresmo, Davenport,Hénin, Clijsters,Serena, Vénus, Pierce, Myskina would destroy her sorry

Martina could win against everything outside top 50
but she would lose some like 6-1 6-1 against Serena.
