It happened a couple of weeks ago...she partnered up with Tara Snyder, who is playing her first matches back after being gone for a full year due to an assortment of injuries.

She's ranked in the mid 500s for doubles now...she won't be the second coming of Navratilova, but she's got the game to be a top 300 player in doubles IMO. Nice to see some other oldies holding their own on the tour now.

BTW, she's the coach for the Boston Lobsters WTT team this summer, which Martina Navratilova is playing on...go Anne!!

...Why?Would you be utterly shocked to learn that professional tennis players like competing against the toughest opposition they're competitive against?

yeah well shes obviously not physically strong enough for singles. for one her serve would be so smackable and she wouldnt be able to last out the long rallies.

doubles negates those two big problems and b/c she obviously still has talent (it doesnt just dissapear) she can still hold her own, im sure she still has good hands at the net :)

its nice to see another granmda out there kicking butt even if it is 10k level
