Of the two current players, Wozniak is one of the very worst doubles players in the top 100 without question. Serena Williams is along with her sister one of the two most successful doubles players in the game.

Of the two retired players Seles, relative to her singles career had quite unspectacular doubles results and generally wasn't terribly interested in playing doubles regularly although she did manage to win 6 doubles titles. Navratilova is without doubt the most successful doubles player of all time.

In other words this is a mismatch. If this was a meaningful match there is no question Navratilova/Williams would demolish Seles/Wozniak quite brutally. But it is not. It is an exhibition and one taking place in Wozniak's home country. Hence it is almost certain to be close and competitive. I suspect Navratilova/Williams will still win but with exhibition matches there are never any guarentees regardless of the relative quality of the players involved.

Yeah, Nav/Serena should win this and in a match situation would do so easily IMO. We have the stronger pro and retired players against the weaker pro and retired players (Seles has been off the longest). Plus if you look at their doubles careers Nav and Serena were far better than Monica and Aleks.


I think Serena/Seles vs Navratilova/Wozniak would have been a more even matchup.

For sure that would have been a much much fairer matchup. I can only guess Navatilova refused to play with someone as poor in doubles as Wozniak. :tape:

I think they should let Seles win this and Serena be careful with that Navratilova dont discuss tactics just be on your guard.

They gave the choice to Aleks to choose her partner and she chose Monica ;)

Well, I guess Aleks must be a very big Seles fan. :shrug:

It is a weird matchup, but only for an exhibition afterall.

Am I the only one who wishes Seles would have just played a singles set against Wozniak?

Maybe this won't be as one sided as people think. Seles surely hits better than Navratilova right now (maybe not on a doubles court).

Well that's the thing, it's doubles and it's with Wozniak. :sobbing:

Monica beats Martina in most of their exho singles matches so yeah she'd probably still hit better than her at the baseline (she always did). I also would probably prefer her to play a singles.

I think Nav has won once against Monica in the dozen exo's they've played. It's been cool stuff, especially a recent one that's on youtube.
