Has there been a sketch the other way round I mean Martina making fun of Chris that only would have been fair. Did SNL not know that Martina only did wear her glasses on the court. After seeing a couple of documentaries I really know how unfair Martina was treated by especially the americans so I cannot find this funny at all and believe me I do have a sense of humour.

You know, you're absolutely right; we Americans did treat Martina unfairly. We screwed her when we granted her political asylum. We screwed her when we let her keep her prize money and play doubles with whomever she wanted. We REALLY screwed her when we didn't immediately throw her in an insane asylum when she admitted she was homosexual.

Should we congratulate the US for granting basic human rights to an individual? :confused:

Ah, come on. I'm sure Martina was laughing too! :rolls:

Yup, I remember Chris saying that Martina sent her a telegram after the show congratulating her for her performance. Also, this happened soon after Chris had retired, and by then, Martina was no longer the dominant "villain." That was Steffi Graf.

When said individual was not a citizen of this country and could have very easily been sent back home, yes. Not everyone who asks for political asylum is granted it. Then again, not everyone who asks for political asylum could play tennis like Martina Navratilova.

Martina should have defected to Australia, we would have treated her with the appropriate respect, named stadiums after her etc. The Americans were pretty ungrateful.

This was the start of a great thread, to give people a good laugh. And because one person did not like how Martina was presented on SNL has turned this into something it need not be. On the 30 for 30 special it shows Martina and Chris looking at the SNL sketch and laughing. So if she had no problem with it why should anyone else.


And I really don't like anyone putting down how my country treated Martina. She was treated better in the Country than she was in her own. And anyone who thinks Martina would have had a stadium named after her in Australia...., Evonne doesn't have a stadium named after her and she was born there.

Martina was never booed or disrespected in the Czech Republic, or in Australia for that matter, like she's been in the U.S.

First how can you say she was never booed or disrespected in Czech Republic, for a long time her name was never mentiond in any newspaper or magazine. For your own Coutry to not acknowledge you for the things you have done, you don't think that is being disrespected?

Second I don't know how she was treated in Australia, so I can't comment on that.

Third, I will acknowledge that in my country she was not treated right by some of the fans and sports reporters, but there are just as many in this counrty who loved and respected her for what she did and how she did it.

You think Martina was an hated American player? There are posters who dedicate their participation on this board to hating the top two American players.

I must admit I didn't think that this thread will open the discussion about Martina and international affair, well anyway I think she must be thrilled with her life and achievement so why should her care about anything.
