We're talking any round. Since the top players will have byes, Navratilova would have to win a first round match to meet them in the 2nd round at the earliest. Give scenarios. Would you like to see her win, push someone to the limit or get demolished by this player?

It'd be quite amusing to see her beat Stevenson, and a rematch of that Wimbly final vs. Conchita would be good, she's been bitter about that for a while. Ultimately though, a match against Jen, lindsay or Chanda could be pretty painful to watch.

Scenario: Martina draws a clay courter who is overawed by the experience and wins round two.

THEN-she plays (drum roll please) Guess who? Gimme a

D (Doesn't have a clue)
O (overplays way too much)
K (kills us with her paranoia)
I (Isn't she a dish though? The girl is cute)
C (Can still be a real threat if she gets it together someday)


A match made in heaven. If they still don't play tiebreaks in the third set
at Eastbourne a 12-10 score in the third would be nice. Winning, Jelena comes off court raving about "dirty over the hill lesbians" and how she can kick Martina's heiny every time.

After Dokic insults Navratilova Martina declares her new mission in life is to "convert" Jelena (no not THAT way folks-convert her from spoiled brat into a real tennis player with manners to boot). She will enter every event the uber-babe enters, pursue her to the ends of the earth. And Jelena enters LOTS of events!

Martina kicks Jelena's butt a time or two until Jelena showes Martina some R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Dokic hires Martina as a new coach and promptly wins Wimbledon in 2005 in sngles and doubles with Nav as her partner.

All this time Damir, fearing his daughter is being corrupted by Martina, gets drunk and lays down in traffic outside stadiums. However,he makes the fatal mistake of trying this in New York at the US Open, where a taxi makes a pancake out of him.

All this earns the WTA tons of publicity and all live happily ever after.

Pfft! I would play singles again but I'd show the players of today up. I'm still in fantastic shape and could bagel Martina anyday.

Besides, I have more important things to do with my time, like eat. Oh, and Fed Cup.

LOL @ Rollo!

I swear I saw a mini-tv series once that had about the same plot! ;) only Martina ended up being Jelena's long lost mother :p :D

Anyway, Conchita or Dokic are the best options :D I think they would be equally amusing... I voted for Jelena in the end, with Jelena's play right now, I could actually see Martina defeating her! (Not that Martina needs her ego to get any bigger :p)

Jelena, it would be very interesting indeed. Maybe Martina's the spark Jelena needs to get going? ;)

Conchita sweeping Martina would be OK so finally she'd give Conchi some credit

as soon as i read the thread title, the first words that entered my head were UBER-BABE :)

man, even my Bois who have zero or next to zero interest in tennis will wanna watch this one. This would be a match-up made in heaven, almost on a par with Riggs vs BJK coz yuo'll have the ageing staunch feminist and lesbian, up against the yuong brash homophobic upstart

and if they were to match up, the uber-babe will lay the smack down on Martina's ass, yuo mark my words :)

the Car Key Boi is always right :cool:

*waiting for Czechfan to disagree* :)

I hope it's Conchita, and I hope Conchita kicks her ass, not unlike the '94 Wimbledon final, only I hope this one is 6-0, 6-1, or something really bad. Martina will still not give her credit, even if this happens. Martina likes to use the longevity factor to puff up her record (though it needs no puffing), but uses the same thing to discount losses. Martina can't have it both ways. If you want to claim great wins being old, you have to count the losses and not poor-mouth!
