They're waiting for Martina Navratilova to come up with a willing partner to carry her tired 46-year-old ass through the first week! :haha:

What a pathetic thing to say. One player can't carry a doubles duo to seven doubles titles this year, two of which were Slams.

It must really drive some people crazy that Martina has nearly made it into the top 10 of doubles at her age.

Oh lighten up! And how many Mixed Doubles Majors has Martina won during her career? Curious that she's playing so much now, eh?

Something must be up, as it has never been this late.
Ignoring the comment about Martina. She is a legend, and don't need to defend someone with her record.

Martina actually has played mixed doubles all through her career.

They just announced on tv that the women's doubles draw was being held up until tonight, hoping that more high-profile stars will enter.

9 career Mixed Doubles Majors sounds like alot, but put into perspective, and stretched over 30 years on the tour- you'll find that most years she passed on mixed doubles entirely and played only with the women. I think in hindsight- she probably wishes now that she did play more mixed. Margaret Court holds 19 Mixed Doubles Majors. Imagine what Martina's record could be...

I'm not too far off in suggesting that they are waiting on Martina to find a partner...

Hardly. She's down to play with Kuznetsova as usual. They're 4th in the race to the year end dubs.

Cool- hopefully I'll catch the old gal in action on Friday. I really do like watching her tennis!

Even the mixed doubles draw is already out (I've posted it in the US-Open thread)

But where the hell is the Women's Doubles Draw ?!

Yeah, where is the women's draw?

Another bad draw for Corina!! In mixed her and Justine Gimelsob draw the #4 seeds. Maybe they can get past them...they did make the semis last year. Maybe the women's will me better?! haha
