NAVRATILOVA HONORED

Martina Navratilova received the latest recognition of her amazing career in Madrid on Wednesday, when she was awarded Marca newspaper's "Leyenda" ("Legend") award. In the 70-year history of the sports publication, the most widely-read daily sports newspaper in Spain, only two dozen people have received the award, among them IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch, basketballer Michael Jordan, Formula One driver Michael Schumacher and tennis players Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario and Pete Sampras.

Sánchez-Vicario was on-hand Wednesday to help present the award and also to help translate the tribute read out in Spanish to Martina by the newspaper's editors!

Somehow it reminds me of the other Martina who is nursing her injuries. A little ironic, when Navratilova is still running and competing while Hingis was on the brink of forced retirement.
