I don't think so! Because in a match at Wimby it was 4 oldies against each others!

It was Navratilova/Zvereva vs Tauziat/Po-Messerli

So, you have to look the age of Zvereva

At that time: Navratilova 45, Zvereva 32

yes you're right! but that match was the oldest!!

45 + 32 + 31 + 35 = 143 years old :eek:

Why don't McNeil and Navratilova play together?

Lori has retired.

This does look to be a modern record. Billie Jean King & Martina played doubles at Birmingham in 1989 when Billie Jean was 45 & Martina was 32 - combined age of 77.

It's great to see two oldies out there showing the kids they still got game ;)

If Lori retired, is she Mandy's coach...She IS at Amelia Island.

Yes, Lori is Amanda's coach and she travels in that capacity. Amanda's doubles partner is now Jessica Steck.

Ok, how about Navratilova/McEnroe in Mixed at Wimbledon? Call me crazy, but I think they could win it.
