Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Back from GM and very tired of all these Graffanatics,Anabelcroft,Jerriy ,LDVTennis ,Graftard and so on ..They don't respect others champions,are stubborns and dishonests.The funniest thing came from Jerriy who posted "Graf fans are classy like their idol " .Obviously they're very classy
For Martina and her smart fans i found an interesting article:http://www.successmagazine.com/uppin...463/channel/22

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Thanks Calou,

I had read the article but could not find it anymore to post it. I have decided to only read threadnames for a while and avoid to read the threads. Much more quiet. Now I have too see if I can keep my promise.

By the way thanks for the message.

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

When I was watching a dcumentary on Martina recently I was struck by how good her Englsih was as far back as 1975. Less than two years on the circuit and she was quite fluent.

P.S. if any of the nastiness from General messages spills over into the Blast let me know ASAP.

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Thanks Rollo for your kind words. Martina explained last april when she received the Peopling of America Award at Ellis Island that she could take English lessons from 1972 at her school and she probably picked it up with a lot of speed during her first years on the tennis circuit.
She handled herself so well at the pressconference about her defection. I read from a subscriber to the Tennis Channel and he said it this year that he thought Martina speaks as if she just came from the plane.
He probably has not heard Lendl, Mandlikova, Novotna and especially Kvitova.

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Lend's accent is the worse ! Kvitova will improve her English ,she's young .I was always impressed by people from Eastern country and their capacity for learning foreign languages.We French are so bad ...
Julia ,Martina's girlfriend speaks French without any accent .Usually Russians have the "rrrr" accent .

They're just glory hunters. If Graf didn't win all those slams most of them probably won't be fans.

Hi calou

So do you think Martina and Julia communicate in English, French or Russian?

I found this very funny tweet :RockFact! Justin Bieber is dedicating her new album to partner and former Wimbledon superchamp Martina Navratilova.

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

Do any of you guys have info on senior international tournaments (i.e. not Czechoslovakian National Closed Championships) that Martina won behind the iron curtain in the 72-75 period before she defected? I know she picked one up in Sofia in 72 and another in Wroclaw, Poland, in 74 (the European Amateur Champs) but know of no others. It would probably take a Czech speaker delving into newspaper archives to find more but Martina does mention in her autobiography that she played events in Eastern bloc countries while still under the control of the Czech Federation.

Re: Martina Navratilova Admiration Thread

US Opens in a year ending with a 1 were bittersweet for Martina.
'81 - a stupendous win over Evert in the SF followed by the loss to Austin in Martina's first final.
'91 - a stupendous win over Graf in the SF followed by the loss to Monica in Martina's last final.

In both years, ironically, she emerged the hero, as illustrated in her tearful acknowledgement of the crowd's support at the presentation in '81 and all the acclamations accompanying the "last charge" of the veterans (Martina & Connors) in '91.
