😆 Yes, you’re quite correct—her application was DENIED.
She will have to seek another lender.
But my point still stands about Navratilova being (understandably) a passive-aggressive old shrew when it comes to commentating about someone who can put dents in her Wimbledon record.
It’s almost like a conflict of interest, in terms of journalism and ethics (and Nav and Chrissie et al. are de facto journalists by being hired commentators) ...
... but journalistic ethics are deader than door-nails and Martuna can say what she pleases.
It’s nothing to get angry about—all the glorious champs have the minds of narcissistic teenagers, essentially.
Not a single scholar or high intellect among them, and you’d believe that.
That includes Margaret, of course: so many more loving causes she could have praised and publicized.
She could have really dialed it down. 🙄 Or, even better, kept her thoughts to herself, as many wiser people do, who know when to speak and when not to speak in this screeching world.
Martina’s magnificent, but she acts like a snotty little brat and has always done so. It’s okay: a champ like her is entitled to not just a bit but a LOT of attitude.
That being said, her current, future ex-wife, Nemcova, Lemcova, is morphing into Pam Shriver at lightning speed—I half-expect to see her and M‘Tina on a doubles court soon.
There must be a U-Haul parked perpetually in their yard.
