Talking Cheering Navratilova on to complete the "Martina Slam"

Yes! I had no idea Navratilova/Paes were in the SF of mix doubles.

The mix doubles crown at the Australian is the only slam title that eludes Martina. So Martina has a chance to complete the "Martina Slam" here! Woohoo!

Martina's Grand Slam Titles:

Australian Open (Winner)
Singles: '81, '83, '85
Doubles: '80, '82-'85, '87-'89 (No tournament in '86)
Mix:

Roland Garros (Winner)
Singles: '82, '84
Doubles: '75, '82, '84-'88
Mix: '74, '85

Wimbledon (Winner)
Singles: '77-'78, '82-'87, '90
Doubles: '76, '79, '81-'84, '86
Mix: '85, '93, '95

US Open (Winner)
Singles: '83-'84, '86-'87
Doubles: '77-'78, '80, '83-'84, '89-'90
Mix: '85, '87

I'm suprised that there's been so little attention on this great run by Navratilova/Paes, but hopefully the lack of pressure will help. I think they've got a good chance here. Uylett/Daniela are a very good partnership but Nav/Paes are the _cleverer_ team & Navratilova must have got Daniela's game sussed out after they've played doubles together. And then it'd be Stubbs/Johnson or Woodbridge/Danilidou in the final - pretty even match. So, there's at least a 50/50 chance for Martina Navratilova to bag another GS title. Wouldn't that be amazing?

Good luck guys! Maybe they'll be able to show some of this after the women's doubles final

Good luck to the original Martina! I hope this partnership "Paes" off.

She would have had it sooner, but there was a run of 17 Oz Opens during her career in which there was no mixed event.
