while maria sharapova consolidated her star status on center court, martina navratilova ended her wimbledon career almost unseen, on an outside court, losing in the womens doubles semis on court 13.

the rain dictated the unfortunate scheduling.

like nav or not, most will agree that its a huge shame that the greatest wimbledon career ever had to end like that.. :(

9 singles wins, 20 titles in total, over more than 30 years.
getting to the semis wasn't a bad effort either. Great job Martina! :worship:

She said it many times that it is really her last year playing single or double.
Didn't she retire ten years ago? :lol:

It was a shame, I think Martina's court allocations all week sucked. Oh well. The semis of the womens doubles was a decent result although that was alost opportunity - and losing 13-11 to the Black siblings who are now in the final is nothing to be ashamed of - A succesful tournament for Martina imo.

:worship: Martina. This ending doesn't matter- it's the Wimby organizers' fault. All anyone will remember is the great champion.
