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
If I'm not mistaking :worship:

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.
