Navratilova predicts Henin and Djokovic to win FO 2008 -how good are her predictions?

She likes to blab but given her accomplishments I'd think she has a better tennis brain than Bud Collins. How good have her analyses been in the past? Speaking for myself, I think it's an interesting prediction - I'd think S. Williams and Nadal would be the much more typical prediction.

Discuss.

Nole fan: "...most Fedtards seem to be very rabid and rude." (I agree 100%)

You can bet Djokovic's mom just screamed "Another king is dead" right about now - in the remotest corner - of her bathroom - followed by "The other one is buried." (from tennisplanet.me, following Madrid 2011 Djokovic d. Nadal 7-5 6-4)

I wouldn't back Djokovic for the French unless he beat Nadal on clay, or at the very least wins a clay master Series. Until then, she is geting ahead of herself.

Right now it is pretty obvious on past results that Nadal will win comfortably, but anything can happen (he might lose a few more sets)

She is dying for Nole to win the Golden slam and wipe what her rival Steffi did 20 years ago. Not happening, Martina. Sorry.

Navratilova knows more than any of us together. So...

She may have been biased. I think she hates the Williams sisters and it was obvious to a two-year old that Venus was going to smash everyone off the grass last year.

Re: Navratilova predicts Henin and Djokovic to win FO 2008 -how good are her predicti

Apparently she hasn't yet noticed how much Henin has been struggling lately...

I think she's just saying whatever the broadcasters think people want to hear.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Navratilova predicts Henin and Djokovic to win FO 2008 -how good are her predicti

I think Henin is a pretty safe bet - she loves the clay and is very at home in Roland Garros, whilst Serena is far less comfortable on it.

For the men.......... wel Nadal has got to be the overwhealming favourite to win the title surely. But, having said that, even his run has got to end sometime, and with Roger far from at his best in 2008, who better to end it than Nole

Martina doesn't know shit. xD
For real, when I hear her talk, I turn volume down, or try to focus hard not to listen to her.

"Hey mister umpire, can you tell that bitch on another side of the net to stop grunting, she is beating the hell out of me just because she grunts so much and I cannot hear the ball hit the racket."

I can't stand her (or him). Who knows.

I don't like Nadal.

You know thats fucking bullshit.

If Martina said Nadal would win and Nole had no chance, you'd say she was full of shit.
