Better yet, Navratilova (World #4) played 40 year old Jimmy Connors. Connors got 1 serve, and Martina got doubles alleys and Connors won in straights

Not this shit again. Sharapova would get double bageled by everyone in the top 1000.

I don't know why so many seem so pressed. Nobody is saying that the top women would be competitive in ATP, or even beat a player in the top 400 but I can't see why Serena couldn't win a few games against a 500-1000 player.

I don't see what kind of shame this brings to Navratilova?

You say 40 year old Jimmy Connors as if he was so much older than Martina, yet she was 35/36 herself at the time. And yes, she may well have been world number 4, but Connors was still recently active on the ATP tour and had not too long ago reached the 1991 US Open semis - he was no slouch. Those gimmicks were there to make the match competitive, and Connors was not expected to lose.

However, this does not mean we should look down on Navratilova. People can try and argue that many of today's players are mindless ballbashers etc, but the same cannot be said for the likes of Navratilova or Evert. They were great tactians, and Navratilova had one of the best volleying techniques of any male or female. Compete on a physical level they may not be capable of, but that does not mean we should disrespect their legend and talent.

Certainly not. If women had played regularly against men, Navratilova in her prime is my pick for the one to beat the highest ranked male opponents.

Thing is junior male players don't have that physical advantage over the women yet, since they haven't finished growing. So this isn't very surprising

Yeah, I really believe the junior was trying his best.....at all

Even so, it's a junior. I'd like to see her try and get a single game against any top 100 male player

Sharapova got nothing over the male players. Gruntollers could take her down in a scream contest and Verdasco can do more DFs in a row.

And yeah if any WTA player needs an ass-whooping give that Karsten Braash dude a call and pay him in cigarettes

I think it's not dissing Martina at all, actually it shows quite a tight match, which pretty much would say that back then serve was the main factor differentiating the sexes.

If we take Agassi now against Vika f.e. with the same rules, she wouldn't score more than 2-3 games, as modern tennis opens the sex gap even more (no pun intended )
