What she said:
“It’s the way the game is played now. The two hander will rule, no doubt in my mind. Unfortunately, it’s a beautiful thing that’s kind of passe.”
Martina Navratilova agrees that as the game progresses it becomes harder and harder for a player with a single-handed backhand to triumph against two-handed backhand players.
What she really meant:
“A single-handed backhand player? Soon to be extinct—a museum for him or her, perhaps?”
What she definitely didn’t:
“Federer still rules.”
A rain-delayed Monday US Open final dawns.
