Quote of the week

"When I first came back and I was playing well, it was 'well, the women's field is not that good,"' she said. "When Martina (Hingis) comes back and does well at the Australian Open, it's 'well, the women just aren't that deep.'

"But Mario Lemieux comes back after a couple of years' absence, and it's 'well, that's amazing.' When Michael Jordan comes back, it's 'he's the best of all time.' There's such a double standard for women athletes."
Martina Navratilova
