Navratilova out of US Open

New York:

Martina Navratilova's run at this US Open ended when she lost in the mixed doubles semifinals. Whether she'll return to Flushing Meadows or retire, that decision will come later. "This might be my last US Open or it might not," she said on Thursday. "I'm not definite, one way or another." At 47, Navratilova was hoping to add to her total of 58 Grand Slam championships. But she lost with Lisa Raymond in doubles in the quarterfinals, and was eliminated with Leander Paes of India 10-3 in a third-set super-tiebreaker by Australians Alicia Molik and Todd Woodbridge. "We outplayed them for the match, and we lost. It's pretty much what happened in our doubles as well. Pretty frustrating for me," she said. Not enough winsNavratilova has won 167 titles in singles and 174 in doubles. Only one of those victories came this year, in a doubles tournament in Vienna. She lost at the Olympics in the quarterfinals. "I'm playing better tennis than I did last year. The game is better, but the results are worse," she said. "Very consistent, but not enough wins certainly." Navratilova and Paes won the first set 6-4 and then lost 3-6, forcing the tiebreaker. (AP)
