Navratilova plans full schedule

Turin :

Martina Navratilova plans to play a full schedule of doubles tournaments in 2006, including the Grand Slams, and might take another stab at singles."I just feel like I'm not quite done yet," Navratilova said on Wednesday.The remarks come even as the player approaches her 50th birthday and recovers from knee surgery."When I feel like I'm done, then I'm done. And I don't know when that will happen".Honest takeNavratilova is finally being honest with herself and her fans, after having repeatedly made "This time I really mean it" declarations about when she would hang up her racket. Navratilova originally retired in 1994, with a record 167 singles titles and having spent 331 weeks ranked No. 1. She returned to the tour as a doubles player in 2000, and eventually couldn't resist dabbling in singles, including a first-round victory at Wimbledon in 2004.She injured her left knee during an exhibition event in November and had arthroscopic surgery the next month, forcing her to miss the Australian Open and other events. Back at practice, Navratilova is now aiming to return to the WTA Tour at the February 20-25 hard-court tournament at Dubai, and then wants to play the next week at Doha.Her partner at those tournaments will be 29-year-old Liezel Huber, who teamed with Cara Black to win Wimbledon last year.
