The Navratilova Protocol

Moments ago, I asked Martina Navratilova for her opinion on the Serena Williams-Justine Henin match tomorrow. She seemed stunned and said, “See that lady? You can ask her if you can talk to me.”

I directed my request to the lady in question, a pleasant WTA press official who said she’d call me back. Two minutes later, she did. The interview request had been declined.
