Former World Number 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki has feathers ruffled by legend Navratilova.

National Post | Sports

DUBAI — Former world number one Caroline Wozniacki hit back at Martina Navratilova on Monday for claiming that the Dane had never deserved to be top of the world rankings.

Wozniacki also suggested she has lost respect for Navratilova, regarded by many as the greatest woman player ever, implying that her TV commentating sought to stir things up and that it would be better to “think a little bit.”

“I would never say Martina was number one when there was no one playing,” Wozniacki said.

Her comment was an echo of Navratilova’s remarks at an Australian Open press conference, in which the 55-year-old legend said: “Clearly nobody feels Wozniacki is a true number one.”

Navratilova, whose 18 Grand Slam singles titles were achieved when the women’s game had less depth, also criticized the modern ranking system which placed Wozniacki at the top for 68 weeks.
