Martina Navratilova, the Wimbledon women's singles champion a record nine times, said yesterday that she might play mixed doubles at the All England Club with the former men's champion John McEnroe.

She told reporters in Prague that if the pair's television work allowed, they could team up at this year's championships, which begin on 26 June.

Navratilova, 38, who retired from full-time singles competition last year after losing the Wimbledon final to Conchita Martinez, will definitely be playing doubles with Steffi Graf, the world No1 and French Open champion, and she will tune up for Wimbledon by playing doubles with either Graf or her fellow-American Lisa Raymond at Eastbourne next week.
