Martina Navratilova is staying with the form book and tipping the top seeds, Pete Sampras and Steffi Graf, to win the singles titles at Wimbledon.

Navratilova, who retired from the singles circuit at Wimbledon in 1994 after winning nine titles - six of them in a row - will be back at Wimbledon this year taking part in the mixed doubles. She will team up with Jonathan Stark, of the United States, in a bid win to win a record 20th title, surpassing the number held by Billie Jean King. The first round of the mixed doubles will be the 39-year-old's first competitive match this year.

"I can't imagine Steffi or Pete not winning. But the first week will be dangerous," she said. "I think Monica Seles can be dangerous and Arantxa [Sanchez] Vicario will be hungrier than any of them."
