WIMBLEDON, England - Martina Navratilova sure can spot tennis talent when she sees it.
At an exhibition in Moscow a dozen years ago, she saw a girl brandishing a racket and encouraged her to seek serious coaching, perhaps in the United States.
Next week at Wimbledon (news - web sites), both Navratilova and that kid 〓 Maria Sharapova 〓 will be competing. And while Navratilova, now 47, is playing singles at the All England Club one last time before retiring, Sharapova, now 17, considers herself a title contender.
