Martina Navratilova not buying Serena Williams' Wimbledon "virus" excuse

First thing we thought seeing Serena Williams stumbling around at Wimbledon was, "Why the hell is she still out there?" Second? What does Martina Navratilova think about this.

“I think virus, whatever they’re saying it was, I don’t think that was it,” Navratilova told ESPNw. “I think it’s clear that’s not the case. I don’t know what it is, but I hope Serena will be OK.”

Though Navratilova did not go as far as to suggest what she thought “it” was — something chemical? a Richie Tenenbaum moment? — the nine-time Wimbledon champ was baffled Serena even made it on the court in her distressed condition.

“It’s the most inexplicable thing of all that she was clearly in no state to play a match and that with all the people around her, that they didn’t stop her from getting on the court,” Navratilova said.

“The coach said he hadn’t seen her for two days. He didn’t know anything. How can you be a coach and not know anything? That’s wrong. And Venus was just kind of there. You don’t know what’s going on, but virus was not it, that much is clear.”
