Navratilova a big inspiration to remodel my game and stay healthy: Paes

Leander Paes, who became the oldest man to clinch a Grand Slam title in the Open era after winning the men’s doubles crown with Radek Setpanek at the just-concluded US Open, says it is because of his former mixed doubles partner Martina Navratilova that he has been able to prolong his career.

“Playing with Martina for many, many years, I have learnt a lot. She is obviously a big inspiration for me to continue to remodel my game and stay healthy. I have also learnt how to live a clean lifestyle and be productive towards my tennis,” Paes said in Mumbai on Friday.
