Extractions: NAVRATILOVA-PAES /Rodionova-Ram MODERATOR: Can we have your questions, please, for Martina and Leander Q. When you gave your TV interview, you were asked if you'd be back next year. You actually said you'd be back, whether or not you'd be playing. Does that mean you're thinking of packing it in? MARTINA NAVRATILOVA: Well, I have no idea what next year will bring. I really have no plans at this time. I just want to finish out the year and see what the heart says, I don't know. It's a lot of hard work. The payoff has been unbelievable this year. I've been plugging away, plugging away, and three years, I won one tournament. And now, it's all come to fruition. So I don't know. I have no plans right now, I really don't. One way or the other, I cannot tell you. But it would be a shame not to defend a title. At the same time, I wasn't planning on having to do that. Nice problem. Q. How do these latest titles compare to the ones you made in your earlier years?
Extractions: MELBOURNE (Reuters) An emotional Leander Paes reached the mixed doubles final of the Australian Open on Friday in his first tournament since recovering from a brain abscess. Indian cricket greats Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri were among those who rose to applaud the courageous Paes after he and 47-year-old Martina Navratilova, the defending champions, beat Jonathan Erlich and Liezel Huber 6-4 6-4 at Melbourne Park. "It's magic. It's already a dream come true. In the final, we'll just be playing for the cherries on top," said a teary-eyed Paes, who was sidelined for five months with a non-malignant brain lesion. "I'm pretty much trying to put it all behind me. To be here was a long shot (a few) months ago, so being in the final is just phenomenal. We are playing like two kids in a candy store." Wearing a baggy, long-sleeve shirt to hide the extra kilos he gained during his enforced layoff, the 30-year-old from Calcutta emphatically closed out with an ace to take the fourth seeds into Sunday's final against Nenad Zimonjic and Elena Bovina. Paes was rushed to an Orlando hospital last August after complaining of severe headaches and his condition was initially suspected to be cancer.
Extractions: ORLANDO, Florida (AP) Leander Paes of India is suffering from a parasite and not a brain tumor, hospital officials and his family said Sunday. Test results found that Paes has neurocysticercosis, common parasitic infection of the central nervous system, said Michelle Lynch, a spokeswoman for Orlando Regional Healthcare. "It's basically a tapeworm that got into his system," she said Sunday. "We don't know how he got it." Paes, 30, scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, where he has been since Tuesday. "Leander is deeply touched by the overwhelming support he continues to receive from around the globe," Paes' family said in a written statement released Sunday. Paes, a winner of six Grand Slam doubles titles, pulled out of the doubles competition at this week's tournament on Long Island and will not play in the upcoming U.S. Open. Paes checked himself into a hospital near his Orlando home Aug. 17 after suffering headaches for three days. A scan detected the lesion, and he was transferred to Anderson on Tuesday.

Extractions: MELBOURNE, Australia Twenty-eight years after reaching her first Australian Open final, Martina Navratilova on Friday served her way into another. Now a trim, toned 46-year-old, she partnered Leander Paes a one-year-old baby when she lost that final in 1975 to Evonne Goolagong to reach the mixed doubles championship decider. It was a performance of skill and professionalism and one that rolled back the years. Certainly defending champions Kevin Ullyett and Daniela Hantuchova had no answer to Navratilova and Paes's court craft and doubles acumen, the sentimental favorites running away with it 6-3, 6-1. Once the muscular powerhouse of tennis, Navratilova now looks short and slight compared to the heavy-hitting giants of the modern game, but she has lost none of her guile and cunning around the net. Paes and Navratilova will face Australia's Todd Woodbridge and Greece's Eleni Daniilidou on Sunday. Woodbridge and Daniilidou beat Donald Johnson and Australia's Rennae Stubbs 6-4, 6-2. Navratilova leaped for overheads and volleyed with accuracy as she and Paes broke Ullyett once in the first set and twice in the second. They also broke Hantuchova once in each set.

Paes, Bhupathi back for Davis Cup tie TENNIS NEW DELHI: Former world doubles champions Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi, who recently separated for the second time, will, most probably, play together in Indias Davis Cup Asia-Oceania Group I second round tie, to be held in Wellington from April 5 to 7. A win will give the team entry into the world group qualifying round. Theres no doubt about fielding them as our doubles pair (against New Zealand). But over a period of time, they will have to work it out. At least, prior to Davis Cup matches, which will be in the next stage, they will have to play some events together, Indias nonplaying captain Ramesh Krishnan was quoted as saying in news reports. Krishnan said he rated the duos chances of winning the doubles rubber against New Zealand high as they have had enough success together. Especially with reference to this particular tie, I feel they have played enough. Doubles is our strength and we should win that.
