It was a soft-core fight. Navratilova started the mud rolling when she questioned Graf's stoicism on court.
"She doesn't show anything," Navratilova said. "I just hope she enjoys it. . . . I don't get any sense of emotion when she's playing. I'm sure that she's feeling something.
"I don't know what she feels. I don't really speak to her that much, rather she doesn't speak to me. I don't have any idea what's going on in her mind or her heart."
Then Navratilova outlined Graf's conversation practices.
"She doesn't talk to anybody, really," Navratilova said. "She sort of runs in the locker room, changes real quick and doesn't talk to anybody. One player in the locker room was saying 'Come on, Steffi, smile.' She just ran out."
