Navratilova supports strike action

1:33 pm on 24 September 2011

The 18-time grand slam winner Martina Navratilova has come out in support of top players taking strike action over their crowded tennis schedule.

World number four Andy Murray earlier this week said leading players are more than willing to go on strike if officials don't heed their calls to reduce the number of events on the calendar.

Navratilova says people outside the game don't understand the level of intensity the body goes through on the professional circuit.
