Navratilova Considers Political Career

Veteran tennis star MARTINA NAVRATILOVA is considering following ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER's path into politics.

The 46-year-old, who won a record-equalling 20th WIMBLEDON title this summer (03), became a naturalised American following humble beginnings in Europe just like the TERMINATOR actor - and now Navratilova has been inspired by Arnie's decision to run for Governor of California.

She says, "If Arnold can run for governor in California, who knows? I have the muscles! I will be involved, especially with the way things are going right now. The conservative party is too strong."

And friends are unsurprised at the veteran sportswoman's plans.

One says, "Martina's highly intelligent and has become a big ambassador for women's tennis. Plenty of us have seen her as a budding politician for some time. Like anything she does, she's bound to go at it 100 per cent."
