Navratilova-Shriver team loses


WIMBLEDON, England -- Pam Shriver and Martina Navratilova, reunited as a Grand Slam doubles team for the first time in two years, fell one step short of reaching the Wimbledon women's final yesterday.

After defeating Arantxa Sanchez Vicario and Helena Sukova, 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) in a rain-delayed quarterfinal, Shriver and Navratilova had to play a semifinal match. But the team that has shared 20 Grand Slam victories was beaten by Larisa Savchenko and Natalia Zvereva, 2-6, 6-2, 6-4.

Savchenko and Zvereva will meet Gigi Fernandez and Jana Novotna in the final.
