Women's tennis has entered a new era no longer dominated by Serena Williams, 18-time Grand Slam winner Chris Evert said Saturday.Navratilova, who also won 18 singles Grand Slams in her career, said it was "not quite" a changing of the guard but that the game is now much closer -- though players still need to watch out for when Williams returns.Asked about Sharapova's return next year, Navratilova said: "Well she didn't dominate when she was playing but top four, absolutely".She defended Sharapova over her doping ban, pointing out that meldonium was a drug that had been allowed for many years.
