Did Myskina remind anyone of....

After her match on ESPN they interviewed her in the booth and she seemed to talk a lot like and her voice sounds a lot like...Martina Hingis.

Did anyone else see this?!?!?!

Hingis is a huge admirer of the Myskina game. Sounds like Hingis,
looks kind of like Marilyn Manson. What's not to love?

No really. I like her. I've posted that many times before. She's
the most underated player in the top 10.

Yes, Hingis did say Myskina was her favorite among the top girls these days. Also, they have similar baseline styles except Anastasia goes for a lot more.

Yes, they have similar games...but I was just saying that they seem to talk similarly, have same tone, seems like a close similarity in accent as well...

The biggest thing that similar between the two is their games.

And I wish Martina was still playing..

Nastya hits a lot harder and flatter than Martina.

But yes, they do have similiar accents.

That's EXACTLY the first thing I thought Nastya seems like a nice person...but I still don't understand all the fuss about her game. I don't see anything special with it. I even can't understand why she is ranked so high...

So funny! During the interview I thought she sounded like Hingis, too.

I know what you mean? It baffled me too. Watched that final
against NRR-DEN and I couldn't believe Myskina won because
it didn't look like she was doing anything special; but that's
where we are wrong. Myskina does a hell lot on court, and
her baseline passing shots are difficult to read. She doesn't
seem to be moving quickly; but she's very fast. Doesn't make
alot of grunting, so it doesn't look to be heavy hitting; but it's
on the level with everyone else in the top 10. It's more about
the untangibles. Myskina has excellent shot selection and
anticipation of an opponents returns.

Their games are not alike in anyway. Hingis adds topspin on her shots with some touch. Myskina hits it hard and flat, doesn't really have an all-court game. They did sound a lil alike, I didn't think of it when they were interviewing her though.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

I thought the SAME EXACT THING! WOW!

JESUS

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

...Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28

yes yes, totally felt the same way.that head band....that smile..she's a little bit of a joker like martina, always wanting to have fun. however there court attitudes are very much different but you know what? it was the first time i'd actually seen mysinka play, and i totally understand why martina likes her the best, its not so much the way they hit the ball, but there court sense is quite similar, nastya finds some really unique shots, the way she hits her back hand a little, not so much form but the way she runs into it...reminds me a little of hingis, also that forehand, she doesnt really hit through it sometimes, but its still pretty hard, but when she goes inside out, she catches it from the outside of the ball very similar to the way hingis did

"Talent does what it can; genius does what it must."-martina in a nutshell-
