Hingis vs. Henin-Hardenne (both at her prime)

Justine would beat her? I do think so

EDITED : Marina is back, so let's see what happens

You really have a lot to your arguments. But yes i tend to agree with u, I think Justine's power would be enough.

Myskina * Henin-Hardenne * Zvonerava

Davenport - Dementieva

Hingis of 97 through say 00/01?! Hmmm....was vulnerable to power, but not to JUSTINES kinda power. You are acting like Martina was moonballer.....Justine hits hard but she doesnt hit Lindsay, Venus, Serena-like hard. Martina without the ankle-injuries would have held her own with Justine....and then itd be like a Myskina vs Justine match-up, but Hingis as a better Myskina..think Hingis would win the most of those matches.

Always bet on black!

Obviously Hingis.
In her prime, she could stand her own against Venus and Serena and Lindsay. Justine, as good as she is, was not good as Hingis was in her prime.
Justine does not have a fantastic return to punish Hingis like Serena, Lindsay, and Venus do.

Hingis would beat Justine 6-2, 6-2 or better. I think Justine "power" is overrated!! Serena, Venus and Lindsay were beating Martina because they not only hit the ball hard, but they placed them well, painted the lines, and their serves won a lot of free points. Justine does not possess any of these tools. All around Justine's has a good game, great shots, but nothing spectacular, and this is what it took to beat Martina Hingis. It's easy for a player to look brilliant as she dismantles the lesser players, but more telling is how she performs against the top players, and Justine has not performed well against the top players. Against top players Justine has no real weaponds!!! Maritna would beat her easily, no doubt!!

Justine would definitely win, but could be in 3 sets.
Something like 4-6 6-2 6-2

I think it would be very tough match for both and I cant really call this one - though Hingis playing her best magical tennis would be hard to beatby anyone

Tennis / Music / Film

Hingis would win! Justine would try to do her routine cheating attempts, but this time they won't work. Hingis would beat her fair and square!
