Question Did Hingis congratulate Jen on her OZ win?

I am sorry, I don`t wanna start any fight.
But shouldn`t you congratulate a player who won a Grand Slam in your speech? I watched this great final many times now and heard the speech, but couldn`t hear the word "Congratulation" in Martina`s words.

Don't know didn't see the ceremony. But if she didn't, maybe the loss for her was so devastating that she couldn't think straight. I know she walked away crying, because she let it slip away.

Don't know exactly, but she did say that Jennifer was just too good today, and then went on to mention about the Heineken. In all honesty, considering how distraught Martina must have felt, as a Jenn fan, I would very easily forgive her if she hadn't said anything straight after the match. Seeing them embrace each other after the match and the jokes they shared during the post-match speeches, reminded me that they hold each other in great respect. Any slip-up from Martina would have just been due to emotion. These two do get on, remember they played doubles together at the last Slam.

Personally, I thought under the circs, Martina gave a great speech

Martina could have been nicer in her speech, but who cares about that? Not even Jenny...

Lola, Martina actually did congratulate her after the speech.
When they were holding their trophies for the photos she told Jennifer that she deserved, Jen denied with a smile (modesty) and Martina told her that she had player better in the key points.

That's what I got from watching the tape over and over reading their lips (if you don't believe me, please be my guest)

I thought Martina said something along the lines of "you were too good for me today, congratulations" in her speech.

Hingis showed a lot of class--considering the brutal conditions and having match points, she could have retired and not finished at all.

Martina gave a great speech, especially under those circumstances.

She said Jennifer was too good, yada yada yada.

Which, in its way, takes a bigger person to say than a simple "Congrats".

At least, I think so.
