SERENA WILLIAMS vs. Martina Hingis: Who is greater?

Martina Hingis won five slams and was a fine doubles player, but seemed to hit a wall when the Williams came on the tour. SERENA WILLIAMS whipped Hingis at the 1999 U.S. Open when she was only 17 and Hingis was supposed to be the best player in the world.

Since then, SERENA has won five more GS titles and has won the Grand Slam by holding all four titles at one time and having the achievement called a SERENA Slam, no less.

In the process of attaining those incredible achievements, SERENA, along with a bum foot, was instrumental in running Hingis off the WTA tour and into early retirement.

So, in my opinion, SERENA is the greater of the two future Hall of Fame players.

Yup, I concur Serena single handedly ran Martina into early retirement - and she knew Venus wanted a piece of that azz so she just jetted.

Martina Hingis of course. Bob Larson said so, so it must BE so.

Serena of course.
Serena has more impressive results.
More slams(singles). She has a GRAND SLAM in all surfaces both in singles AND doubles.
Serena also has a leading head to head against Chucky.
Serena had a lot tougher road to winning her slams than Chucky did.
Serena is still on the tour, Chuck's is not.

Sorry, but Martina Hingis will always be in the hall of fame. She was the youngest to ever hold a grandslam, and Serena will never surpass Martina's weeks at #1. Not to mention all the doubles titles Martina has!

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

You must mean US Open 1997, Lipton 1997, San Diego 1997, Indian Wells 1998, San Diego 1999, Australian Open 2001.

Martina sure whipped Venus in all those matches.

I must add, that I am surprised that you would refer to Venus as a "fake diva"

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

If I am being objective, Serena is greater than Martina. No question about it.
