Hingis goes dominatrix on reporter: "I didn't learn from Federer, he learned from me"

Martina Hingis: The flame that burned twice as bright and twice as long - CNN

Starting at 3:40

He asked her what she had learned from Federer (when Federer himself said he grew up idolizing her) and Legend was like



She basically went full 50 shades on him: "I always say I taught him how to win his first big tournament" & "He learned from me"

You don't teach Legend, Legend teaches you.



Let's hope he learned his lesson.

Too much PR and sanitized interviews in sorts today.

Hingis always spoke her mind, whether you liked it or not, and never hid her ego or arrogance.

You gotta use catchy headlines if you want people to read your threads.

I'd be good at making tabloid articles.

Legend is entertaining and spicy. Federer is just a boring pusher.

Happy Legend did that. I love Fed, but these clueless interviewers always try to force everyone to lick his ass.

She's not the Legend for no reason. Federer is the GOAT, but wasn't a very well thought question from the interviewer.

Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.

Isn't it funny how she always seemed to be the type to give people like him confidence.

He abused her, and all her intelligence to create himself. A person living as an alter ego of the venom that she spit when she was at her most vulnerable.

She created tennis for us, lest we forget.

Legend
Federer has never shied away from talking about his appreciation of Hingis btw. In a recent interview they asked him what's the last match that he stayed up late/woke up early to watch and he said it was one of Martina's USO finals. He called her Legend too
