Hantuchova/Hingis: Who has more pressure on her to win the match?
In today's final, both players obviously will want to win very badly; however, who is going to be more effected by the outcome?
First, we have the marvelous champion Hingis who may be a litte stressed about a new wave of players dealing with her game. Both of her match losses were against players (Serena/JenCap) who have always determined the outcome of the match whenever they play Hingis. However, lurking in the shadows are the likes of Bedanova, who represents the new guarde, took a set at love from her. For the past three years, the "big babe brigade" has had their way with Hingis in important tournaments. Is it imperative that Hingis win this today in order to maintain the fear factor that she has established. I could imagine that Justine and Clijsters will be watching this match closely as they see themselves as heir apparent to #1.
Hantuchova is having a nice tournament, but in actuality, this isn't our first time hearing about her(Isn't she 18? A baby in everyday life, but solid for tennis on the woman's side). Anybody who saw her in the Canadian against JenCap last year knows that she is capable of coming close. She's taken a set off of Venus and has given Mauresmo all that she can handle before as well. However, this is the biggest final of Hantuchova's career. Regardless of what her soaring ranking says, we all know that it's the actual skill and outcome of the matches against the elite that go into striking fear. In order for Daniela to establish herself as a force to be reckoned with, is this the one match that she has to win?
