espn is reason martina loses

everytime espn shows a tournament martina plays, she loses. I can't remember the last time espn showed martina winning a tournament. Last 3 years aussie open, last 3 years indian wells, advanta championships a couple of year ago, acura classic a couple of years ago. Gosh, its like a jinx or something. Its been like 2-3 years since martina last won a tournament that espn has shown the finals of. Hmm, when was that last tournament? Could it be espn?

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

I dont really mind her losing this match. It was ONE match. And Daniela played better, and deserved it. Hopefully Hingis will do well at Nasdaaq.

It does seem to work out that way a lot. It's the curse of Pam shriver sending all that negative energy down there. She won Tokyo and Sydney but of course I did not get to see those.

Oh Martina .

Of course, if you're right then I'm going to email them and ask them to screen every match between Martina and Monica from now on .

The last time she won on ESPN was the 2000 Canadian Open over Serena Williams.

@KART---who's the beautiful woman as your avatar?...sexy!!!!!!


Martina needs to boycott any tourney that ESPN is covering.....she should play only USopen and wimbly and the finals that cbs/nbc carry....who else carries tennis in the US?


I know martina will get her chance again because it's setting itself up that the power hitters will cancel themselves out eventually.....before it used to be the finesse and thinking player now its power hitters. The game is evilving and Martina needs to be patient. She came back too soon and should have worked at mastering her game and adjusting. Her performance today is a sign that she still can get the power hitter but she always want to play their game...and that's her downfall. If Justine can control Jen and give Venus trouble then Martina can also. If Martina can beat Monica, and Monica can beat Jen then Martina can beat Jen..

Martina will master the power hitters then it'll be more interesting...I'm happy she lost because her confidence level won't be too high before Roland Garros. It showed her that she needs to still work harder and this could be the incentive for a Venus-Martina Nasdaq final....hopefully she can come back and be part of the top elite like she belongs.

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

LucasARG, you've posted in nearly every thread about Martina Hingis, and each time you've had something negative to say. They aren't even opinions most of the time. What is your problem?

I know you all are talking about her singles matches, but I will say that ESPN did show her doubles final with Anna Kournikova at the AO 2002, and they did win that match! Just trying to be positive!

ESPN responsible for Martina's loss?

hmm

I know ESPN is shite and seems to think that 'world sports coverage' means '22 hours of continious Baseball' but in this case it really is pushing it to put the blame for Martina's poor performance in the final onto the hapless ESPN.

btw Maccardel
