Hingis said "If I had Maria's serve there'd be no doubt i'd be back"

The puts into question all this "i'm not fit to play because my ankles hurt nonsense, and sounds more like she doesn't want to be pounced on from the top fifty on up.


I think she's more than capable of making a sucessful comeback, and I'm still hoping she will, but for right now she said she's keeping that a secret.

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

What it sounds like is obsession And when she said that while she was commentating, it was said in jest, while she was laughing, with the focus on Maria's serve, not about Hingis making a return.

"obsession?" she's obsessed w/Maria's serve? And she said it after MJ asked her about WTT, and any possibility of a return to the WTA...she said it was "..a secret" which implies she hasn't ruled it out the followed it up w/the comment on having Maria's serve which meant if i had a serve like that, it'd be no question...

I'm hoping the intepretive skills of the board isn't a reflection of the gen. population, because that would truly be another indication of the dumbing down of society.

Yeah maybe like Venus she doesn't want to go a year without beating a top 10 player or be a tennis player ranked in the lower half of the top ten for the rest of her career .

Unlike Venus she hasn't got the guts to stick it out!

Yeah, but the thing is, even if she were half the player Venus is, she still wouldn't ranked in the top 10 because at this point, she can't even beat anyone ranked in the top 100.

See? It's quite clear that DA FOREHAND has a Hingis hatred obsession. She's even in his signature! To make it clear to everyone yet again, the quote in the title of this thread is taken totally out of context, she was clearly joking around.

Oh phooey on Hingis.

We real tennis fans know Hingis can still play and compete but she is a coward and afraid to lose. Justine revamped her serve andit seems Elena D is working on hers.. Hingis can as well.

She is just lazy and not a true competitor.

Marlene beat her and she lost all hope, this is not a real champ.


In other words Hingis hates to lose more than the LOVE of the game.

If you read your own signature carefully, it only means you're a coward.
Think about it !
