Post Who will have the better season? Anna or Martina

Ok their is this feeling in the air regarding Anna. It seems like she is on a roll to win her first tourney. (which I think she will) <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> And it also seems that Hingis MAY have trouble defending this year. Anyhow who do u think will have the beter season?

Oops I meant to write better not BETER.. lol <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

You know I don't know about this answer yet. I mean one can never count out Hingis but something also tells me that Anna is about to breakout and show some quality results this season. Sheesh I need to think on this one. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> What do u fans think?

Also GO WTA and HAPPY HAPPY days are here again. I love it when the tour begins. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

For starters - hingis has a MAJOR advantage over Anna, in that she will be seeded in every event she enters. Not only that, but she will be seeded high. Currently top 4, if her Oz season doesn't go well (or Kims and Serena's go extremely well) then she is still a top 8 seed.

Anna will have the possiblity of facing top players in early rounds untill she gets her ranking up - which could take a while, no matter how well she plays.

Furthermore - Hingis reaches the semi finals or further in slams about 80% of the time (I'm too lazy to check the exact stats over the past few years). I can't imagine that she will all of a sudden start doing much worse than that.

And I can't see Anna, just yet, consistently getting that far a slams, especially with not being seeded.

So I feel Hingis will have a much better year.

That said, I hope to see Anna have a good year, win a couple titles, and get a couple good wins over top players as well.

Hingis at 50% and on one leg still trumps Miss Kournikova-Pornikova. I like Anna despite my flip remark, but come on, there is no comparison between these two. Just the fact that Anna has yet to win ANY event makes a comparison laughable.

Cool

Well just think if Anna gets this win and gets her confidence on a high note that she can soar to new heights. (of course she already stands tall in her high-heel shoes though) But seriously if Hingis continues on her low confidence feel and Anna on a high note then who knows.

P.S. I am surprised nobody has yet to say that they will both TIE, considering that they play doubles together. LOL <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

anyhow I voted for Hingis. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I think if Hingis can beef up that serve a little bit, and maybe serve-volley a bit more, she could keep up with the "big babes". Everyone says she needs to play a power game and hit the gym but I disagree - Hingis doesn't have the stature for it. Plus, she's too smart to be a baseliner.

As for Anna, I think once she wins her first title, the weakest part of her game will improve... her mentality. The talent is there, but the mentality is not. Once she can improve the mentality, she will be a legit contender at the major tournaments.

I dont see a comparison between them. Martina is still a TOP player while Anna is still strugling to be with the TOP.

Why dont we do it between Venus or Anna??? Come on, give Martina some respect!!!!!

Are they entered in OZ Dawn? A Hingis-Anna vs. The "you know who" sisters would be a match made in heaven. In 1998 or so the sisters won in a slam final 8-6 in the third after Anna and Martina had at least one match point.

No comparoson between the two at all.<br />Martina is one of the best tennis players in history while Anna is just beautiful at the moment.

I think I just needs some some respect for Martina Hingis for someone to create this kind of thread.

What If I created, Who is better? Venus or someone in the rank 25 and below? What would you feel? GET REAL!!!!!!!!
