Who would win a Graf-Hingis exhibition match?

As both have beaten Sabby soundly (although Sabatini was far worse today than last September in Berlin against Graf) that would be an interesting exhibition now.

IMO, Graf still would be to fast and powerful for Hingis. Maybe in some years when Steffi has 2 more kids Martina could play a match toe-to-toe with Graf. But then of course we have to consider the psychological edge Graf always will have. And Hingis isn't becoming younger as well ...


What do you think?

Calimero is so upset that Hingis won today that he felt the need to speak against Hingis in another useless thread pathetic, isn't it

By the way Hingis won by a much bigger margin than Graf vs Sab.

I was so that I had to rewatch the FO 99 final Graf-Hingis (June 5th, 1999) again right away!

And Sabby probably let Graf win becuase it was a match to celebrate Graf having a court named after her...

YES!

Because I'm frightened at the thought that Sesil could emulate Graf's 22 slams ....
