Hey people,

I hope that this isn't a duplicate thread (I haven't seen another one), but WTT is on ESPN 2 right now (11pm EST). They are going to show the Martina Hingis vs. Martina Navratilova matchup....

just a heads-up...

Hingis backhand... simply the best two hander I've ever seen

Serena Williams is not even at this competition and Mary Carillo still has to make a dig at her......

I was thinking the same thing. Even when Serena has nothing to do with a particular subject, Carillo can still find a way to make a reference to her.

Wow, Hingis still has amazing touch! Some of her passing shots against Nav were . The backhand was very sweet. The second serve was weak, and the forehand wasn't terribly impressive (she could have hit through the ball with more power). But I was really impressed! Martina's still a great mover around the court... it was fun to see her play again. Good job, girl.

It wasn't a dig at Serena. She was just mentioning what everybody has talked about...that she needs to get in better shape. BIG DEAL...

Hingis still has that amazing feel for the game. She's one of the smartest tennis players ever IMO. Put her against a power player though and it wouldn't be the same. She could do well on the tour but she would be a GS quarterfinalist and no better probably...

Thats true, but she could still do very well in doubles

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

Hingis is returning great. If she can improve that serve and her feet hold up she could make a serious return.

I think if Martina did come back, she could be top 30 again for sure. She'd just need to beef up the serve and hit through her shots a bit more. If she's healthy enough to play, she could be a threat on tour, because her court sense and quickness are still very much there. She looked so happy tonight, with that constant smile on her face .

I can't tell when Hingis is smiling or not. She does have that overbite of hers. I couldn't even tell if she was laughing for joy or in the pain at the 99' French Open.
