Stats That Would Surprise You!
With all of the talk about Martina Hingis, I thought I would share a cool stat with you about her.
Martina has won five Grand Slams:
'97 Australian Open
'97 United States Open
'98 Australian Open
'99 Australian Open
In those five Grand Slam victories, she played only six Top Ten players:
'97 AO - Spirlea
'97 W - Novatna
'97 UO - Davenport
'98 AO - Pierce
'99 AO - Pierce, Seles
Some surprising things about her Slams are that she faced #17 Fernandez and #22 Pierce in the SF and F of the '97 AO. At the '97 Wimbledon, she faced #57 Chladkova and #42 Kournikova in the QF and SF. She faced #66 Venus Williams in the F of the '97 UO. At the '99 AO, she played #29 Mauresmo in the F of the AO. These are some terribly easy draws compared to later years where she would battled Venus, Seles, and S.Williams in the QF of Slams.
