TennisWorld received a field report on Martina Hingis from one of our spies in the high-level coaching ranks. The intel:
She is hitting the ball well enough to beat anyone, all the way up to the highest level. She's moving well, but has altered the footwork on her serve somewhat, striking the ball with her feet further apart. Her backhand is still superb, but she generates noticeably more power when she closes up and gets away from the open-stance stroke that seems to be the flavor-of-the-month.
