Report on Martina Hingis training: She is hitting the ball well enough to beat anyone

Our Eyes Are Everywhere

Posted 12/15/2005 @ 12:04 PM

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.

That's what we got.

Marti
Good enough to beat anyone is pretty high praise. But how will that power hold up in a match situation?

2016 Title(s):
Suicide: Strasbourg

We will see if she can beat the best players at AO. For now, I don't believe

Maria Sharapova & Svetlana Kuznetsova

Lindsay Davenport | Mary Pierce | Amelie Mauresmo

It's good to know she has the strokes!! We'll just see how long it takes her to get 'match tough.'

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

sounds like good news !

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

I saw her hit some shots during her exhibtion with Kourni and she seemed to be striking the ball VERY well.
