I don't think why it should have changed, the same with martina and lindsay. no reason why martina shoul beat one of them
This is no sense.
Hingis in fact has beaten Mauresmo easily at the Australian Open 99 Final 6-2 6-3 for example, and a some staight setters GS cup 99 7-6 6-2 and 7-5 6-2 at Moscow 2000 and Amelia Island 2001. Yes she won the last 2 matches against Hingis, but that does not means that she ended up being the better one. :retard: Its 7-4 the head to head.
Anyway Martina does not needs to beat Mauresmo, would be another amazing win of course, but she does not need to beat the best player at the moment to prove anything. She already proved that she is playing really well, upsetting players all over the place, going up in the rankings so fast.
She already beat a player that knows her game well and has played in the past, like Schiavone who is playing the best tennis of her life at this point.
About the Sharapova match last week, well it can happen, i happened that Maria was playing well, Hingis did not play that well, but that can happen, Maria is a top player, and the better player on the day won, and more so Maria beat Davenport 6-1 6-3 after losing the first set in the semis, so that was a good indication of how well she was playing.
