Hingis could win more slams than Davenport

I look at Martina Hingis and Lindsay Davenport and I never thought that when Davenport won the 2000 Australian Open final..that it would be her last major. However, in the past six long years..Lindsay has failed to lift the winner's trophy which is very surprising. I think Hingis can and will win slams. Now I am not saying hingis will win a slam this year..but I feel Hingis can win the French Open for sure. Hingis clay results always have been excellent and with her unique game she can do well. If Hingis does not win a slam this year..she will win one next year for sure. As for Lindsay Davenport I really feel last year was her last big shot at winning a major. Now of course..she could surprise and win Wimbledon or the US OPEN this year...but...with all the talent on the tour..don't count on it..I just feel that Lindsay Davenport has a mental barrier..first it was with the Williams Sisters, then she got more problems with the Belgians, and now the Russians have come along..I think Lindsay's time to win majors has passed. In order for Lindsay to win a slam now..I think something really special will have to happen. Sure, Lindsay is very consistent and she will win WTA tour titles..but no one cares who wins Tokyo or Indian Wells..at the end of the day its about winning slams. And surprisingly Lindsay only has three..

I don't agree with this thread. I think that Lindsay has a better chance than Hingis to win slams. Martina is blessed with amazing talent and her comeback is something to take seriously but however she dosen't hit the ball nearly hard enough on her ground strokes and serve to challenge at the majors. Lindsay was very unfortunate not to win a slam in 04 and 05 but in the future I would give her a better shot in the major tournaments except on clay of course

Hingis ALREADY has won more slams than Davenport. I don't see either of them winning a major again but i'd love to be proven wrong.

I guess the thread starter needs to do more research first before making such threads

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'll be charitable and interpret the thread title as meaning more additional slams. I actually think Davenport has the edge in that respect, but history will tell.

I think at this point Lindsay has the edge in winning another slam, but that certainly doesn't count Hingis out. This year is probably toooooo early, but in the upcoming years she definately has big chances at Oz and Rg, and even the US Open. That's not saying she WILL win one, but in two years I think Hingis has a better chance then Lindsay.

I do believe Davenport leads Hingis head to head and Davenport is the better player.

No question, Martina has a better chance ...not to mention many more of them. I love Lindsay as well but her time is limited now and I think it is very difficult for her body to hold up an entire 2 weeks...which is the main reason she hasn't won a GS in the past few years.

Also, Martina has already had the Slightly better career and she would probably already have a few more GS title's if she hadn't missed 14 GS's since 2002 RG (which she probably would have won at least 2X by now)...but I think it will become even better within the next 5 years. Don't get me wrong though, people can continue to doubt Hingis all they want ...less pressure for her, P

I think he means Hingis could end up with more slams than Davenport, which didn't seem so likely in 2000.

I'd back Hingis to end up with more by the end of their careers. She's 2 ahead now, and Lindsay isn't going to hang around too much longer.

I think both have a chance, but Hingis probably has MORE chances, because she will probably play longer now than Lindsay will. I think if Davenport does not win a slam this year, she will seriously consider hanging up her rackets. I think ironically, Lindsay's best chance should have come last year, with the Williams sisters not being on form MOST of the time, and with the Belgian sisters injured much of the time and the top Russians struggling, and no Hingis to boot.

Right now, the Belgians are pretty much back and up to speed, Mauresmo is obviously playing her best tennis ever and the Russians, at least some of them, are looking good again, all spells trouble for Lindsay. And now there is Hingis, too, who is probably only going to get better as the year rolls on. And Hingis is both hungry and now even much more of a fan favorite. My guess is, Martina will get a minimum of one more slam singles title before she hangs it up and maybe more than that.

I am not optimistic about Lindsay's chances any longer.

It really doesn't matter who has more, If Hingis ends her career with, say, 7, and Lindsay finishes with (prays!) 5, then I'll be happy...

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena
