Can Hingis ever beat a William's sister, again?

She hasn't topped one of them since the Aussia Open in 2001 (where she took 2 out), do you think she'll ever do it again?

I think a mental complex may have set in, she had a poor Venus on the ropes last week and blew it

Also, is that Russian girl's surname pronounced Chak vet at-say?

Chak-vet-dat-say I think

And...Hingis needs way more confidence if she wants to win against the williams sister again. In her match against Venus she was barely going for the lines, rather she was playing it safe hoping for Venus to make the mistakes. She needs to play to win! Not play and hope her opponents lose :cry:

Venus was very crippled in the 3rd set, sometimes hardly being able to walk...yet Martina doesn't use her drop shots or move Venus around the court much, only hitting high loopy balls, it was quite sad

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

Yes. It was only one meeting and besides, she's already beaten Davenport and Sharapova since her return to the tour. Serena and Venus may still dominate her but that doesn't mean that Hingis won't defeat at some point in the future.

I can say with a fair amount of confidence that Martina Hingis cannot beat Serena Williams right now.

Of course she can, she needs more confidence though.

If Pironkova, Sun, Jidkova, Raymond, Craybas, Golovin, Farina Elia, Schiavone and Hantuchova can do it... why not Hingis?

Elena Dementieva... Golden Girl !

Well she only plays 1 match against then till her return and it was a very close match. She got geme to beat anyone, but the problem is that the williams sisters never give up and keep fighting till the end and Martina has some problems to end her matches

True.

And that became a certain fact when Martina
stated after that she was hoping Venus would miss.

The Sisters will always miss but will make many of those
shots as well and unless one goes after them, they'll always
come up short.

Martina needs a change of mentality.
Not to mention, working on that serve.

Wheather you call it simply confidence or
arrogance, both Venus & Serena have it in spades!

How could Venus be crippled and barely able to walk and on the very next day, play another match, lose and say her legs were giving her absolutely no problems?

Martina's issues with Venus right now are clearly all mental. If she could get beyond that, then she could be beating her.

In Serena's current form, alot of players could probably beat her, Martina included.
