Question Is clay the only surface Martina can possiby beat Venus on, from now on

Not a bashing thread, but i was just thinking that Martina definatley will from now on have her best chances of beating venus when on a clay court, i mean on grass she has little or no chance of beating vee unless she played out of her mind and vee played poor, on hardcourts she would have a better shot but venus would have the advantage of faster courts and martina wouldnt be able to drag her into long rallies and coax more and more errors out of her and carpet would be a similar situation, really only on clay is where they would be evenly matches but vee has already showed she can beat martina on clay in a fairly easy match and another tight match what does every1 else think

Grassonkova.

We have to wait and see. I think she can beat her in any surface, but also Venus can beat Martina in any surface. Of course, Venus is the favourite on grass, but Martina has an advantage on rebound ace surface. Not many players have beat her in the Australian Open (since 1997 just Lindsay, Jennifer and Kim). There she beat Serena (QF) and Venus (SF) in 2001.

No.
Martina's early ball stroke play and excellent volley skills are more suited to fast courts.

I do think that Martina is just capable of beating Venus on any surface, in short.

Martina Hingis

definately on rebound ace and clay, Martina has a better chance, unless Venus is in the zone for the whole match.

Grass is too favoured to Venus' game. Their Wimbledon 2000 quarter final was probably the best ive ever seen Martina play, but it just wasnt quite enough.

fast hardcourts favour Venus too.

I thought this thread was mocking the other one by a Hingis fan until I actually read it

Because it's absolutely ridiculous.

No, they are both capable of beating the other on any surface...which is what makes the rivaly so interesting.

Really, don't even look at me...
