Should Martina Hingis Win Roland Garros.....

Should Hingis win the French Open what would her ranking probably go up to?

About #8 or so?

And because her ranking is #14 at what round should she first expect to see some considerably threatening top 10 players? Not until the Quarter Finals?

How many points does a player get from winning one of the Grand Slam tournaments?

Thanks.

P.S. Do you all consider Martina Hingis to be a good grass court player? With players like V. Williams, Davenport, Sharapova and Mauresmo does she stand much of a chance of progressing far at Wimbledon?

Thanks.

700 points for winning would make her #9 or so

She is poised to meet one of the top 4 seeds (Amelie, Kim, Nadia, Maria) in the 4th round though

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Hopefully she encounters Sharapova, Hingis wouldn't have much of a problem against her on clay.

Unfortunately if you see Marcus' statistics in my thread about RG success after winning Rome then history is not on Martina's side.

As long as she doesn't have to face Henin-Hardenne until at least the semis then I don't think she'd have a problem progressing far in the draw.

In my opinion, Henin-Hardenne would have to be the only player Hingis doesn't really have a serious chance against *not yet anyway*.

If Venus doesn't win it, then I'd like to see Hingis win it. (A few years ago I would have killed myself fro making such a statement about Hingis!)

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Amelie, Kim, Nadia or Maria....wow. One of these girls will have the fate of crossing Hingis's destiny as many on this board claim. Hmmmm....whoever Hingis meets within these four....its for sure to be a bittersweet defeat (although I would like Hingis to meet Sharapova on clay...it's better for her chances now.)

Anyways, I still think Martina is an underdog. One big one doesn't cut it to become a favorite. This year's RG should be Nadia's, Amelie's, Justine's to win.......if Martina is going to win this, she's going to have to spit out her best stuff like in Berlin and Rome and more.

It's funny that women's tennis is so unpredictable now while it's almost sure it'd be a Rafa-Roger final this year at RG.
Martina certainly stands a chance, but she definitely needs some luck there.

if she si #14 now, and Lindsay is out- Mary is unlikely- so Hingis might be seeded 12 and so miss the top 4 seeds which would give her a great chance of reaching the 1/4s at least

I don't see why it should matter who martina is playing in hte 4th rd. she is capabale of taking out any of them including justine. She is playing like a top fiver now, you only need to look at the race and she is right up there.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

i highly doubt this. sharapova is hot when it comes to a grand slam.
