Question So who can beat Martina Hingis in Paris?

I guess I'm just excited, nervous and anxious. Let's face it, she'll sail through the early rounds.

But who can REALLY beat her?

Justine.
Amélie.
Nadia.
Sveta?

I think that's about it. But Martina has a great chance to beat them all too especially Amélie and Nadia who can be headcases. And Sveta who's very inconsistent still.

I guess Justine is the biggest hurdle for her. But Justine hasn't been making that much noise on the clay this year compared to the years when she won RG?

there's no one called choko

and yes, justine didnt win any clay warmups. but count her out at your own perils

anyone from the list of justine, amelie, kim, sveta, nadia, elena (did i miss anyone? ) can beat her. who knows? some player you dont expect can beat anyone on any day.

yes, martina had a great lead up to RG. yes, she's one of the main contenders. but sometimes, players can go into a GS with crappy lead up results and still do well/win. so do not count them out

martina has a great chance to beat them all, just as they all have a great chance to beat martina

in that kind of tournaments, all the 127 could beat Martina one day

Her victory in Rome was impressive, the come back is impressive but she s not the fave to win the whole stuff, by far...

We're talking about Martina Hingis here. She who hands out bagels and breadsticks till the semis of the every slam she enters.

Thanks.

I think JHH, Mauresmo, Clijsters, Petrova, Kuznetsova, Dementieva and Venus Williams can all beat Hingis, just like she probably can beat them.
I don't think Sharapova can beat Hingis on clay, that is why I didn't include her in my list ...

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 think I have to repeat :

the win in Rome and all others tournaments are impressive but bagels won t come so easily, were not back in 1997

Depending of the draw, I can see her in 1/4 or maybe to the semis, but that'll be really hard

Last bagel in a Hingis's match was the one she received against Venus! , but she managed to win after, I know
