Actually, I think when Martina first revealed her early season schedule (Sydney, Melbourne, Tokyo, Middle East, IW, Miami), people were rather concerned. And in the past, people were critical of how Martina was #1 despite her lack of GS success by winning lots of Tier Is/IIs. So I don't really think it's a double standard.
We just love Martina more than Nads.

It's absurd to compare Nadia and Hingis. Hingis is on a comeback trying depserately to get her ranking up. Also, Hingis has been bounced early in several tournaments because she's drawn a big gun early (Sydney, Miami, Warsaw).
