She made the SF 5 straight years between 1997 and 2001. With better luck, she should have been champ at least 1 year

Agreed!

Jennifer came back at 25 and won her first SLAM ever. Hingis can win RG. It's all mental for her at RG. Yet when your playing tennis from age 9 to 22 you kinda need a break. She was BURNT OUT! Now she is back at her job.

I am excited to see her back. She wasn't my favorite but I like what she has to offer the game of tennis.

Martina is a woman who should have at least a few more slams...

should have beaten Graf at the FO...
should have beaten Capriati at the AO...
maybe could have beaten Majoli at the FO...


hopefully she'll make up for lost time this year!

wasn't Sharapova seeded #13 at Wimbledon?

Like many other players who should have won more slams but didn't - for e.g. the ones that make up your name - Lindsay and Monica

Well she SHOULD have won it in 1999. But a major brain cramp at 64 54 and Graf stormed back. Although, Graf picked up her game amazingly. That would have changed history. She would hav ebeen half way tot he Slam in 99, she would own 6 majors, and while we never know, I dont think she woul dhave lost first round Wimbledon that year.

I am just interested in seeing how the French crowd treats her.

She didn't win Roland Garros then, she wont win it now.
I dont want to see Hingis with more than 5 slams anyway.

Child, if Hingis in her form never wins a slam again, neither will the Williams sisters. So you better hope for better things from Ms. Hingis.

Divas: Seles, Sharapova, Muguruza
Pas de Quatre:
Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Coppélia
