Smile SERGIO TACCHINI: Responds To Martina & Camp's Accusations

Friday May 24, 12:07 pm Eastern Time

Press Release

SOURCE: SERGIO TACCHINI

SERGIO TACCHINI Sends a Letter Before Action to Martina Hingis
Corporate Position in the Martina Hingis Case

MILAN, Italy, May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- With regards to the breaking news stories reported by several international media regarding the public declarations released by Miss Martina Hingis, her mother Melanie Molitor and her doctor Mr. Heinz Buhlmann, the SERGIO TACCHINI Company makes the following warning:

Such accusations do not correspond to the truth. There is no connection between the present medical condition of Martina Hingis and the shoes she was using four years ago. SERGIO TACCHINI states to Martina Hingis, Melanie Molitor and Heinz Bulhmann that they have to cease and desist from such wrong and misleading declarations. SERGIO TACCHINI would like to draw attention to the fact that false statements made publicly and damaging news regarding the Company, the quality of its products and its reputation, may lead to civil and criminal actions.

In any case, the Company cannot refrain from pointing out that Martina Hingis became the undisputed world leader in women's tennis using SERGIO TACCHINI shoes, winning her last Grand Slam tournament wearing SERGIO TACCHINI products.

As entertaining as the back-and-forth is, I have this feeling that they'd all be better off if a judge slapped a gag order on both parties until the various suits are settled.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

They are lyers. The same thing happened to Davide Sanguinetti's shoes at Del Ray Beach: They came apart! I will not wear ST ever. Good thing Martina now wears adidas.

I'm surprised Guga's feet arent knackered by Diadora shoes, a pair of diadora football boots knackered my acchilles tendon up and prevented me from going on trial to a number of football league clubs.

Hmmm...

Their math is off. Four years ago was 1998. Martina won her last slam in Jan. 1999, which is basically a little over 3 years. Sergio Tacchini can't have it both ways.

Was Martina wearing different shoes other than ST for AO '99? I know she was wearing the Tacchini black/white tennis dress, but I thought it odd that ST only mentions " ST products" when referring to Mart's last GS win.

Good for Sergio Tacchini. Melenie Molitor has made one tacky statement after another. Funny how fate works out after she said that Steffi's body was "physically spent." Who's body is physically spent now Meleanie?

Not surprising coming from a Williams' fan
Yeah fate could work against Venus, isn't she injury prone herself?

Yes, I believe she did. I remember that controversy back then too. I think Martina stopped wearing ST shoes even earlier than that (late '98) but I could be wrong.

And Venus fans are accused of turning all the boards into Venus boards? This is about Hingis, NOT Venus, but if you want to talk about Venus, neither Williams parent ever made any silly comments about Steffi being physically spent. Also if Venus did have to retire, she would never blame her shoes!

I guess she will never blame her shoes unless the shoes are the cause what a stupid statement to make.

Also, what do Martina's comments on Steffi have to do with anything?

I guess Anton will win the most stupid comments reward

Who is Mellenie?
