I know the reason why Hingis lost early in slams this year....

Exactly the same thing happened to Andre Agassi in 1998. He started the year ranked 140 and returned to the top 15 by the end of 1998. He spent all of 1998 trying to climb the rankings and he consequently played each tournament like it was a grand slam, and played too many tournaments. He wore himself out and didn't peak for the slams, he lost early in all the slams in 1998 despite winning 6 tournaments. Then in 1999 he won the French Open, made the final of Wimbledon and won the US Open. He no longer concerned himself with winning every first tier tournament and he made sure he peaked for the slams.

This year Hingis didin't peak for the slams. She concerned herself with climbing the rankings and did a great job of that. However she played her best tennis too randomly and not in the slams. Next year she won't be chasing a top 10 ranking, cos she already will be in the top 10 and can therefore focus entirely on the slams. She can stay fresh close to the slams and she will make semis and finals in the slams and have a chance to win them. 2006 is the year she got her feet wet and probably reach top 6. 2007 will be her year to win slams.

Yeah, it's because of her not hitting the ball big enough when another big hitter is hitting consistently.

She was weak because she played too much, and at the wrong times.

She couldn't handle the mighty power of Razzano or Sugiyama.

Exactly. If she had played Razzano in Montreal it would been a Hingis victory. Its all about scheduling and also reading your body better. She may not have had the slam success but she's a top 10 and maybe even top 5 player in 2006 so next year its all about the slams.

She didn't play too much! She played 15 tournaments, Mauresmo played 18 tournaments and she made Great performance in GS ,winning Wimbledon and AO. In general Martina didn't play a lot more than the other girls in the top 10.

I agree. She could rally past 10 balls it seemed.

Huh? I think you are talking about the last 12 months!? This year, Hingis played 16 tournaments, and Mauresmo played 13 (plus Fed Cup), US Open included, so of course Hingis played more than Mauresmo.
I think, though, that Hingis only played too much at the beginning of the year (Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, Tokyo, Doha, Dubai, Indian Wells and Key Biscayne all within the first 3 months...).

I think she'll win the Australian and French Opens next year.
