This explains why she has beaten Kuznetsova and Sharapova, both in straight sets this year. She can beat those two, Mauresmo, Dementieva and Petrova. I'm not sure about the belgians, but I think she can beat Justine. It's Kim IMO who she'll have the most trouble against.

Re: Hingis will be overpowered in madrid by the other 7

I don't think so. I think Martina is prepared for the YEC. I really hope she'll go for the serve and volley route. Does anyone else remember Filderstadt 2000? She played and won her 4 matches (63 30 ret vs Henin, 62 61 to Van Roost, 61 60 vs Sanchez-Vicario, 60 63 vs Clijsters) with an AMAZING net play. She served and volleyed all the time, even on second serve. Ok, this was a different Martina, and Henin and Clijsters are different players now, they're champions, BUT do you think she could produce once again a perfomance like that? Is it wishful thinking from me?

Re: Hingis will be overpowered in madrid by the other 7

If the Hingis who played thei first half of the year comes out and plays she has a shot at winning the entire tourney. If the second half plays she will win some rounds and lose some rounds. I think Justine and Momo will give her the most trouble.

She can do well, but I doubt she'll win the whole tournament.

She will get overpowered by Sharapova, Henin-Hardenne, etc.

They've got the POWER!

HINGIS has got the BRAIN, and GAME CRAFT!

You can always speculate, but the truth is still to be released!

Re: Hingis will be overpowered in madrid by the other 7

Hingis not playing like she did earlier this year is only part of the problem The others either suit up well against her game, or they've managed to figure her game out (e.g. Sharapova).

It's too much to expect Martina to play like she did before the semi-retirement so the best I'm hoping for is a good performance and some wins. It'll give her confidence a bit of a boost going into the Aussie Open

The others have "game craft". The only difference between Martina and them is that she's a defensive player and has to rely on it. The others are all aggressive baseliners and because of the power they don't need to do more to construct a point.

Exactly. She's the best volleyer in the game. And her serve is now better than then, She definitely will kick some if she SV's.
Unfortunately she hasn't done that often enough nowadays.

Even if ur the best volleyer in the game... it wouldn't matter if you get overpowered and never get to go up to the net...
