At the very least, she would have to shoot two of Ame, JHH, Nadia and her semifinal opponent. That would do it. Vice Pres Dick Cheney is available to give lessons on how to shoot someone accidently.

Well... without relying on the poor performances of Elena, Kim and Nadia she'd have to win the whole thing. Finals may be enough if her opponent isn't one of those players.

I would think Martina may prefer to do it by beating her opponents on the tennis court rather than shooting them though... it might be tough for her, lol.

Play with confidence and take chances on her serve. She CAN serve harder but seems to NOT do this during her big matches. USE the entire court and her entire arsenal. Step into the court and move her opponents around.

Re: What Does Hingis Have to Do to Make Top 5?

She definitely needs 2 serve BETTER! she needs 2 hit her groundies with more authority rather than just put the ball back in play & rally it out until the opponent makes an UF error, she needs 2 place the ball well & move her opponent around which what she is good at, use her court sense & tatics & not 2 feel the heat against the top guns of women's tennis.

all of these things she needs 2 do consistently. cannot stress this enough ppl

Re: What Does Hingis Have to Do to Make Top 5?

first thing is more confidence in her self to be honest.....i dont know if she still believes that her skills are good enough to topple the best of em

rightly so....because todays game has more power...which is also something she needs to work on......

probably she can be more aggressive along with her touchplay game and can mix it up better.

I'm not young enough to know everything.

true. plus the power is a huge factor in her game that needs some attention 2or otherwise she could be out of the top 10 next year (doesn't mean that it's gonna happen of course - i believe she will stay in the top 10 for at least another year).

Be Agg-ressive. Be Be Agg-ressive.

Or something like that. Heh.

Believe me, I love Marti. And if she plays like she is capable of playing, she will shock the world. We just have to wait to see.

Re: What Does Hingis Have to Do to Make Top 5?

She is gonna have to hope many of the others are having a bad day. Just don't think she has got the stuff on this particular surface to do any damage against these particular players.

But I am one that says never say never........
