Raymond and Stosur get on their knees and pray every night...

...for Martina Hingis not to return to doubles full time.

How cool would it be if Martina and Justine, who are told to be hitting partners, formed a doubles team and played in the slams!

Re: Raymond and Stosur get on their knees and pray every night...

Honestly Martina hasn't looked that great with her netplay like in the past.
Justine on the other hand has looked great.

Justine is really not that great a doubles player. Hingis would be better off with someone like Petrova or Clijsters.

Hingis would do better with a better doubples player. I think Hingis/Kuznetsova or Hingis/Petrova would be great. Wannabe - she hasnt look great up at net in singles, but doubles IMO would be a completely different story.

Re: Raymond and Stosur get on their knees and pray every night...

kuznetsova could complete a Martina Slam

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Re: Raymond and Stosur get on their knees and pray every night...

I actually agree that she needs to work on her net game a little, but I think that it would only take her a couple of months of dedicated work to again be the best doubles player on the planet.

Don't forget, she won the AO mixed doubles title with Bhupati.

So, if and when doubles again becomes a priority with her, look out.

the question is how much would that affect her singles comeback/
is she capable of "sweeping" tournies again?

Re: Raymond and Stosur get on their knees and pray every night...

let alone Hingis, i think Raymond/Stosur can't even match the greatness of Clijsters/Sugiyama.

Re: Raymond and Stosur get on their knees and pray every night...

Um, Martina Hingis can play with ANYBODY and win. Shoot, she even won matches with Seles. But I say Anna trains for a little bit and then the two of them return to doubles.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Hell, Hingis carried Lucic to a SLAM title.
