:: Martina Hingis funny quotes ::

-"When I throw my raquet it helps me concentrate. It's just the way I am. It's better than to keep it inside."

-"Favorite food? I'm very simple. I just eat everything that comes on the table, right now especially. When I was younger, I didn't like many things, but yesterday we went to eat Chinese, and Japanese I like; Italian, whatever".

- "I wish he had broken both hands" - after Marc Rosset lost the Swiss team the Hopman Cup when he punched an advertising board.

-"It was just like a formula one car " - on Brenda Schultz-McCarthy`s world record serve against Hingis in Australia.

-During a coin toss once, Hingis tweaked Davenport by saying, " Do you want me to serve or break you? ''

-After playing the pregnant Tami Jones at the 1997 U.S Open: " I'm going to face two opponents in one time "

-Her good luck charm: " I have a little cow bell from Switzerland. When I carry my bags, you can hear it sometimes a little bit. That's it "

-" Sometimes when you face Steffi, especially like two years ago, I didn't even want to go to Wimbledon because I saw the draw, first round Steffi. That wasn't very lucky for me. I was like 19 in the world and I had to play her first round, especially you know that on Thursday already. It's like, "Why do I have to practice? I don't even want to go there."

-"Maybe next year I`ll play in the mixed doubles " Her acceptance speech at the Australian Open 1997 after winning singles and doubles.

-"I played like ... I want to say a bad word!" Hingis after narrowly defeating Gloria Pizzichini in the 1997 French Open.


"She's as mean as a snake. She reminds me of me."
-- Martina Hingis on Maria Sharapova.

"I'm glad you're doing this story on us and not on the WNBA. We're so much prettier than all the other women in sports."
Martina Hingis

“I saw her when she was 12 and she was very good even then. You could hear her from like 10 courts further down.”


Film, a mirror of the society. A good half-and-half mix of indie & mainstream.

I liked it when an interviewer asked her if there was anything she didn't like about playing indoors, and she said "It's hard to find a horse."
