Re: Roger Federer&Martina Hingis

January 2001: Prizemoney for Hyundai Hopman Cup XIII rises to $1-million, with $240,000 to be shared by the winners, Switzerland, who atone for their dramatic HCVIII loss, with Martina Hingis and Roger Federer beating USA’s Monica Seles and Jan-Michael Gambill. Another attendance record was set, with 79,057 people watching the 12 sessions.

Well Roger sure listened to her the next time they played which was a few months later!

Re: Roger Federer&Martina Hingis

Martina wasn't trying to talk to Roger. She was laughing at him because he was playing his "guitar". Then she was talking to the ballboy about the bottles of water.

Re: Roger Federer&Martina Hingis

Are you nuts, Martina is asking something from the ballboy. They both looked very relaxed there.

The article clearly states that "Switzerland, who atone for their dramatic HCVIII loss, with Martina Hingis and Roger Federer beating USA’s Monica Seles and Jan-Michael Gambill". I have recently seen on youtube.com Monica Seles and Gambill beating Roger and Martina at the Hopman Cup so now I'm confused..one was held in December '00 and then the other one in January '01 so I just assume Rog and Marti lost the one in December and won the one in January so if they only played there once....how come they atoned from their dramatic loss as the article said?? But maybe they were talkig about another Swiss team. In 2001, is it possible they played the same team "twice"? Anyway Roger was just having "fun" with his guitar/tennis racquet!

Re: Roger Federer&Martina Hingis

Martina and Roger won the Hopman cup in 2001 ( the only year they played together ). They won their single matches ag. Seles and Jan-Michael Gambill and were leading 2:0. So the result from the mixed doubles match wasn't important.

Roger Federer and Martina Hingis of Switzerland hold the Hopman Cup aloft after they won both the singles matches against the United States. AP

PERTH, Australia (AP) -- Switzerland won the Hopman Cup mixed team tennis championship Saturday as Martina Hingis, making her fourth attempt to claim the title, defeated Monica Seles of the United States 7-5, 6-4.
Switzerland's victory prevented Seles from becoming the first player to win the event for different countries after she triumphed for Yugoslavia in 1991 with partner Goran Prpic.
After Hingis gave Switzerland the early lead, Roger Federer defeated American Jan-Michael Gambill 6-4, 6-3, to clinch the win.
Seles and Gambill beat Hingis and Federer 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) in the mixed doubles match to make the final score 2-1.
Hingis is now unbeaten in 14 singles matches at the Hopman Cup, but she had been denied the title until this year. The closest she had come was when she partnered Marc Rosset to the final in 1996.
That year, the Swiss team was forced to retire at 5-5 in the deciding doubles when Rosset hit a courtside advertising board in frustration and injured his hand.
Seles' 71-minute battle with Hingis was worthy of a Grand Slam final as each player tested the other to the limit. Hingis twice took the lead in the opening set, breaking for 2-1 and again for 4-3, only to see Seles level each time.
But at 5-5, Hingis broke for a third time by chasing down a dropshot and trapping Seles with her return, and then served out to love for the set.
Seles continued to offer a strong challenge, particularly troubling Hingis with a serve that produced seven aces and by controlling the middle of the court, running the world No. 1 from side to side.
But the breakthrough in the second set fell to Hingis after both players had held serve comfortably until 4-4. Seles then netted a double-handed forehand to give Hingis the vital break, and Hingis served out the match.
"Monica is a great competitor," said Hingis. "She's such an aggressive player and she served very well and always had me under pressure. I definitely had to run today."
Federer looked the calmer player under pressure, and he gave up just one point in his first four service games. With the American struggling to play a serve-and-volley game, the steadier Federer gained the only break of the opening set to lead 3-2 when Gambill sent a double-handed forehand wide.
Federer was pressured as he served for the set, being taken to deuce, but he served out safely for the set. In the second set Gambill offered some strong resistance as he made fewer unforced errors and some good returns.
But a volley into the net eventually gave Federer a vital break for 4-3.
The American had an opportunity to pull the match out of the fire when he held a break point in the next game, but a service winner got Federer out of trouble and a frustrated Gambill then dropped the final game.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks Irina, but I looked up the 2001 article so they did lose the match but won in the singles event. They won the first set 6-2 and were leading 4-2 in the 2nd and then both Marti and Rog had a lot of errors...at 5-4 Roger couldn't hold his serve so the American team tied the match...they went to a tie-breaker and lost 7-5 Monica sent a volley past Martina.
