The first set was mostly errors by Venus. I stopped watching the match after that.

Re: was v vs hingis rome any good?

I've only ever seen the third set, but most of that set is very entertaining.

There are a fair few errors from Venus, but they tend to be forced from long rallies. It's not to the level of te Pironkova match or anything.

In Warsaw Venus made 80+ errors and Hingis 40+
This match was at least better quality wise.

Re: was v vs hingis rome any good?

First set was great by Venus

Got really impatient in the next two sets though, backhand went off. A breakpoint in the third, venus just shot a backhand out

Hingis was consistent enough, but it was Venus's match to win IMO

Re: was v vs hingis rome any good?

YES! I loved this match. The 1st set was ALL Venus, great play, w/Martina making some bizarre errors The rest of the match Martina was steady as a rock, playing smart clay-court tennis and Venus looked a little lost. It seemed to me that she wasn't feeling well? But overall, a lot of good stuff. The Warsaw match was a litttle scary but I love it as well!

No the Warsaw match was DRAMATIC as HELL...some of the shots in the 3rd set were just absurdly good by Venus, even though she could barely serve. I don't know if I have ever seen Hingis like that, just all over the place, she REALLY shouldhave won that match...in fact both matches looked like they were going the other way, maybe that is part of the reason I truly did LOVE them!

Hingis's bizarely slowed her serve down, Venus just stood there hitting winners off the first ball

Match of the year for me.................for comic value

Re: was v vs hingis rome any good?

the rome match was very good in the second and third sets, a lot of long rallies and athletic shots one of my favorite matches of the year

Venus played a lot better in this match than she played when Hingis beat her 6-1 6-1 at the Australian Open(and the previous round Martina beat Serena).

Martina Hingis has won Roland Garros 2007!!!!!!!!!!
