Re: Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?
Two Hingis head to heads always surprised me.
HIngis 18-2 record over Arantxa Sanchez Vacario. Remember, ASV actually won her fourth slam, the '98 French Open, in the middle of Martina's run, yet the Spaniard found it almost impossible to beat the Swiss Miss.
The other is Martina's 16-5 record against Monica Seles (including Hopman Cup). Again, Seles was still a top player, having won the AO in '96, but Hingis clobbered her at the end of that year and went on to dominate her. She even delivered a double bagel to Monica, maybe the only one in Monica's career for all I know.
The two were good friends and even briefly played doubles together, beating the Williams sisters, but Monica rarely seemed to find the answer to Martina.
