She has most definitely already passed her peak. I can't see how she will win a slam. She would need a great draw and semi-depleted field to do so. Even then I don't think she would be able to win one.

I think Martina has peaked. I think she`s at the point where she`ll win a tournament every now and then, but i can`t see her winning another grand slam singles title with so many talented andm in a lot of cases, younger players. Plus some of those players are able to constantly attack Martina`s most glaring weakness, which is her lack of defense against power.

I think she'll win a few more, hopefully more than Serena including Roland Garros this year.

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

She could still win another. But not this year.

Yes, but it depends on how much she wants it...How hard is she willing to work for it>Only time will tell, I don't even care really, I just want her to play up to HER level, which she is far below at the moment.

Re: Do you think Martina Hingis already passed her peak and won't win a grand slam again?

I want to refer to a great post from yesterday regarding Hingis.

The same will happen to the new players, Sharapova, Vaidisova, Peer, Kuznetsova... They may dominate or at least win grand slams but at a certain point of their careers they will start to win less tournaments.
I think this sums up where Hingis is right now but also reflects a rare great perspective from a Hingis fan. Hingis is still playing some very very good tennis. She is still winning important tournaments. But she isn't unbeatable and she is going to have weeks to where she gets beat by lower ranked players. Her days of being the dominate player in the game are long over.

She might add another Grand Slam to her career but the likelihood is very much that she won't. But it is clear she is enjoying competing and relishing the challenge of being on the tour where she isn't the top banana. 3 or 4 years ago I'm not sure her ego could have handled that, now it is clear she can so credit to her.

I think most Hingis fans need to revise their expectations a bit. Enjoy the wins. Accept the losses. And just be glad she is playing again. That is what Hingis herself seems to be doing.

Re: Do you think Martina Hingis already passed her peak and won't win a grand slam again?

as many of her fans can only see her on TV, early losses in tournaments to lower ranked players means there is no matches of hers to watch. no matches with other top players. 3 tournaments in row in which i wanna cheer her on, and she loses early, leaves little or close to that motivation to watch (THANKS SERENA!). so even if shes playing, but loses early, its only scoreboards we can cheer for, we still cant see her play.

Maybe past her peak, but she is still capable of pulling out a slam is she can get her head together. With Kim clijsters not there to stop her at the french, Hingis could make her mark.
