Who is greater now? Hingis or Venus

Having broken the 5GS tie, has Venus surpassed Hingis now in terms of who has had the better career up to this point? Discuss

Re: Who is greater now? Hingis or Venus

Uh yeah. Venus was always going to go down as the better player, but now she has the better career as well. What drives this point home even more is the fact that Venus has now won 2 slams when she was far from her best tennis. Those 5 slams Hingis won are approaching the decade ago mark.

Re: Who is greater now? Hingis or Venus

I think that nobody will do the same that Hingis did. Venus has a great career but Martina was better. Maybe Venus is superior than the Hingis from these days, but the 1998's Hingis... Nobody will be like her.

Re: Who is greater now? Hingis or Venus

Hingis was never considered better. Hingis was winning GS when the only comp was Davenport..... The field of contenders is huge now and Venus finds her way on top...

Uh. Venus as an erratic teenager beat Hingis twice in 1998. Venus, even then, was just as good, and now better than Hingis ever was.

Re: Who is greater now? Hingis or Venus

I said it was Venus, Henin, Hingis, in that order a month ago.

It's still Venus, Henin, Hingis, now.
I guess I won't have to fight as much for Venus spot in history now.
