Martina Hingis v Kim Clijsters Aussie Open 2007

I think a few people on this message board should watch this.....

Anyone who says Hingis doesn't hit the ball hard enough or hasn't worked to be able to hit the ball deeper and harder is CRAZY.

Anyone who says Hingis is not a top 10 player is CRAZY.

Anyone who says Kim CLijsters didn't care enough to win the big events is CRAZY.

Just take a look at the effort and heart that they both put into this match.

I love both these girls, particularly Hingis but Kim as well......and I reckon everyone should quit bagging and start appreciating......Both of them have been missing for much of this year......Kim probably will never come back, but Hingis can still win some big events and push the top players to the limit.......I still have faith that she can win a slam again......It was a fantastic match, one of the best of 2007.

Martina really should have won this match. Kim played like crap and she didn't take advantage enough.

It was also an error filled contest with a combined total of 82 UE...

2 aces, 14 DF COMBINED.

Awful match.

Just because a match has errors doesn't mean it's an awful match to watch.....I remember it was written up as being a great match in all the Aussie newspapers......as one of the best of the tournament.

There were some amazing points as well as those errors....I agree that Hingis should've kept her momentum going and won....but regardless, they both put up a really great display.

Heck, Venus Williams said today after San Diego that she played the BEST tennis she's played in FOREVER and yet she made 41 unforced errors.....judging by your reaction, a match with that many errors by one player is crap??

nah mate, sorry I dont

Was just searching Youtube for some old matches and came across that....

I've read in numerous threads how ''Hingis is done'' and ''Clijsters was pathetic and nobody misses her''.....

Just thought I'd show somethign positive about them for a change!

Re: Martina Hingis v Kim Clijsters Aussie Open 2007

im just happy that she's back again after a good 2nd round win i honestly thought that martina is fading away again after a horrible loss at wimbledon but now my faith for martina is growing up again i really wish she can go deep in tournaments but for now i don't have any high expectations for martina but still im really glad that she's playing again

HOW CAN YOU FACE A PROBLEM IF THE PROBLEM IS YOUR FACE?
