I give her 8.5 overall...she jaz needs to improve her service game and she'll be on top again.

I to clueless to speak about techniques but I would not give her a 7 for mentall tougness, hello she choked 4 matchpoints away in a grandslam, that's almost as worse as Steffi choking against novotna in a grand slam once!

MENTAL TOUGHNESS- 5(and then I am still nice)

Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep

We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Hingis baseline game 9
Hingis game at net 9.5
Hingis serve game 4
Hingis return game 9

Overall for me she is on a 8 game.. but her serves lets down so much, tecnically and mentally, its hard for her, i hope someday she can get a better service motion to give her a better second serve

irma, I agree....but 1997 is an indication that she can be tough mentally if she wants to.

Actually I think she averages everything at about an 8 or a 9. She's pretty consistent with like all her shots.

She has I noticed worked on her serve, which IMO is a lot better than it used to be.

The only thing I would grade her low on is mental strength. Since about late 2000 it has not been that high. I would give it about a 5

the mental toughness part isnt that bad actually
she was playing the comeback queen ya know...

jenn threw away 8 matchpoints against venus but i'd hardly say she's weak mentally

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
