Martina Hingis should retire!

In light of recent poor performances at GS level, she will never contend for a a GS title these days

She should just give up while her reputation remains strong as a 'great' player...The longer she goes on, the worse her reputation is going to get.

Re: Martina Hingis should retire!

I understand your point, brayster87, but Martina should retire if she played her best tennis and still lose. But it's not the case. She's playing horribly, that's why she's losing. She's far from her best form.

Re: Martina Hingis should retire!

Maybe you should retire too from this board as your contribution as far poorer than her performance.

did she come back to the pro because her main goal was to win a GS, or because of that she loves to play tennis??

Think twice till you'll create the next one useless thread.

If you're going to mindlessly insult someone, then at least be sure you have some grammar to back up your points.

Re: Martina Hingis should retire!

I don't like Martina but my god is it painful to watch her play like this. Even though I didn't like her, I used to enjoy watching her play. Now it's just agonising to watch her (and this is coming from a non-fan, I don't know how bad it is for a fan to see her play like this).
