HINGIS PROBABLY WLL ENTER THE US OPEN AS A WILD CARD

HERE IS HERE THE LASTEST INTERVIEW SADDLEBROOK -
"My crutches(?) are still are in the garage, but I need them no longer," said Martina Hingis yesterday from the USA. Swiss number 1 trains at the moment in her second home in Saddlebrook near Tampa, already hitting again twice daily on the tennis court, mostly with young college players. She had been operated on 20 May in Zurich at the ligaments of the left foot. "I am from day to day better, but at the moment I want to aggravate nothing. I orient myself at my feeling ", she said.

Participation in the US Open still possible.
Meanwhile the WTA provided for confusion with an announcement which said Hingis' starts were off in the next weeks in San Diego, Los Angeles and Montreal to call had, and in accordance with information of their management to announce itself before the entry deadline on 15 July for the US Open.

That is a pure formality, because she never intended after the operation to play these three preparation tournaments, said Mario Widmer. The consequence of the WTA announcement is however hasty. A start in Flushing Meadows is also possible at short notice by means of Wildcard and cannot not be excluded in accordance with Hingis herself and Widmer at this time.

"I want to set myself to no time frameworks for my comeback, thereby pressurize myself", said the US open 1997 champion. "Surely there is the possibility that I will play in New York. Nevertheless I have still over five weeks time for preparation. And up to now the therapy ran well."

The possibilities for training are ideal in Florida; also the warmth does her well. Apart from tennis training, she swims very often. In addition, she hits golfballs almost every second day on the driving range. She does not intend however, to visit her friend, the Spanish golf professional Sergio Garcia at the British Open in the coming week, although she was with him almost three weeks long in the USA on the golf route. "I remain provisional in Florida. At the moment I must look so Swiss for me ". René Stauffer

why would she enter as a WC ????
she could enter today, and withdraw as late as possible if she going to play in the 1st place.

I doubt it if we see her back until the indoor season if at all for rest of 2002.

Good luck to my favs

They'd always give her a wildcard, so why bother. Also this way, they would give a direct admission to a struggling player from the second hundred rather than giving a wildcard to another useless Ameican Junior. It's better this way.

ys - I happen to agree with you on giving Martina the wildcard. However, two recent 'useless American juniors' are ranked #1 and #2.

How will they seed her if they give her a wildcard?
According to her then current rank would protect the other seeded players from her til the 3rd round. BUt it would set up a 'Martina vs top 8 seed' fourth round match.

the thing is the entry deadline is tomorrow so she can still enter for the US Open.

I know that they'd give her a WC over someone unknown, but i doubt if she will play US Open without any warmup matches beforehand.

Good luck to my favs

Volcana ....... you can only be a junior if you played junior events so technically they never were useless as junoirs as they never played there.

Good luck to my favs

To my best knowledge, those players have never been tennis juniors.

I'm confused. Why would she wait and enter as a wild card when, as someone said, all she has to do is enter the Open and, if she can't play, withdraw. Why wait and enter as a wild card? It doesn't make sense.

Besides, how well does she expect to do at the Open if she hasn't entered any warmup tournaments? I can't imagine she would just jump into a Slam after not playing a match for 6 months and expect to do well. Even Martina is not that good!! She has lost in first rounds of Slams before, you know.

I really don't expect to see her until the indoor season and she might not do well until the Aussie Open. But, whenever she gets back playing regularly will be nice. Not that she will change anything at the top of the list but she can make things interesting from the quarters on.

She is perhaps a kind of a person for whom the word "commitment" means exactly what it is supposed to mean. How can you commit to something that you have a big chance not being able to do?

Adison-Hingis,
Thanks for that article. The part that makes me LOL, though is when it states that Hingis is practising "mostly with young college players." I'm so sure Martina is flirting with those boys. She seems to love the company of men. LOL!!!!!!!
