Martina is an ADDICT!!

I wish people would stop saying Martina is so "stupid". She is not stupid, she is an addict. Addicts act irrationally, puting their drug of choice before their careers, they families, even their own lives. Martina , Cocaine Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, something. She is deep denial right now. I hope someone convinces her to try a 12 step program.

Never, a big Martina fan, I was shocked and saddened by this news. I watched Martina play Sonia Mirza this summer in Carson, and what sticks out in my mind most is her changeover chair. All of her things, her bag, energy drinks, towels, etc were all neatly arranged, very tidy. Sonia's stuff was all thrown about near her chair, bag open spilling over. Not sure what this really means...

Good luck, Martina. I hope you get the help you need to live a productive and sober life.

Re: Martina is an ADDICT!!

Addicts can be stupid. That's usually how they become addicts.
This is all speculation anyway, and this is a trollish thread if I ever saw one.

being smart or stupid has nothing to do with addiction. Some very intelligent folks are/were addicts, Drew Barrymore, Beethoven, Ray Charles, Jimmy Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Miles Davis, Jaime Lee Curtis, Roseanne, some of the Kennedy family members and many, many, others...

Oh for heaven's sake children ....

Tina MAY have tested positive for a non-performance enhancing stimulant that is deemed illegal by dumbass authorities around the world. Hingis is a big girl, rather wealthy with it - and can take the appropriate measures if she has a problem with that nasty substance.

I'm not saying that you're right, but I think you might have nailed it. It's possible that she has some sort of addiction.

Can someone post that picture of her at the conference yesterday, and then see how old the woman looked?

I think she's possibly got some sort of addiction, or more likely, she has an illness, and the treatment she is under produces the metabolite which showed up on her test results. She probably doesn't want people to know about the illness, which is fair enough.

I mean you make stupid choices. You can have an IQ of 155 and be an addict. Doesn't make you smart

Re: Martina is an ADDICT!!

That's not so bad, although she does look older than 27.

But the close-up one made her look in her late 30s, or even a young-looking woman in her early 40s.

Making "stupid choices" is part of addiction. Like getting behind the wheel of a car when you are high or showing up at work loaded thinking no one would notice.

Martina Hingis got high knowing she would be random drug tested. And she is still denying it, despite the test results.

As I said, I am still in shock about this news. I will be the first to eat crow if the test results are wrong, but...

Martina and Serena both suffer from the same problem: their own ego.

Serena is a better player and a better athlete, so she can just about muddle along, looking fat, drained and sluggish (some might also call that weak). Martina runs away and retires because she can't face plummeting down the rankings, at the "old" age of....twenty seven. WTF?!?

Neither will face their problems, because in their own minds that would shatter their illusions of belonging at the top, as they are, almost by divine right.
