Nice Balanced Article On Martina

This may already have been posted, but there was a decent balanced article on Martina, avoiding the more salacious aspects of recent events.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

Re: Nice Balanced Article On Martina

It's a fair article and actually shows Hingis some respect while at the same time not sugarcoating anything about her and her career. I really like the final line:

The circumstances of her final retirement are not disgraceful or scandalous. If she took cocaine, she would have played worse, not better. But there is sadness that she has gone, sadness for the game that she illuminated.
