A new look at 2002 Win-Loss statistics puts Hingis way up, ...

... just below the Williams sisters.

The following is the official Win-Loss statistics for the top 15 (as of Jul 22/02), with W/L ratios computed and single titles added in for enlightenment:
Rank	Player	                        Year	W/L     Singles
		                        W-L	Ratio   Titles
1	Serena_Williams	                36-3	12.00	5
2	Venus_Williams	                41-6	6.83	4
3	Jennifer_Capriati	        33-9	3.67	1
4	Monica_Seles	                39-10	3.90	2
5	Kim_Clijsters	                22-9	2.44	1
6	Jelena_Dokic	                33-13	2.54	2
7	Justine_Henin	                38-13	2.92	1
8	Martina_Hingis	                26-5	5.20	2
9	Lindsay_Davenport	        --	--	0
10	Amelie_Mauresmo	                30-10	3.00	1
11	Sandrine_Testud	                17-15	1.13	0
12	Daniela_Hantuchova	        32-15	2.13	1
13	Elena_Dementieva	        28-16	1.75	0
14	Silvia_Farina_Elia	        32-16	2.00	1
15	Anastasia_Myskina	        34-19	1.79	0
Once we reorder the same list according to Win/Loss ratio, we have:
Rank	Player                  Year     W/L
		                W-L     Ratio

1	Serena Williams	        36-3	12.00
2	Venus Williams	        41-6	6.83
8	Martina Hingis	        26-5	5.20
4	Monica Seles	        39-10	3.90
3	Jennifer Capriati       33-9    3.67
10	Amelie Mauresmo	        30-10	3.00
7	Justine Henin	        38-13	2.92
6	Jelena Dokic	        33-13	2.54
5	Kim Clijsters	        22-9	2.44
12	Daniela Hantuchova	32-15	2.13
14	Silvia Farina Elia	32-16	2.00
15	Anastasia Myskina	34-19	1.79
13	Elena Dementieva	28-16	1.75
11	Sandrine Testud	        17-15	1.13
9	Lindsay Davenport	--	--
Although the same population (ie, number of matches) is not used for all players considered, the numbers of matches are all above the statistical magic number of 30, which gives the order some validity.

This is in no way an attempt to put Hingis at #3, over Jennifer, Seles and the rest. It's just to show that the girl is not to be forgotten, discounted or derided. Once she recovers, we can expect her to be right up there, challenging everyone (except maybe Serena).

BTW, I'm still a Williams fan; I haven't changed camp.

See, she doesn't completely suck! She reached a GS final, a Tier I final, and won a strong Tier II and a Tier I. Plus a few semifinals, and with the exception to her 4-6 0-6 loss to Serena, she was looking good this year!

Ah well, hopefully she can keep those numbers up when she returns.

We know SOME of the problem was likely her feet, as a seperate issue from the ankle. What's up with the shoe lawsuit? If Martina can run without pain, and she's fast, she'll be fine.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I've heard nothing about the shoe lawsuit as of yet. I'm guessing Martina gave up on it or Tachinni settled it out of court. Hopefully Marti will come back strong in time for the indoor season and maybe for the US Open.

I'm not a fan of Chucky. BUT I miss her on the tour. I hope she comes back strong.

Martina is a great player, she can beat everyone except a williams. when you look at players, all of there titles, they have won without beating a williams recently. the only player i know that has one a title beating a williams recently is a williams. all of martinas wins this year either had a williams in the draw and the that williams dropped out or rarely lost early. same goes for jennifer. all of her past wins, she has not beaten a williams on the way. what does that say?
