Aga Radwańska = Martina Hingis version 2.0

Having seen the Eastbourne final I got to conclusion (or rather assured myself) that Aga Radwańska is becoming a better version of my dearest Martina Hingis. I can't say she'll be better that Martina, but her game is alike Martina's plus she got a bit more power. Her net play, serve, drop-shots + lobs, on-court finesse reminds me of Hingis. She's gonna struggle against power hitters, but when they have a day off, she's capable of outsmarting them
Congrats Aga on your Tier II title!!!

Re: Aga Radwańska = Martina Hingis version 2.0

Hingis made it to #6 in her comeback. I wonder if Radwanska can make the top five...

I can see why someone would make the comparison. I like Radwanska much more than Hingis, but they do have pretty similar games.

Good point. Even a half-assed Hingis made the top 10 when the competition was stronger. Women's tennis is in a sad state these days.

Re: Aga Radwańska = Martina Hingis version 2.0

Radwanska naturally has more power because times have moved on. I understand the comparison with Hingis because of the on-court thinking and cool head, but no way is Radwanska a better version of Hingis. Radwanska's good, but you can't say she's better than someone who totally dominated the game when they were 16 and is known for her legendary tactical knowledge. Hingis for sure is the smarter player.

Re: Aga Radwańska = Martina Hingis version 2.0

Radwanska can hit drop shots and lobs, and has better accuracy than most other players, but she doesn't have the aggression and almost unconscious court sense that Hingis had in the late 90s.

But I think she is my new favorite player until Hingis comes back now that Hingis is gone.

Bitttchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh You Better Pay It Honey! The Devil Is A Liar!!!!! Bitches Get Interviews And Shit? Where They Do That At Honey? Girls Are Late Honey!!!! The Queen Needs To Get Into It Honey Cause The Girls Is Late Out Here! Yes Honey Im Throwing Epic Shade!

As I already stated in various threads I don't believe that the age matters when a player starts their great achievements. It depends on so many factors and perhaps most of all at that age it depends on their physical development and we all know that some of us grew tall early, went through puberty late or all the other way around. Same with players some will start earlier than others.

However I agree that it doesn't make sense to compare two players that did not play against each other at their peak time from "better/worse" perspective, while one can compare their styles. All those debates who is the greatest player of all time don't make sense to me. Furthermore Agnieszka is just entering her career at the top, so let's just see where it goes.

I also diesagree that the level of the game is lower than it was in the past. It is a time of change of the front guard, but it is a good thing. I love when new comers are stirring the pot. Sometimes I see here some young old people that can't let go off the past, I can't believe a lot of these old people are in thier teens

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!
-Andre
P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
Bally, Rest In Peace!

Neither of them have any talent, but that may be your point. Radwanska is a superb player, perhaps the most talented player playing now (her or Szavay, and I haven't forgotten the sisters). She doesn't get enough respect around here, really. I'd know, I used to diss her all the time here.

On topic, Hingis and Myskina are Hingis and Myskina. I don't think you can really compare them with anyone else, even each other. On who Radwanska is more like...well, the only thing she's got going in favor of Myskina is that her forehand is her best shot, but Myskina and Hingis weren't known for their forehands anyway.

Go Aga.
