Jon Wertheim : speculation on martina 's comeback

Regarding the following from your 50 thoughts on Wimbledon: "And keep an eye on this: Martina Hingis' ban lapses in October, a day or so after her 29th birthday." Don't tease. Really? Might we see some much needed star-power and crafty play return in the form of Ms. Hingis?
-- Jay, Phoenix

• No tease intended. Just saying that the ban lapses and, at a minimum, at least she'll be allowed back in the Grand Slam venues. Will Hingis come back? After all, 29 isn't ancient. This is total speculation, but I wouldn't hold my breath. While Hingis might be tempted (and she stayed in shape in her absence), there's a difference between winning a match here and there, and being competitive week in and week out.

Im pretty confident in my amazing memory skills (lol) that she said when the ban expired she wasnt coming back but who knows what that means.

Wouldn't she be embarassed to comeback? I mean she was publicly humiliated by being thrown out of the tennis world.

Re: Jon Wertheim : speculation on martina 's comeback

I don't see yet another comeback from her. And we really don't need another one. One comeback was enough - and it proved to be a success! Let's leave it at that.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Anyone who wouldnt want to see her play again is an idiot. She can still play for another 2-3 years, 30 years old isnt what it used to be

Re: Jon Wertheim : speculation on martina 's comeback

I think she is too proud to comeback,she is probably happy tending to her horses and just enjoying her money.

Re: Jon Wertheim : speculation on martina 's comeback

Martina did a very full and frank interview referenced recently on this forum. Nevertheless it breathed that slightly lazy complacency that even her mother acknowledges. Martina knows she could match the best over a set by trying her hardest, but would struggle to keep up with their power over a whole match. Yes, she finds horse riding easier...

A Martina N comeback is more likely

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

That's probably true.

Still, I think there is still a slight chance for a comeback. She could still spend a few more years in the top 10 if she really wanted it...

Re: Jon Wertheim : speculation on martina 's comeback

I just dont get it. People say she shouldnt come back because she is 29? Woman play past 29 in all other sports, but for some reason the skeptics on this forum think 29-35 is over the hill for Tennis? If she still loves to play, why the hell shouldnt she?
