Worshipping Hingis then, Wozniacki now!

That girl really reminds me my beloved Martina Hingis in so many ways. The way she walks, that all-time smile, high forehead. Shame she has a weak netgame now, but her backhand was on fire in the match vs Jankovic. I'd never seen her hit it so flat and hard before.
And after her yesterday's achievement, fighting the cramps and tears on her face, she really moved me. I've always liked her, now she's my idol

Who joins the club?

Re: Worshipping Hingis then, Wozniacki now!

Sorry, there is no comparison, and neither Woz nor Aga remind me of Hingis (people compare them to Hingis that only because they have a decent court-sense and no power, so they cannot think of anyone else to compare them with).

Martina could flatten out her forehand, serve better, had a net game that is leagues above Caro's and could also play with incredible variety. Wozniacki has nothing of that in her game.

Their foreheads are where the comparisons end.

In-form Chakvetadze is the player more reminiscent of Hingis.

Re: Worshipping Hingis then, Wozniacki now!

Caroline is no Hingis. Hingis, to say the least, is a once in a generation tennis genius who won't be replicated for a long time to come.

On the other hand, Caroline is a terrific fighter. Her strengths lies in her ability to raise the so-called retrieving tennis playing style to a whole new dimension. That's where she is dangerous. Like Schett said in her assessment of Caroline, she is still young and will be able to develop more weapons as she matures in the years to come. She's just getting started.

Re: Worshipping Hingis then, Wozniacki now!

Am I saying Caroline is Hingis? I don't dare to. As a Hingis fan I realize there will be no Hingis again, and wrote that Caroline's game is nowhere to Martina's but her on-court attitude is Hingis-like. Caroline admired Martina, maybe that explains her similar to her idol on-court behaviour.

Re: Worshipping Hingis then, Wozniacki now!

Kinda, still no one will replace Hingis in my heart. But Caroline...her smile, her forehead, her grunt...those are the qualities that remind me of Hingis.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

I think she talks almost exactly like Hingis.

Re: Worshipping Hingis then, Wozniacki now!

The comparison is an idle, and pretty misinformed.

Hingis was in a class of her own. Wozniacki could only dream of playing tennis like that.

Seems like most didn't even read his post without replying

Same people in EVERY thread about Caro, it's hilarious!

THREAD - Caro Just Farted
insert: reetard, slutiana, delicatecutter.

Fantastically in that order for this thread!

Re: Worshipping Hingis then, Wozniacki now!

Are you a Hingis fan? Or just pretending. Go burn yourself on a stake for uttering such heresy.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Worshipping Hingis then, Wozniacki now!

Hingis is a first ballot HOFer.
But I can see a comparison in their facial expressions. They both look like they enjoy the competition.
Caro fought well this week. But her game isn't like Martina's.
I was impressed how she fought against Vera. But Vera has some health issues too. That's why Aga is playing Vika now.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

damn, you guys! I'm NOT saying her game is like Martina's. Go back to school to get proper education and learn to read again!
