"Game-wise Kirilenko is comparable to Hingis" -- Tarpischev

Tarpischev regarding Kirilenko's performance at the Oz:

Quote:
Kirilenko has improved her fitness and stamina, that's why she's able to compete with the top-20 nowadays. I think she should work on her athleticism further because game-wise she's already comparable with Hingis, Myskina, Kournikova who all played intellectual tennis.

Maria does have a lot of variety, but that doesn't automatically make anyone smart player. And people need to stop with the Hingis comparisons. Honestly. Even Martina's talent took years and years of her mother drilling it into her from such a young age, so I think people just need to face the fact that there will never be another Hingis.

Why is Anna highlighted in red, she did play intellectual tennis, she wasn't some ballbasher or pusher, she just couldn't serve.

Tarpischev played Kirilenko over Dinara in an important Fed Cup match against Kim, so he likes her game

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

Re: "Game-wise Kirilenko is comparable to Hingis" -- Tarpischev

Jim Courier also played intellectual tennis, when he read a book during changeovers.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: "Game-wise Kirilenko is comparable to Hingis" -- Tarpischev

I told all of you when kirilenko completly bitch slapped cocktail pova all over the court in round 1 that kirilenko's game is about the same style than hingis. She doesnt care about power shots, she care about stamina, gaming, gut feelings, anticipation and athletic ability. Kirilenko will be top 20 and maybe top 10 is she can improve even more consistency about her defensive game style. Hingis was the BEST PURE PLAYER OF ALL TIME, WITHOUT ANY DOUBT. If only kirilenko can have 40% of hingis consistency and believe. She can stay in top 10 for years.

She has the attributes, she can do big things on this tour, unlike one dimensional barbies like sharapova and *rip* vaidisova who can only do one thing, without thinking.

It's not about Wins or Losses, it's about How you Play the Game

Actually, I think this is a good quote. He isn't saying she IS the next Hingis, but I can see influences from those 3 players in Maria's game. I think she will be in the top 20 by the USO.
Come on Maria!!!



Venus Ana Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Masha Bencic Keys Nicole Dani
Sania Vika Petko Simona Broady Robi CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval


Martina Hingis Forever!!!
