Re: Real 1# of 1997 - Hingis or Seles?

Gosh I was going to make this thread but with Venus Love it

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

The real #1 was Coetzer. Amazing that someone who made Hingis look like a big babe physically could make it to #3 in the World, thrash the great Graf a few times, beat Hingis late in the year, make 2 slam semis, and probably narrowly miss winning the French Open that year.

Re: Real 1# of 1997 - Hingis or Seles?

Hingis always pwned Coetzer The record is like 10-2 and Amanda's 2 victories were extremely tight 3 setters

Initially yes, but it's more a response for all the threads selesisqueen has been making.

Re: Real 1# of 1997 - Hingis or Seles?

first off, this thread is stupid--hingis was the best player of 1997. in fact, it was one of the most dominating performances ever.
that said, why do you have to hate on majoli for now reason in your poll? she was top10 already in 96, she's beaten almost everyone there is to beat in that generation, she didn't exactly have a cakewalk into the rg finals and she played a hell of a match when she got there

ugh, why do they all suck????????

She made it to number 3 for grand total of 1 week.
She trashed Graf? Graf trashed herself with 40+ unforced errors in straight sets losses.
Amanda was highly overrated in 1997, and that fluke of a year never repeated in her entired carreer.

She was a great top 15 player thought, tough to beat competitive and complete, great at the baseline and at the net.. very good doubles player..... Now that i think about it, she is better than some of the top 10 players today. not a surprise
