Re: Who is better on clay: Serena or Hingis?

1) What was the score of their only clay-court match? Just out of curiosity.
2) Has Serena ever had a beat down like that?

Re: Who is better on clay: Serena or Hingis?

Hingis is a better clay player IMO, but Serena's shape in RG 2002 was outstanding, she would have won a Grand Slam playing on lava

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.

Re: Who is better on clay: Serena or Hingis?

Serena is better. She nearly beat a prime Henin at Roland Garros in 2003. Hingis would never come close to beating a prime Henin at Roland Garros, even once if they played five times there. Hingis couldnt even beat Majoli, grandma way past it Graf, or her pigeon Pierce to win RG, and got spanked by Capriati in her final serious attempt the year before Capriati went down to Serena.

Again a match up argument Hingis had more FO finals, more semifinals, more other titles more everything except a FO win.What Serena is a better big match player/champion but she isn't better than hingis on clay.

Re: Who is better on clay: Serena or Hingis?

Serena is 1-4 vs Henin on clay, and 1-3 at her 18 month career peak so she obviously isnt a tough matchup for Henin on clay. Inspite of that she still nearly beat Henin coming into her prime at RG since she is that good, even on clay. Hingis could not do this, I gaurantee it.

Serena of Roland Garros 2002, Rome 2002, Berlin 2003, Charleston 2003, Roland Garros 2003 would beat any version of Hingis on clay. That is enough for me.

Who on Earth voted 'Both suck'?

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.

....

Again, this must be a joke, and the results of the poll are . Hingis got beaten by Venus on clay, in Rome, in 1999. Anyone who thinks she can put good fight against the same Serena who made roasted peppers of Mauresmo in 2003 is really delusional.

Clay in a way makes it easier to overpower Hingis, because her shots just bounce up perfectly and slowly, leaving a lot of time for players to hit through them, especially the forehand.

You can't guarantee anything because it never happened.What happened is hingis beat Serena 6-2 6-2 in their only meeting on clay.Sure Serena can beat anybody on any surface but she is 0-3 vs schnyder on clay That's why Henin match up means nothing. It doesn't matter what she did vs others when you compare her with hingis.
