WTT: Hingis (NYS) d. Oudin (PHI) 53

Okay, so now that Martina has resurrected herself from her dealer's basement, I can ask this.

WTF DOES HAIL WINGIS MEAN.

But it was great to see Oudin outsmarted and completely confused.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Re: WTT: Hingis (NYS) d. Oudin (PHI) 53

Its absolutely baffling to me: I saw the match, Hingis is at the fittest I remember her, running around the court like she is still a teenager, hitting deep, good 1st serve, amazing volleys etc. I didn't expect her to be playing like this. On the other hand Oudin is not at her best now, but she still a top 100 player. Wingis!

Strong performance from Melanie against a former no 1. Keep fighting. Keeping herself in prime shape. The US hc events are coming and thats where she is at her most dangerous.

yes but if Hingis plays a few months on the tour, all the old health problems will reappear, just like with Justine. Better for her to just play exhibitions and occasional Olympics doubles

Sorry to break it to you, but Melanie is not dangerous anywhere. I really don't see how you can take any positives from losing to a 30 year old retired player.

Give back 2011 Cincinatti to JJ

I'm petty sure Justine fell and ripped up her elbow tendon. That's not an old health problem.

Hingis does look good. I wouldn't take much away from a few WTT matches. CoCo and Mel can barely win matches on tour it's not surprising Hingis can beat them in a shortened format.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

No doubt Hingis could do quite well if she came back. Possibly reach the Top 10 again. But this girl was used to being the phenom everyone loved or loved to hate. She was #1 forever without any Slams. She knows neither of those are attainable anymore so she will never come back.

Oudin has one the most amount of games against Hingis so far in singles! Hingis is playing really good! She is still definitely fit and ready for the next level. Melanie did not play that bad.

But still impressive!

Melanie's most certainly improving!

Melanie is very slowly improving, but she is still nowhere near what she needs to be in order to hang with the big gals.

Hingis looks amazing. I Really wish she would try to play just a few more seasons with a comeback. I think she could win a few more tournaments for sure.

if anyone should get praise here, it is Martina, not Oudin.

How can you say that with 100% certainty? Would you have ever believed that Schiavone or Li would win RG?
