WWW: Peak Clijsters vs Peak Hingis??

This is a real interesting match up because Hingis had an easy time with Kim early in their rivalry but Kim obviously started to make things competitive but Hingis retired and lead their H2H 4-1. When Hingis made her comeback 2006-2007, Kim went undefeated against Martina in 3 slam QFs and in San Diego QF to take the lead in their H2H 5-4. Kim only had one slam at the time. Now in Kim's comeback, she achieved what Martina thought she could and has taken a handful of slams to make them closer in achievements.

Hingis would trash Fiona's one dimensional game with court craft and intelligence

Legend in 2 sets, one easy and one tough ( because of Kimberly superb grinding skills)

Kim would win on the American hardcourts for sure.

Schnyder Jankovic Petrova Kvitova Schiavone

Zvonareva Kleybanova Mattek-Sands Strycova

Niculescu Lisicki Razzano Koukalova Errani Pironkova

Baltacha (RIP) Robson Watson Gent Konta and the rest of the Brits

yep kim on hard courts most of the time. clay is intresting as hingis was good on it, though even in the year 2006 when hingis won rome and made the qtrs of the french she was overpowered by kim in that qtr final. i would probably give martina the edge on clay, but martina was prone to being hit off the court on clay.

grass is tight too, although martina won wimbledon, she sucked for the most part on grass apart from that. i would actually give kim the edge on grass.

i'd give kim a 7-3 edge if they played 10 times on all surfaces.

on a slightly off topicness, i think martina is overrated. she nabbed 3 slams in a weak year, and yes she was really consistent and her style of tennis was beautiful but she sometimes couldn't crack an egg with that forehand and the serve was very soft and short.

why would hingis win on grass? 2 top 10 wins in her entire career (navotna and ASV) and 2 career titles on it.

kim has 4 top 10 wins on grass and 2 titles also.

i know obviously hingis won wimbledon, but her draw was laughable. serial choker novotna in the final and facing 1 top 20 player to make the final. that would be like kim winning wimbledon beating dementieva in the final and beating penetta along the way.
