Re: Bombshell: Hingis is in Serena's training camp

1999: War of words. Richard Williams: "It'll be an all-Williams final." Hingis: "I am #1 and have five Slams not them. They have big mouths." Serena Williams: "Lack of formal education." Hingis: "I can speak 5 languages so I'm not that dumb." After beating Venus: "I just didn't want the all-Williams final to happen." Serena wins the title and Hingis hugs her to congratulate her.

2001: Hingis d. Serena at AO. Serena: "I have food poisoning. I only ate toast." Hingis: "Watching what you eat is part of being more professional, so she should be better prepared." At the end of the match, both women are all smiles when they meet at the net.

Sure, there was quite a bit of verbal sparring between the two but I never sensed any animosity from either one for the other.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Watch out Serena. Hingis is chasing Patrick's delicious man's ass

Indeed. Old news.

A real bombshell would be if Hingis caught PMA and Serena with their pants down.

I always thought from the first time I posted here, that European posters didn't "get" trash talk.

In America, especially amongst African Americans and Southern Whites, trash talk is mostly intended to be humorous (and of course to intimidate as well)...but when the game is over the athletes don't even think about what was said before the match begins.

While our local "Martians" recoiled with horror over Richard Williams talking about the ghetto doctor he could send Chucky to, in order to make her legs longer; I'm sure both Hingis and the Williams Sisters just laughed and rolled their eyes at Richard. Multiply that times most of the things the Williams Family has said before a tennis match.

Now things said after a match, clearly in reaction to that match...see Spirlea's bump...and not just referencing the next time they play...that's when the comments might not be so humorous.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

"I don't know that I changed all that much. They just found somebody worse." - Aging tennis bad boy Jimmy Connors, referring to John McEnroe, in 1984.

There can never be too many "Sister Slams!"

Re: Bombshell: Hingis is in Serena's training camp

Old news indeed. What would be amazing is to see Martina on Serena's box at the AO

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.

I guess Patrick decided it is best to work with an actual GOAT over the possible future GOAT.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Re: Bombshell: Hingis is in Serena's training camp

I predict a rapprochement between Serena fans and Hingis fans the next few months.

Hingis fans might even root for Serena the next few months.

SO, could we see Martina in Serena's family box in Sydney? Next to Richard
