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

what is the WTA coming to?

Serena signing bilateral friendship accords left and right
Maria, Radwanska, ...and now Martina?
Who is next? Alves and Chino?

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

I have no idea why people think Martina will be working directly with Serena. Martina is part of the team, but most likely will be working with the lessers......Sarin is the franchise player she gets the top coaches. I mean really what can Martina teach her.....how to win 5 GS?????.....Serena has been there and done that 3 times.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Exactly.
And seriously, what exactly is Hingis gonna teach Serena?

They'll likely pass each other during practice potty breaks and nod.
I can see that being the full extent of their contact.
No one is pulling the wool over my eyes about their relationship.
These two did not like each other for years.
Now, they are simply civil to each other because they are both more mature and have bigger fish to fry in Life.

I could be mistaken, I think most are just finding the possibility of Martina and Serena in the same training camp as allies very amusing and ironic.


Personally, I think it would be cool if they can work together.
Both women are head strong, none would lose their personality in teaming up

While it's obvious Martina is unlikely to work with Serena, it's silly to think Hingis couldn't teach her something.

Serena's over 30, she's not in training to be taught new skills she's in training to refine the already established areas of her game and keep herself fresh and fit. Hingis is an excellent tactician, she would be a valuable asset for any player who wants to approach a match with the best possible strategies.

How to hit proper dropshots and lobs?

MIRJANA LUCIC-BARONI ☢ | SAM STOSUR ☯ | MARTINA HINGIS ♚ | DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ✯ | MADISON KEYS ☢ | OLGA PUCHKOVA ❤

Donít squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend

I doubt if Serena would want Hingis to teach her.

Idiotic statement to say the least! Many on tour can dropshot and lob better than Serena. Question is: what has "proper dropshots & lobs" gotten them in return? Serena is the one holding 15GS and counting without "proper dropshots & lobs". Serena in her own way still dropshots and lobs way better than Sam or anyone u might like to name who is not Aga.
