Re: Hingis, Navratilova to Play in Adelaide

Navratilova and Cash won their mixed doubles against Hingis and Willanders. Tie break! It was such an entertaining match and a really good crowd. It reminded me of when the Tour really was fun. The crowd appeared bigger for this than many main tournaments and it was great to hear the live commentary and discussions from the players.

I really do believe that there are some lessons the ATP and WTA could learn about breathing some life back into the tours - a good dose of 'fun' and variety would do neither any harm.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

Loved it. Great crowd. Navratilova's fantastic volleys and Hingis' touch and feel for the ball.

Re: Hingis, Navratilova to Play in Adelaide

I loved it. The crowd response to both Hingis and Navratilova was absolutely massive. They both got a bit of a standing ovation at the end (yes, I stood up too ), it was great to see, hope they come back next year.

Henri Leconte's whistling to Hingis. Then yelling out 'Go Martina!' resulting in both yelling 'WHICH ONE?' back. Not to mention the time where he took the bowl of food from a crowd member and brought it all the way to Navratilova.

Overall, it was wonderful.

Only saw the last few games but it was really nice to still see some amazing volleying skills from both players.

What is its nature? He covets. That is his nature. And how do we begin to covet? We begin by coveting what we see every day.
And don't your eyes seek out the things you want?

Not that it matters, they are just there having fun but it was Hingis and Wilander that won the tie-breaker not the other way around. Hingis also won the singles match the next day against Navra (but that is to be expected) Hingis is about 20 years younger!

Almost 25 actually. BTW, if they had met at their peaks, Martina the older would have probably beaten her namesake in straight sets, especially on grass. And I love both

Re: Hingis, Navratilova to Play in Adelaide

Cash and Navratilova really won the mixed doubles. Go look at youtube and see the last ball of Hingis that was out. Not that it matters as barmaid said but he wants to give all the matches to Hingis who is 24 years younger then Navratilova.

Strange that she is retired for such a long time.

Re: Hingis, Navratilova to Play in Adelaide

Hingis/Bahrami just won Navratilova/Leconte 6-4 Fun stuff!
Mansour Bahrami is a talented sexy beast.
