Is it fact or Jealousy? Martina hingis on Serena Williams

In 2007 Martina Hingis said Serena's game is all about brute force and no power. She wins matches because of her physique and strength. Therefore Martina Cannot respect it. If Martina had Serena's physique then she would be the greatest ever.. Do you think she is accurate or is she jealous that Serena is now one of the GOAT and she never reached her mothers potential..

She's jealous.

Martina can take several seats back. That bitch will never come close to being a GOAT. Yet she wants to criticise LordRena?

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

I very much doubt Hingis would want Serena's physique.

she doubted whether mauresmo and henin were actually women or not......hingis is just a bad joke......

i don't understand how they let her off the doping convictions and at the same time banned gasquet for accidentally kissing a girl who smoked coke......

Re: Is it fact or Jealousy? Martina hingis on Serena Williams

Why debate over a quote that was said nearly 6 years ago? She's only had kind things to say about The Lord in recent interviews, which goes to show that she has at the very least learned her place.

Re: Is it fact or Jealousy? Martina hingis on Serena Williams

I don't know the context, but it's obvious that in many sports having almost man-like power and physique can help you big to dominate a women field and Serena is not an exception.
But power would be useless if you don't have excellent tennis skills, which Serena obviously has.

Brute force and NO power?

Anyways...martina might have been jealous, who knows. I think she might have been but serena had already surpassed her by that time.

But it is kinda true, that serena is all about power and wins because of her physique - thats just her game. But she can mix it up and does so occasionally. She's got more variety than people think. But you can think about it this way - if serena was like hingis (average athlete, slow, crap serve etc), do you think she would have been as successful as she is now? Doubt it. And maybe thats why hingis couldnt respect serena's style of play - I think that she though that her game required a lot more skill.

What is up with this whole "Lord" situation? I personally find it offensive to God..............
It looks like a desperate plea to compete with "empress"

So you're the mouth piece of Hingis? Not to be too insulting, you think Serena would want Hingis' physique ...while I'm not a fan at least I know there a lotta pple outhere who dig Serena's athletic figure

My fav has often been insulted for being flat, a tooth pick,and looking like a boy on this forum, but I'm

And we know this how?! Serena has her strengths and she maximized them. Hingis should've done the same with her strengths, instead of hating on Serena.
