I'm watching some peak Legend just now and she is doing everything better ten years ago

She's craftier, has better anticipation, better movement, can hit harder when needed, better at the net, better fighter.

Yet Radwanska is sometimes referred to as Hingis 2.0

And Hingis is not referred to as Radwanska 0.5. You have your answer.

And I say this as someone who thinks Hingis, while a fantastic player, is and was vastly overrated.

I think Radwanska is better prepared physically....And she has great drop shots that are equal or slightly better than Hingis I think. But.other.than that, obviously Hingis is better on everything else.

Which match did.you watch?

Nope, better drop shots, better lobs, better volleys, better forehand, better backhand, no contest here. And better serve

How would Hingis fair on today's slow courts? Probably around what Radwanska's achieving.

I think radwanska is maybe the quicker of the two, but Hingis' anticipation makes her equal if not better in the movement department too

WOMENS TENNIS FAN FIRST AND FOREMOST.

big support for... Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova, Ana Ivanovic, Vika Azarenka

No.

If tennis players were reptiles, Legend would be a beautiful coral snake with the deadly venom and bite to match, while Agatha would be a basic house gecko.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Anticipation is the only thing that vaguely resembles Hingis. But even then Hingis's footwork is leagues beyond, as is her general court perception.

Radwanska has better serve, is more athletic and better pusher of the two
Hingis anticipates and redirects ball better, has better hands and net skills.

Actually a player who resembles swiss mistress the most is Chakvetadze at her counterpunching and redirecting best
