Any player that doesn't hit the ball hard is compared to Martina.

Been going on for years.

Re: Hingis - Compare Radwanska to me when she's won a slam

I'd say both Radwanska and Hingis exist(ed) in the same ecological niche, game-wise. Of course, achievement-wise, they are not similar at all ...

Their match. They are indeed quite different, however Aga winning (or not) a slam wouldn't make a difference to the comparison of their respective styles - Sharapova doesn't play like Clijsters just because they both won 4 slams.

Seriously though, this whole comparison thing is rather silly. Major titles, win-loss ratio, winning first slam at the age of 16 - what can Aga show here, really? On the other hand, tennis is so much based on power these days, maybe Hingis would have not been so successful, was she 9 years younger. Just my 2c.
Nothing to be bitter about.

Radwanska is a bad copy of Martina.

She's right Radwanks is a great player, but she needs to win slams to be compared to Martina.

Maria Sharapova Na Li Francesca Schiavone Vera Zvonareva Petra Kvitova

Novak Djokovic Roger Federer Tomas Berdych Juan Martin Del Potro Richard Gasquet

Re: Hingis - Compare Radwanska to me when she's won a slam

Would Hingis have beaten Serena in a Wimbledon final?
Or Clijsters at the Australian Open?
Those are the likes that have beaten Aga deep in slams.
Uncharitable observes might say Hingis was lucky to win those most of the slams when the Williams sisters hadn't "arrived" yet (although I don't know what happened to Graf at that time ).

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?

Yep. It's like people who compared them have never seen Martina play.

lol what variety?

all pushwanska does is push the ball back to the middle of the court and wait for an UE from her opponent

Re: Hingis - Compare Radwanska to me when she's won a slam

Hingis is a FRAUD. She tested positive for cocaine in Wimbledon 2007.

The likelihood that she is a little Lance Armstrong of tennis is quite high. When their career is slipping away into obscurity the cheaters will try to compensate by increasing the dose. Thereby also increasing the chance of getting caught..
Hingis probably cheated all her career. Just like Lance Armstrong never really won a Tour de France Hingis probably never won a GS. But I'm glad she doesn't want to be compared to Aga.

Also: Hingis tactical skills are questionable. She couldn't handle junior Azarenka. Aga could. Perhaps Hingis the cheater thought she could take on junior Azarenka without cheating. Obviously she was wrong.
