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

stupid comment from hingis (if she really said it), because comparing styles of tennis doesn't have anything to do with how many slams the respective players have won.

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

Radwanska's game doesn't have the flow of Hingis'. She looks disinterested and grumpy on the court. Her serve is ugly, groundstrokes look awkward. Hingis was not only easier on the eyes, her style was very appealing too. That weak serve was aesthetically 100 times better than anyone except Serena's. At least to me. Her game had a unique beauty to it that had more to do with the way she hit her shots than its variety.

Hingis is right! Comparing her game to Radwanska's when Radwanska actually hasnt used the supposed skill set to win a slam only diminishes Hingis' achievements as fluke

Problem lies where people want to justify Radwanska's "elite status" by comparing her to Hingis.

Who has done that exactly? I know the comparison has been floating around for a while, but I don't have the impression that it's particularly coming from Aga's fans. I think the comparison is more popular among sports journalists with a deadline and nothing interesting to say.

Well she's right.

It's kinda insulting to Hingis' game by comparing it to Radwanska's...

Most of the time she's right which makes it hard to complain...

She's not right. Most people are not comparing their achievements. They're comparing playing styles. So the fact that Aga hasn't won a slam is irrelevant.

Didn't she say before the Wimbledon final something along the lines of "out of the whole tour her style is most like mine"?

That's not what I was agreeing with.

Hingis saying that they're not really similar is what I was agreeing with.
