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

Don't know if that's really fair from Hingis, the slam comment anyway. She won all her slams before the rise of the big hitters finally overwhelmed her Aga has the court craft and skill to win a slam but it's hard when you know she's eventually going to have to face in in-form power player and that's a match-up that's never going to be very much in her favour...

Regarding their playstyles, I guess there are similarities, they both keep their errors low and win by forcing opponents into errors more often than not. They both love drop shots/lobs, both anticipate well, have good volleys...weak serves It's hard to deny all those. Lot of differences too though

I didnt say it was coming from Aga fans. (Fans, in general, always trying to present their faves as an unique competitor anyway.)
But should we just ignore/accept what professional pundits throwing in our face? Like this obnoxious:

Agatha has a better serve than Hingis.

Agreed, a bit more power and placement on Aga's. She's really improved that in recent times.

Hingis is too evil to be Gryffindor and too ugly to be a Slytherin. You think on that for a while Harry. Maybe the scar my words left on your cookie box will help you sort the truly good from the truly bad.

Only compare Aga to Hingis when Aga chokes away a final, breaks down sobbing, and needs her mother to carry her off the court.

Great point.

Imagine if we had a player with a cannon forehand and a slice backhand. She wouldn't go around asking to be compared to Graf....

As much as people don't think Aga should be compared to a legend like Hingis, Veskoboeva hasn't exactly done anything to get anybody's attention.
