I saw the interview this morning on British Eurosport. It was with Annabel Croft.
Hingis did agree with Annabel Croft that Radwanska has improved especially her 1st serve but she did say something like "she needs to at least win a Slam first before you compare us" - I knew there was gonna be a thread on GM about this!

She wasn't really that complimentary about Radwanska at all...

Really, when she says something like this it only feels that she's afraid of comparing her game to Aga's. Why else would she say she needs to win a slam? If Hingis considers herself so much better then slams don't matter, it's her game they're talking about.

Oh for God's sake, I'll draw my conclusions when I see the video

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit.

Because she probably thinks that Hagatha isn't fit to shine her shoes, let alone being put in the same sentence as her when it comes to tennis talent?

Hingis is such a sour cow, but she usually gets it spot on when it comes to shading the tours biggest vultures.

Grassonkova.

Game, Set & Mats begins in 10 minutes, perhaps they'll have the interview again in the show.

Wow, I am surprised at her reaction.
I thought she likes being compared to Aga, not Caro.

This reaction was unncessarily abrupt.

But do you think this rebuke was really necessary?
She did not need nor have to go that far

Martina of late 2002 was out of shape, serve-less and could not hit the ball harder than a 12 year old. This coming from a Martina fan. Martina pre-2002 is the vintage Martina that should never be compared to Aga and would absolutely wipe the floor against the big hitters of today.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

Will you then come up with this nonsense than Serena and Venus were lucky to win their slams, because this fantastic player hadn't arrived yet when Serena and Venus dominated and call their domination a 'transition period' before this amazing new champion appeared?
Serena has won slams between 1999 and 2012, Venus between 2000 and 2008. They dominated for years whereas Hingis won 3 of hers in one year and all between 1997-99. It could be like Hewitt who won a couple of slams between Sampras and Fed - Hingis won some between Graf and Williams sisters

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

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

Like she wiped the floor with the big hitters in her comeback?

At times, yes. She basically routined all the top 50 ranked power players (when she wasn't extremely injured, hence her defeats against the likes of Mirza a week after defeating them 6-1 6-0 ), and definitely didn't struggle against the top power players (Venus, Sharapova, Davenport)

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit.
