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

Eurosport interviewed Hingis just then and asked her about Radwanska and how she feels about them being compared. Martina didn't sound that thrilled about the comparison and said that Radwanska reminds her of herself "only a little bit" and also said they should only be compared if Radwanska wins a slam.

Do you agree with Martina that they aren't that similar?

She's right.

Agatha needs the big wins over top players and majors if she's going to be compared to Hingis.

Haven't seen this interiew, but Martina has been very critical of the comparison for a while now. Martina's boss Patrick Mouratoglou has also rejected the comparison.

Yes I agree and she is right, there's no shade here, simply truth.
I was big fan of Martina's game, I don't like Radwanska's game much.

You can compare players' styles even if their achievements are different. Of course Martina is much more accomplished, on the playing style the similarities go only so far.

The best of luck to all tennis players; The game is on!

P.S.Well,... special luck to Agnieszka Radwanska, Marta Domachowska, Daniela Hantuchova, Urszula Radwanska
Bally, Rest In Peace!

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

I think they get compared because they play a similar role - relying on craft, tactics, variety etc. in comparison to their more powerful rivals. Personally, I don't think of Martina when I watch Aga; I just think people see a correlation between them.

Muguruza
Kerber
Safarova Bertens

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

Lol, of course Hingis has accomplished more than Aga but they do show similarities in their games.

And we all know Hingis hasn't been very nice to other players in the past so I won't say anything about the 'don't compare because she hasn't won a slam'-part.

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

Hingis still bitter after that loss?

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.

Opinions
You know what inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan has to say about them...

She's right, but unnecessarily arrogant, which is par for the course for Martina.
