MARTINA HINGIS

This is a thread to commemorate the OBSESSION that many on this board appear to have with Martina. I admit to being a bit obsessed as are most of Martina's fans. But for those who dislike Martina I wanted to ask why there is the obvious obsession with Martina's problems, struggles, injuries, etc?

What do you all think lies behind these weeks and weeks of threads portending doom and gloom for one of tennis's true prodigies? Any ideas?

Oh good. This is exactly what we need. Another thread about Martina Hingis where no doubt the exact same issues will be rehashed by the exact same morons that post the exact same threads EVERY SINGLE DAY. Give it a rest.

I'm not debating anything, but look at # of GS won, # of weeks at #1, and records for youngest either. The only thing I wanted to say is I hope she come backs fit, strong, and ready to win soon. I miss the Swiss Miss.

Take any of the following: Martina, Venus,Serena, jennifer, Kim...put them in the situation Martina is in and you will have tons of threads.

Arantxa Sanchez Vicario Always #1

Exactly Joseosu19. Throw in the fact that Hingis was a classless player at one time and you'll get these sort of things. Look at the difference between Davenport and Hingis in their absences. Some have long memories regarding Hingis' antics early on and don't seem to have mercy for her. I'm not saying it's right but merely pointing out why it's happening.

Listen. I'm not complaining about the content of the threads as much as I am the quantity of the threads. I agree, it's a big subject, one that should be discussed. And it has been. Over and over and over again. It does not need more threads, there is nothing new to say.

I think it is sad to see Hingis in this position. It´s always sad to see such a great champion go down like this. I think all people miss her in some way or other( players, fans and not-fans). I hope she has a fast recovery and joins the tour back soon!!

Well King Lindsay...why do you even bother coming in this thread if you are SO interested in discussing the subject??

To register my displeasure. I thought that was obvious.

Actually I was wanting to know what the motivation is behind those OTHER threads. This is not one of THOSE threads King Lindsay but you chose to lump it in with those. Actually I agreed with you and that was why I started this thread.

Also whoever stated that Martina was CLASSLESS is just clueless. Martina has always been highly praised by her FELLOW PLAYERS even by MONICA SELES and MARTINA and CHRISSY and MARY JO FERNANDEZ. Martina may have had her immature moments but she has had many wonderful moments. So stop dredging stuff from so long ago and look at the person Martina is know. If you think her game is not so good now, you can at least admit how much she has grown up.

Btw, let's not forget that an emotionally wrecked Martina Hingis was the one who came out and called Steffi a great champion in French in front of a hostile crowd. Why is it that that always seems to get lost?
