Martina Hingis's Best Matches?

I'm looking into buying some of Martina Hingis's matches.

I prefer matches when Martina wins.

What match or matches would you recommend a must have for a big Martina Fan.

I did not follow tennis when Martina sprung onto the scene and collected so many titles, so I would love great matches, tight matches, matches she comes from behind etc.


I already have Aus Open 98 & 99, FO 99, US Open 97 and I'm going to get her other two Grand Slam single wins.

Thanks in advance

I think

These are the best matches:

Martina vs Serena Australian Open 2001
Martina vs Venus US Open 1999
Martina vs Seles Australian Open 2002
Martina vs Seles Chase 2000
Martina vs Seles Roland Garros 97

MARTINA HINGIS 4 EVER

if you want an undisputed classic that martina actually wins, you want hingis-serena australian open 2001.

Id get the 1996 Chase Champs final where Hingis lost to Graf in 5 sets!!

I know she loses, but she is only about 15 or so and she pushes graf to 5 sets whilst she is suffering from cramps etc...even though she loses, you can be proud of her watching the match..

+ you have to get the 2 US Open Semi final classics vs Venus, 1999 + 2000 I think,

+ the 2001 Aus Open QF vs Serena..thats awesome..

Depends on whether you're just looking for matches Martina won really.

French open semi against Monica in 1997 was a good win not mentioned yet.

Good matches she lost include the Wimbledon semi against Novotna in 1998.

Chase Championships 2000 against Monica. (highly recommend )
Australian Open 2001 against Serena Williams
Australian Open 2002 against Jennifer Capriati (better only watch the first two sets)
Swisscom Challenge 2000 against Lindsay Davenport



So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
So this is love


A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep, in dreams you lose your heartaches, whatever you wish for, you keep

aussie open 2001 against serena. that was pure drama

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
