Sorry Martina Hingis Fans

You guys should give us a break with Martina that and that threads
all around here. Do you people think she retired because of injury?
I don't think she categorized it herself that way.
When asked why she retired so early? She replied: I used to be on
up as number one in the world by playing every tournament and that
helped me to keep my ranking for four years but right that even doesn't
seem to help, so my interest in the game had gone away. In other words
she refused to admit that there are few players whom she can't beat
to get back to the top and even the unseeded players have discovered
her game so there is no need to keep playing whereas it will be even
difficult to win a tournament.
Graf is a great player but I have not seen that many graf's threads
around. I don't why you people can take Hingis' legacy to her website.

Graf is not a talented player, that's why.

anyway, you have the right to create 100 graf threads here. no one's stopping you.

hi nuri

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

Please don't compare Steffi to Serena...that's blasphemy in my opinion.

this is so stupid, martina is the youngest grang slam champion of the 20th century and she held the most grand slams on tour before she retired(apart from seles) so ofcourse theirs going to be threads about her every day. and yeah she may not be able to dominate certain players its not as if they were thrashing her, last time her n serena played it was three sets and when she played Venus she lost 6-3 7-5(and she was on painkillers for the ijury she would have to recieve surgery for) thatsnot bad if you ask me

Graf has no personality then.

It's as if creating a "lets not talk about Hingis anymore" thread is supposed to alleviate the "problem" by bringing less attention to Hingis. Wow, that even makes less sense when I write it out then it did when I thought it.
