Serena = 'I miss Martina'

Q. Do you miss good old Martina Hingis?
SERENA WILLIAMS: Of course. She was a joy to -- she was always fun. She was always smiling. I enjoyed playing her. Yeah, definitely miss her (laughter).
She was always really nice to me. When I was younger, it was different, because I was coming up, I didn't know much. You know, once I got to know her, she was really nice. Definitely kind of miss her being around. But she's happy now.

Q. Hingis came here. Have you met her?
SERENA WILLIAMS: I really wanted to see her. I didn't get a chance to see her. Missed her.


Is anyone else suprised by this comment? I mean I did not figure that they got on after the Davenport/Hingis 'pact', especially after some of the things that people and journalists said.

Journalist only depict what they want us to know. They feed on the negatives. Tennis is a very competitive sport...and what good is a rilvary if there is no heat to cook it up upon?

So i believe it. The same bodes for Davenport and Venus...Venus and Hingis as well.

I think they always came a long pretty well. I am sure they practiced together at one point when venus was not there

martina's real rivarly was with venus!
I don't think they liked each other at all (that said I doubt they even had a real talk with each other)

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

Venus also said that she missed Hingis too last year!

Hingis really did like Serena because Serena is herself much more confident than Venus. Venus, IMHO, distances herself much more from the other players because she needs that intimidation factor to feel more confident but Serena believes that she can be more sociable with Hingis, clijsters, etc and win with her tennis.

Hingis and Serena really do have a very high opinion of each other!

Or maybe Venus is just shy, aloof and introverted........

Hingis always got along much better with Serena than with Venus. At 1999 US Open, she and Venus barely shook hands(as always) while Martina gave Serena a hug after the final.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

I don't know where Truefiend gets his material I read that too...where Martina had said Venus e-mailed her when she was out with her foot injury...

Yeah Serena misses Martina alright, she misses kicking her ass on the world's big stages. It was actually sad watching them play in the 2001 US Open. Serena played a near perfect match (100% of first serves made in the 2nd set) and Hingis never looked so helpless out there.

why are there always people out there who trys to turn a positive post into a negative one. Here we're talking about how nice these two were and hot they got along and stuff and then someone has to come along and put competition into the thread. Wrong place honey.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

I do have to say that I miss Martina. She was a great player. Especially when her and Venus were playing their best against each other it was a war. the us open 2001 semis was the best match seen in a long time.

People keep saying Justine is the new Martina, but IMO Martina had so much variety and was so crafty on court. And she had an off putting personality at times, but she was no cheater. lol

Anyways, Martina is missed in my book.
