I'd say Hingis too. Graf had a longer, more complete career, so I wasn't so sad when she retired.

I missed Steffi when she retired cos... She was Steffi! And she had nice hair.

And for a long time I didn't like Martina (cos of the steffi thing) but then in about 2001 I liked her and... It sucks that she stopped. She was a character and a pleasure to watch.

So... It's hard but I miss Martina more. Steffi had done it all and had been around for years and years... I feel Martina had more to contribute to my tennis enjoyment. *translated into... Diva thinks Martina's hot*

I miss Hingis more cos unfortunately, she falls into the Monica category of "we'll never know". She just ended abruptly. And to think she was hardly injured.

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

I miss them both. Steffi always found a way to win, no nonsense. You never doubted her resolve. She could put someone in her place like no other player. She never made excuses either, unlike many of today. If she lost, she lost, no poor-mouthing, Steffi almost always respected the winning opponent. I can think of about two times in her whole career when she was a bitter loser. Today, I can think of about twice each this year for most of the top women where they dismissed the loss. It was a very different generation.

I liked Hingis' arrogance and smart mouth. She also ripped tons of chicks too, mostly easily. She was great to watch. It is what all the top players think, only she was open about it. When she was in her prime, all that arrogance was deserved. She could slice and dice anyone, and it was usually easy.

Those women were great. I miss them both.

Slightly silly question, if it was a serious one. Don't mean to be rude

Steffi had a full career, with 22 slams, including being victor in her last but one.

With each slam that goes by, and each birthday nears, there is a feeling that Hingis is missing out, wasting her prime - and should be playing!!!

So that's an easy answer, really - we all MISS Hingis.

However, we CHERISH Steffi, as we do Navratilova, Evert, Sanchez-Vicario....and soon, Seles.

For sure Graf. The only thing I miss about Hingis is seeing her get destroyed by the power players.
