I had had to start another thread...JH vs.MH
-----------------Looking at it objectively-----------REALLY-----
*Lets not forget that players develop (so you can't say Martina won when justine was ranked in the 50's).
There is nothing that Hingis does/did better than Justine does now. Nothing(maybe 'thinking'). Justine hits the ball 2x has hard her serve is much better. Their movement and returns are = at best with Justine having a much stronger one.
Martina Hingis would never beat Serena 3 out of 4 times on Clay in two years(at serena's current level).
In 1997, Graf was injured, Davenport was slow and fat ,the Williams sisters were not 1/1000th the players they are today and Jenn was doing time in jail. Once they came into their own how slams did Hingis take home?...0
*The only player who's # Martina ever had was....Seles, sadly.
Martina was a weak 17/18 year old that did not cross training in the 1990's. Majoli played a 'semi-power' game to win the French and look how easly Hingis was blown off the court.
---And what's this 2 1st round losses at the all england club while the no.1 seed!---
MARTINA LEFT, cause she knew....that the Clijsters, Henin,Amelie,Capriati,Davenport,Williams, Hantuchova train was rolling...
ps. Did any of you watch some of Hingis's matches in the 90's, its like watching jrs. now. Just hitting to a person's backhand or forehand and hoping for an error. The Williams sisters have forced the top ten take their game to a new level. REALLY. If now a new level tech. then they sure added the word 'attack' into the wta handbook glossary.
Your JUST CANNOT PLAY Hingis' game NOW against the top 5....You'll get away with it against Dokic,Myskina and bellow but thats about it. You cannot spin your serve in any more or 'hope' for an error. Cause you'll be watching balls fly by.
