Hingis interview Petrova

Is Hingis the interview giving to Nadia at Eurosport?

Did not Nadia call her 'soft tennis'?

Yes, Martina interviewed Nadia!!
I can't say what they talked bout 'cos my Russian commentator was giving his own stuff too loud

And later Martina watched Kim vs Lena match

...well, Hingis indeed did play soft tennis...

some people misunderstood this considering "soft" as meaning "weak" what was a mistake...

This is a classic example of someone getting a job because of their fame and with no regard for whether or not they have any TALENT to be an interviewer/correspondent.

They do it all the time in Wales with ex rugby players.

Hope Hingis's contract with Eurosport is short term!!

she was indeed a bit "wooden", but i think she'll grow into the job.

I look forward to more interviews from her and hopefully some commentating, like her name sake Martina Nav she has incredible insight into the game, one can pick up something useful when either of those 2 talk .......unlike, when listening the inane babblings of a Mary Carillo .

Why would it be in German?? Nadia is Russian and Hingis's English is probably just as good as her English.

yeah, one thing's for sure, Hingis can be a better commentator than the Queen of Clichee Mary Carillo...

Nadya has a great smile
