Martina Hingis Admiration Thread
I know, I'm an unlikely person to start this thread, but I agree, there really should be a thread dedicated to this great tennis mind. While we all (most do anyway) how much I'm partial to Steffi, I always thoroughly enjoyed watching Martina Hingis play. I had the fortune to watch her go through a warm-up prior to a match at Indian Wells years ago, and all she did was hit balls all over the court, and could take anything and everything her male hitting parter could give her, and nearly always put the ball in the best place to make getting to it and doing anything with it very difficult. And she wasn't even breaking a sweat- she seemed to just know a fraction of a second early where to run, and she had some of the best hands I've EVER seen, male or female. I never posted anything here before, because I was still clinging to a hope that she might make another brief return. I miss watching her play.
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
