View Full Version : Who would win a Graf-Hingis exhibition match?

As both have beaten Sabby soundly (although Sabatini was far worse today than last September in Berlin against Graf) that would be an interesting exhibition now.

IMO, Graf still would be to fast and powerful for Hingis. Maybe in some years when Steffi has 2 more kids Martina could play a match toe-to-toe with Graf. But then of course we have to consider the psychological edge Graf always will have. And Hingis isn't becoming younger as well ...


What do you think?

By the way Hingis won by a much bigger margin than Graf vs Sab.

Double bagel for Martina.

And Sabby probably let Graf win becuase it was a match to celebrate Graf having a court named after her...

The only bagels I remember when thinking of Graf-Hingis matches were in the YEC 96 final and in the Philadelphia 98 quarters. Hingis was on the receiving end each time ....

Hingis was near her absolute peak, won her first slam two months later, became #1 four months later.
And Graf was injured. We all remember how she had to cool her knee with ice-bags during breaks. Poor Steffi! :sad: :hug:

No way, Hingis' peak was more in 1999-2000;)! Maybe she had less success in those years than in 1997, but that's mainly because the competition got tougher! Put a 1999-2000 Hingis in 1997, and she would do even better;)!

Poor Martina had huge cramps in that 1996 final:hug::hug::hug:

Having said that, I think Hingis would win your little exhibition match;)!

She had a bum knee.

But yes, she was cold as ice in tennis matches.
Her mental strength! :worship:
Her coming-from-behind slam final wins!! :worship: :worship:
Her fencing off tons of off-court distractions!!! :worship: :worship: :worship:
As the saying goes, the tough get going when the going gets tough!

Compare that to Hingis:

A brat with a big mouth all the time.
Insults Novotna, Mauresmo, Graf.
Smirks when her opponent makes errors.

And THEN in the most important match of her career, when she met tennis legend Steffi Graf, when she wanted to show to the whole world that the could become the new queen, that her slam wins were no fluke - then she can't stand the heat, she is a sore loser, she runs crying into the arm of her mum.

One of the greatest days in sports ever.
A lesson in tennis. A lesson for life. The teacher's name was - Steffi Graf.

My pool of possible favourites is very small.

The players must have extreme talent. Including mental strength. They must have a modest, unassuming character. Their tennis must be elegant and graceful (no 2-handed BHs!). Women must haved beautiful legs too ...

But have some class, dont belittle a Karatancheva fan by throwing Graf's 10+ year career and 22 slams at a 16 year old girl (karatancheva, of course).

Hingis lost recently even to the THIRD-best German player, Marlene Weingärtner. How could she stand a chance against the (still) best German player?

Um, because Hingis isn't fit enough to play on the tour. An exhibition against a dinosaur, however, is certainly winnable.

A set and a break up, but then Hingis got bent out of shape over a call??? Only way Graf could win. Sad, isn't it??? Then Lindsay kicked her ass at Wimbly and sent her into retirement. She realized she could no longer hang with the power players.:p Hingis, btw. Graf wouldn't stand a chance.:lol:
