I want Hingis back!! If not for her serve, she would be fine. She would be the Roger of the women's game. Hingis thinks so well on the court and she has SO much talent. Time to come back Hingis, no reason not to. With Jen and Lindsay retiring soon, she can beat Maria, Justine on anything but clay, and all the other Russians. The Williams sisters (more so Venus at this moment, but Serena will be back),and Kim are the only two players I really see as obstacles for Hingis.

Gosh I miss Martina so much. :sad: Her game is so lovely, and I think she is just so cute still! It seems she is just toying with Katerina. :worship: Her backhand looks so strange, mashed or something like Vaidisova. think the retro-court is funny too.

The original WTT courts looked like this, but w/o lines in the 70's.

:worship: Thank you for reminding me.
Hingis :hearts:. Her backhand is as deadly as ever, and if only she could develop some kind of flat forehand she would be tough. It's just soooooo good to see her playing again though. Her game (and her smile :p) makes me so happy.

I :hearts: the courts. They're like tennis disco-style or acid-style :p.

I seriously think Martina could come back if she somehow made her first serve her second serve and developed a *real* first serve. However, this may be wishful thinking.

Edit: Martina in doubles is :worship:, such great hands. I may be going over the top in my praise, but when I can get Martina these days, this happens.

Martina is hitting harder than in the beginning of the WTT season. :) She looks like she could compete in Australia.

I like Bondarenko's game a lot. She just makes too many errors. :o

You guys really think Hingis could compete with the WTA? I love Hingis and wished she'd come back, but I think she'd get beaten by a lot of people.

I know me too, I forgot to tell my sis to buy a tape for me in order to tape it. Oh man I hate my stupid memory.

Her records speak for themselves -- and she used to be able to handle the power players quite well. Were Venus, Serena, Lindsay, or Jen any worse a few years ago than today and today's top players? No, they were likely better, and Hingis was still in the top 5. However, it would take a LOT of dedication, and this from a player who, despite all her talent, perhaps wasn't the most dedicated in the first place.

It would be amazing to see her come back though. Imagine if she could somehow play even as well as she did in Australia 2002... she would do quite well for herself.

I mean, I'd love for her to come back, but it would take a lot of work. I'm not sure her ankles ... or her lazy butt ... could handle the hours and hours of daily training.

But it would be awesome if Martina would come back.

I think if she had won the AO 2002, she might not have quit. I think her spirit was broken at the AO 2002.

i cant wait for hingis to come back. the faster she comes back, the faster the big babes will drive her out of the game. i cannot wait. she deserves to be beaten by every big babe. hingis is, and always has been not a nice person. i hate her.
