Martina is Caroline's idol. Caro has a great shot of repeating Doha & Dubai sweep. Gosh, that was 10 years ago, time goes by so fast...

Martina always said this was one of her best tournaments, that's because she got to ride the horse afterwards and they "dolled" her up to look like a real princess:hearts::kiss::bounce::worship: What's not to love!:worship:

new martina hingis interview :) :) :) ( 03 march 2011 )

Finding Martina Hingis in the Floodgate estate these days is not a surprise. The former tennis player who dominated the world rankings between 1997 and 2001, accompanied her husband, Thibault Hutin, involved in 4 Atlantic edition of the Tour.

But the presence of former world number one has stolen the spotlight with some of the world's best riders. Nothing that Hingis is not accustomed to.

Away from the courts, the 30 year old Swiss continues to smile ready and available to chat, sign autographs or interviews like this one that she gave the audience during the third visit to Portugal.

How do you feel in your new life away from the rider and courts?

I always liked to compete with my horses and that's how I met my husband. Sometimes it's good to do anything without pressure. It's something completely different than tennis, though sometimes frustrating, because I was number one for four years in a row (in tennis) and I don't have the same level in equestrianism or any ambitions.

It is a very different sport then tennis, we have to concentrate for a minute, but when wrong it is done, over. In tennis, we have more time, we could lose a set, wake up and win. It is also an expensive sport and you don't earn the same amount of money. When I earned a check for 1500 euros, it seemed to me to be missing a zero [laughs]. But thanks to tennis, I have money for this sport. I have two horses in competition here with me and have another for playback.


I remember you had a fall from a horse five weeks before the first final of Roland Garros, the only Grand Slam that you had never won ...

I was 17, but did other sports like horse riding, skiing ... I've always liked variety in my life. If I only played tennis it just wasn't me. I like to move, the speed, but do not go to the limits. I always had that lifestyle and physical fitness I was always outdoors.

I like to be flexible so as to be equally flexible on the court and have different game strategies. This fall may not have helped me at Roland Garros, but maybe it helped me win Wimbledon, a few weeks later.

And the other end, in 1999 [lost to Steffi Graf, 4-6, 7-5, 6-2] you received a point penalty for having moved to the front of the court to check an opponent mark (when winning by 6 - 4, 2-0) and eventually turned the public against you?

This I also would have liked to have won. I regret this more. I was winning 6-4, 5-4, 30-30, two points from victory, but my serve was not working. People are always reminding me of that, especially journalists [laughs], the rest do not usually think about it. In fact, recently I was reviewing the video with my husband and I was surprised at the level of play, and with the high-quality of tennis. I lost in the end, but it was a great game tennis quality, good points, long exchanges of the ball, very tactical ... I am also proud to have made history, because it was a meeting which was voted by fans as the best ever [vote online at the official site of the WTA Tour].

You finished in tears at the end and did not want to return to court for the trophy ceremony. What do you remember of that time?

Yes, of course it was an end with much emotion, because I wanted to win. But there were always stories about me. I've always been very emotional, always smiling when I was winning, when I was losing I was angry. At that time there were players with very different personalities, there were the Williams sisters, Capriati, Seles, Kournikova, different guys with different styles ... it was a good time for tennis. Today, all players have the same style, one-dimensional.

This lack of variety of styles was one of the reasons you returned in late 2005?

I felt I still had a chance and it was always best to do it at 25 years than at 30. I was proud to have reached No. 6 in the world again. Today it's amazing what happened to Kim [Clijsters], reaching number one.

I don't know if it is harder to reach the top, but tennis is more physical, there are more players with a high level, like Jankovic and Wozniacki, and veterans are still in the circuit like the Williams sisters (when they play well), also Li Na at 28 to reach the final of the Australian Open ... Even Serena, when she is physically well, is amazing. The older generation of players can play tennis better, more technical, because they have a better education/experience. The newer ones play more standard tennis, when things are going well, they have no plan B.

The return of Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters did not motivate you for a second comeback? Wouldn't you have like to have left the circuit another way than the accusation of cocaine use that precipitated your final withdrawal in 2007?

That's already history, but of course it is not the way I wanted to leave a mode where I was on top for so many years. It's one thing I can not change. I made a return that was successful and ready.

Your current connection to tennis comes down to commentating for television and radio?

It's more to follow some young players at the Academy that my mother has in Zurich - we have the best under-14 European, Belinda Becici you will hear about her!. I play two to three times a week with friends, do some exhibitions.

I'll play the Legends tournament [proof of veterans] at Roland Garros, and perhaps at Wimbledon, and then the Team Tennis [team competition very popular in America, which joins current and former champions] - always liked the team spirit!. I don't need any special preparation because I'm always doing different sports.

Current players you would like to see more?

The new, the one that is on top Caroline Wozniacki. I think she is very effective, makes the most of her abilities. But only when she wins a Grand Slam will she have the recognition from the world of tennis. I played with her about three times when she was 20 or 30 in the world and she has improved considerably. Her serve, is very consistent and, of course, dispute many tournaments. What she lacks is a major, because that is where you have to beat the best when they are at their maximum.

Know some Portuguese players?

I know Michelle Brito, hit balls with her a couple times, three years ago in an exhibition in Liverpool and again in the U.S.. When I was young, I had potential, but today it takes more. Physically being small is such a deficit, so she has to work harder in other areas. Like me: who was not very tall or strong, all the rest had to be very good, almost perfect.


what do you thinks ?

tennis it was not boring with martina hingis , i miss the hingis era :) :)

Any tournament you go to, you want to win it.
Martina Hingis

He is still my father. He is still a person I know I could trust and he would never do anything against me. Once you're at the top, there are not many people like that. People always want something from you.
Martina Hingis

Honestly, I'm more into the computer, the Internet, and checking out scores or the news.
Martina Hingis

I always give Lindsay so much credit for her tennis game, for her attitude, for her person, and because of how she deals with all the things. I don't think people give her enough credit for how well she's doing.
Martina Hingis

I didn't have the same fitness or ability as the other girls, so I had to beat them with my mind.
Martina Hingis

I don't think it's a low point being in the finals of the French Open, three points away from the victory.
Martina Hingis

I grew up on the tennis court with lots of other kids. There were like 40 kids all afternoon and I was one of the youngest ones, so I always had to chase everybody to keep up.
Martina Hingis

I have good anticipation, and good reaction to the the ball because I've played so many matches in my life.
Martina Hingis

I still speak Czech with my parents because I was born there.
Martina Hingis

I think the whole boycott thing was a bit too much. It's because we're accomplished so much in women's tennis in the last two, three years. We deserve something better.
Martina Hingis

I was always at peace because of the way my mom treated me.
Martina Hingis

I'm glad you're doing this story on us and not on the WNBA. We're so much prettier than all the other women in sports.
Martina Hingis

I'm not saying I'm something special. I might play a little better tennis than other people, but it is because I was given the chance, and not many people are.
Martina Hingis

I've lived for 10 years in Switzerland, so I speak German.
Martina Hingis

No, because I think I have a reason to believe in myself and I think I'm also pretty confident about who I am and what I'm doing and it might be because I'm still at the top too.
Martina Hingis

Now that I beat Lindsay I feel much better.
Martina Hingis

Right now I like baseball, hockey and tennis players. And horseback riders.
Martina Hingis

Sometimes I wouldn't give an interview because I didn't have the time or something else was more important. So they come up with a story which I don't think is always true, but they have to sell papers.
Martina Hingis

Sometimes you want to make your own experiences.
Martina Hingis

That's one of the reasons I moved to Florida. Of course, the main reason is the weather and the training. But there's more jealousy in Switzerland because it's so little and they don't have so many athletes.
Martina Hingis

today on blick.ch

http://www.blick.ch/love/schweizer-sex-symbole-168187

the swiss women the most desirable on the bed by swiss men :) :) :)

martina hingis is the three :) :)

Michelle Hunziker 47%
Kerstin Cook 15.6%
martina hingis 12%


in the men , roger federer is the 1 :) :)

The results of a survey of infidelity portal Ashley Madison, which surveyed 1207 Swiss citizens about cheating.

47 percent of respondents would be proud Michelle Hunziker (34) is a sin. The presenter is the desire for a partner of the Swiss men's infidelity. In second place follows the currently most beautiful Swiss woman. 15.6 percent were Miss Switzerland Kevin Cook (21) is not pushed out of bed, dreaming of another twelve percent double with ex-tennis star Martina Hingis (30). "The fact that I am called, together with our sex symbol of Italy, I am surprised, " said Kevin Cook.

And the Swiss women? They're like smart and successful: How would 38.4 percent of women in tennis champion Roger Federer (29) definitely do not say no. In 21 percent of the heartbeat at rapper Bligg (34, "Rosalie") is higher and 19.2 percent is slightly tight in the calves of footballers Hakan Yakin (34).

But why is it strange? 73.3 percent give an "unfulfilled love life", it is 14.5 percent "of the partner has become too thick."The entire study can be found here.
