I was watching Hingis Vs Ruano Pascual 4-6 2-6 R1 2001

I think the match sums up the latter part of her career : NO CONFIDENCE.... it was petty distressing seeing her look like she was goin to break down.. at the actual time of the match.. i wasn't a hingis fan.. now I miss her... looks like she won't ever come back to the tour

I think Hingis just had bad vibes from Wimby cos of what ahppened in 1999 etc.

She did play great at the AO final just not well enough to beat the capster.

i think she did say that she wasnt feeling very well (injury, illness?)
but because she had a pretty good record against ruano pascual, she decided that she might pull out the win anyway

i mean you've got to be feeling pretty awful to serve and volley after a second serve (and we know martina doesnt have a good one)

She had back tendonitis after falling off her horse just days before that match, so I don't think she was feeling that well. She said after that she should have listened to her mum and withdrawn.
