Discuss.

similarities: short, great backhand down the line, not a powerful but can hit any spot, brilliant rallier, great dropshot and anticipation, quick around the court, creative, petulant at times, charming, non-American, injury prone? :sad:

differences: hingis likes all surfaces, coria improving on all but still clearly better on clay

All I know is that it was a good match until he got injured and I hope he can continie because if he can't, they may reshow the final from yesterday?

i dont think martina hingis was injury prone at all... just one big injury and she was out...

but yea-- other than that one, they are soooo similar.

they both have a menacing smile
hingis=chesgire cat
coria=??? someone help me here

I was just thinking that watching Coria today. He can hit every SHOT in the book and palys a lot like Hingis! The only difference is that men can hold serve much easier than women...so Coria may be good on hardcourts just is weakened by his more weak serve.

I don't see the resemblance.

I do think they're similar! And I enjoy watching both of them play :). Last year's French Open, when Coria reached the Semi's made me start watching men's tennis again. He's a really smart player!

Coria looks a bit like a rat, not that this is helpful for your comparison.

(and I say that as a fan)

I made the Hingis comparison earlier this week on msn to somebody or other.
