Maybe a bruised ego????

Seriously, Swiss Miss will be around for a while. Just because Hingis might be injured doesn't mean she's retiring again.

A link to the article would be nice.

Injured Hingis loses in semifinals of first tournament back after three-year layoffJanuary 6, 2006



GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) -- Martina Hingis (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/3799/)' perfect record in her comeback tournament ended Friday with a 1-6, 7-6 (2) 6-2 loss to fourth-seeed Flavia Pennetta (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/193/) of Italy in the semifinals of the Australian women's hardcourt championships.

Hingis had her three-match winning streak in her return from retirement following three years away due to foot, ankle and heal injuries end. Afterward, she announced she would pull out of her scheduled semifinal doubles match later Friday with partner Tatiana Golovin (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/565/) of Russia due to an undisclosed injury. In the other singles semifinal Friday, Lucie Safarova (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/1279/) of the Czech Republic beat third-seeded Dinara Safina (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/170/) of Russia 6-4, 6-2 to advance to Saturday's final against Pennetta. Safarova beat top-seeded Patty Schnyder (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/92/) of Switzerland in the quarterfinals Thursday and sixth-seeded Ai Sugiyama (http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/players/113/) of Japan in the first round. Hingis is still scheduled to play in next week's Sydney International on a wild card and the Australian Open at Melbourne, a tournament she has won three times.

Relax everyone, it would just be because of the heat and she needs to rest. I don't know why she tried to do so much so soon, she should have played either the singles or doubles, not both. But I can't stress anymore that it wouldn't be anything serious.

Withdraw from doubles at this moment is smart decision, even if she is not injury.

i agree, but to be honest, i think hingis herself didnt know how far she'd go in each tournament. i dont know if she expected a semisfinals in both singles and doubles so lets look at this as a positive
:cool:

martina even surprised herself :worship:

By Joe you've got it!

I'm sure this is it. Tired from the 3 setter, and needed to get out of the hot Aussie summer conditions. She'll be in Sydney.

Yikes, she played 1 tournament and now she's injured? I hope to goodness that it's nothing serious or have anything to do with her knees or ankles. Right now, I'm guessing that it's soreness from playing so much and probably heat exhaustion. She probably played more than she expected and now will go to Sydney to get some rest.

Hingis beaten in comeback tournament
MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Former world number one Martina Hingis was defeated in the semi-finals of her comeback tournament on Friday when she lost 1-6 7-6 6-2 to Italian Flavia Pennetta at the Australian hardcourt championships.

Hingis, who retired in 2002 with foot and ankle injuries, showed glimpses of the skills that took her to five grand slam titles but faded after romping through the first set.

The 25-year-old Swiss said she had strained a hip-flexor muscle toward the end of the second set forcing her withdrawal from a doubles semi-final later on Friday.

"As a player and a competitor you try to overcome things like that and still play until the end of the match," Hingis told reporters about the hip injury.

"I don't want to take anything away from Pennetta, she played a great match.

"I was able to compete with her. It was great tennis and everyone enjoyed it.

"You can't always expect everything to be perfect with your body when you haven't done that much in three years.

"If I was to evaluate this tournament right away, I'm very happy and very positive about what I've achieved this week.

"I don't think anybody expected me to come out like this so it's pretty good."

Pennetta will now meet Lucie Safarova in the final after the Czech teenager beat third-seeded Dinara Safina 6-4 6-2 in the earlier semi-final.

Safarova had already disposed of sixth seed Ai Sugiyama in the first round and top seed Patty Schnyder in the quarter-finals.

Hingis is similar to Federer. They play the sympathy card. They exaggerate their injuries. They always talk about their hard road to recovery.

They can't admit when they get beaten, but they enjoy it when they beat injured opponents.

When Hingis and Federer's opponents suffered from injury, they arrogantly smirked at them. They must think they're mature!
SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Federer recently said, "I think criticism is allowed at this point." Roger Federer believes that criticism from tournament organizers of a spate of pullouts at the year-ending Masters Cup was fully justified.

Did you not read the part where Martina talked about Flavia? Are you blind? Of course she's gonna talk about her road to recovery, it's been 3 years and this is her first tournament back, what else can she talk about?

She played a bunch of doubles and singles exhibitions this summer. She played doubles again, but she didn't see any problem?
Pennetta was about to lose quickly and Hingis didn't serve well enough to finish the match.
The media and opponents pressured her to come back and she got overconfident. Her fans got false hope.
If she loses early all year, she will quit again.

Exhibitions don't require the same involvment...
Losing in 1/2 is rather a honorable result after a 3-years lay off...
Hingis has always been overconfident...
She indeed needed to close the match in 2 sets...
She indeed must feel some pressure uneasy to deal with...
Her fans don't have false hopes but only hope she will do fine...

1. I didn't expect Martina to go that far in this tournament : I'm very pleased with her results.
2. Don't forget, she has a total lack of match fitness : Such loss isn't dramatical
3. Haters are happy : Not a problem ! Martina hasn't to prove something anymore as she is a great champion.
4. I don't think this injury is that serious... The more competition she has in her legs, the less those kind of injuries will appear.
5. A come-back is a long way : Don't expect her already to destroy each opponents she plays...

Time for us Martians to focuss at Sydney and hoping she also can get there good results !
