Way to go Martina!!! I was hoping for a double bagel,but i'm happy of that score!
Low 1st serve %-that's worrying. Martina won almost twice as many points as Bammer :)
Next is likely Davenport, I hope Martina can find weapons against her and beat her!

maybe the serve % was low because she was practicing it since she figured Bammer was no threat.

Nice win! But Martina will definitely have to serve better if she's gonna beat Lindsay (assuming Lindsay wins today of course).

It's a shame she'd have to face Lindsay so early, we'll see what happens though.

Man, Martina keeps getting super-tough draws ... I know it's to be expected, but it's still frustrating. I think JHH and Davenport are the only two who will 100% beat her. She can beat Sharapova, and Dementieva's form was off yesterday.

But those four are the big threats ... why does she have to play Lindsay so early? :sad:

Awesome win Martina :bigclap:, that first set was dominating stuff. Good luck against (probably) Lindsay :unsure:, it's going to definitely be a toughie.

:sad: Sybille, but a nice tournament :)

That second set was more of a challenge than I expected...or more than it should have been? In any case...Nice going Martina! Beat Davenport!

Overall, I think she's had AMAZING draws this year, really. Only two bad ones were getting Justine early in Sydney and maybe Linds in the 4th round here.

I'd certainly not consider her Dubai draw as amazing. She had to face Sciavone in rd. 2, Kuznetsova in qf and Mauresmo is semis. It was undoubtedly the toughest section.

She got luck at the AO. She had to play a seed first round, and then was drawn to play Mary Pierce in the third round, but she was beaten before then. Same story on the Gold Coast where Schiavone was beaten early.

But moving on, another good win for Martina today :bounce: :bounce: I'm looking forward to the Lindsay match, but i'm also :scared: at the same time ;)

Martina Hingis bad draws won't last long though, she's moving up the rankings fast as she has no points to defend. She will be top 20 soon, top 10 etc. :hug:

Notice that I'm not saying Martina is going to beat Lindsay..I mean this is definitely going to be the strongest most powerful opponent she will face in her comeback so far.

1. Martina must get a high percentage of first serves in. Lindsay will clock her second serves like crap if she doesn't.

2. Martina must mix up the pace Lindsay does not like it when a player changes the pace. I suggest Martina hit low slices to Lindsay's forehand..I notice that Justine uses this strategy against Lindsay very effectively.

3. Martina must move Lindsay around..because she has the superior mobility. Although Lindsay has definitely improved her movement I feel that Martina can use her speed and expose Lindsay by using angles to move her wide off of the court.

4. Martina should try to hit some drop shots.,Lindsay doesn't move well up and back...she also is a bit uncomfotable at the net when it is not on her own terms.

5. Martina will have to have some luck. She will have to hope that Lindsay is somehow off..or a bit nervous or loses concentration. If Lindsay is a bit off or a bit nervous she has a chance. If Lindsay is on..well..she has less of a chance...

6. All in all regardless of the result perhaps Martina will really see where she can improve in her game..what she needs to do...She already will be in the top 30 very shortly...but now..its a matter of figuring out what she needs to do to get back to the top. By playing Lindsay Martina will find out what she needs to do to reach the next level.

Well Done - At least that you can jump really high to hit a ball because Sybille hits really high in the air but one day its will be higher than Mars!

Well the thread about Bammer giving Marti a real test, has gone up in flames. :sad: Very expected, but I'm still sad for Bammer!

I just watched the 2nd set of this match and Bammer did her best. She was really in most of the points but Martina always had the answer!!! I think this will def. move Bammer up ahead of her previous High ranking of 59, and Martina is about 28th now...Come on Marti!!!! 4 more matches to GO!!!!!!!!! :wavey: I am just too excited!, P
