Martina 7-5 6-2!

So, as it turns out, I'm Miss Cleo.

Go Martina! :woohoo:

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:01 AM
Well done. But she should have closed out the first after leading 5-1.
Misa's serving stats are terrible despite a 67% first serve.

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:02 AM
Good job Martina. Who's next?

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:03 AM
Good match in all for Martina....

Had a lapse when leading 5-1 in the first set.....wasted 4 set points....

but other than that loss of 4 straight games, Hingis was in the best form since pre-injury at Indian Wells....

Convincing win, good stuff :bounce:

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:04 AM
Nothing spectacular but a nice, straight set, solid win for Martina in her opening match.

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:08 AM
Nice job Marti! Good luck in the third round!

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:09 AM
Martina :) Nice to have her back. First set shouldn't have been as close as it was, but a win is a win. Keep going. :)

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:10 AM
What kind of racquet was she even using? She had that all-white one at Wimby and now this all-black one that might not even be yonex.

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:15 AM
it is yonex. its one of the new sticks apparently. they will be introduced during the us open i heard. i'd like to see pictures.

well done martina :D :D :D

Yes a Venus fan trying to put down a Hingis win. No surprises.

Michaella was a Wimbledon quarterfinalist where she took a set off Bartoli, and beat Anna Chk at Wimbledon as well, for sure it was a very good win for Martina considering how bad her last tournaments have been.

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:33 AM
Great win Martina!! :bounce:

Now take the title :devil:

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:35 AM
Nice to see her back in form after the nasty wimbledon

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:38 AM
WOO HOO! I was afraid because Misa ain't no joke.

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:42 AM
Good win Martina! :D You probably would of lost to her in your Wimbledon form!

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:45 AM
:sad: The first set was horrible:rolleyes:
5-1 to 5-5

Hope that she can beat Patty/Alla @ the 3rd round

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:48 AM
yes ! ! ! a patty hingis match :) with both women fit. that would be awesome :drool:

Aug 1st, 2007, 04:58 AM
Great job to hang after tough first set Marti!

Aug 1st, 2007, 05:03 AM
WOO HOO! I was afraid because Misa ain't no joke.
Don´t forget Misa took Granville out at Wimbledon in straight sets, just after Laura had beaten Martina in straight sets in the previous round, add this to my previous post, definetly Misa was a good test for Martina.

Aug 1st, 2007, 05:16 AM
I agree. Having to play Misa in the 2nd round after the way she played Wimby was tough for Martina ... but its sometimes good to get through these types of matches. Im just happy that she's back out there and playing, hopefully ready to kick some butt! Go Martina ... we love you!

Aug 1st, 2007, 05:17 AM
Great win Martina... Welcome back!
Nice to see you healthy again.:)

Aug 1st, 2007, 05:53 AM

Aug 1st, 2007, 06:28 AM

Aug 1st, 2007, 06:34 AM
YAY Martina good match and nice turnaround from last few months.. Bad luck to Misa hope she can find some form now..

Aug 1st, 2007, 06:38 AM

Aug 1st, 2007, 09:57 AM
Misa:sad: :hug: next time better

Martina congrats,i hope she stays fit.

Aug 1st, 2007, 09:59 AM
This surprised me well done Marti!

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:00 AM
what makes me really happy isn't the scoreline or the match but hingis comments after the match

"I'm being re-born this year," said Hingis. "This is the first time in months that I've felt like myself on court. I'm still a little rusty, but it's nothing a few more matches won't cure."

Hingis missed on set points in the first before stealing the set and powering through the second.

"When I didn't convert my set points," she relaxed. "I was steamrolling at the beginning. I know where I stand now - and I'm standing pretty well."

she hasn't been this confident for sometime (more precisely since Tokyo)

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:02 AM
congrats Martina :yeah: :D

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:03 AM
Confidence is back ! :D

Then again, I said that right after she won Tokyo :tape: :lol:

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:09 AM
Confidence is back ! :D

Then again, I said that right after she won Tokyo :tape: :lol:

and she got injured immediately after that :tape: :tape:

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:13 AM
hehe, The biggest irony and tragedy would be that Martina would qualify for the YEC and then gets injured again... :lol: :help: :tape:

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:21 AM
Martin@ :bigclap: :bigclap: keep the form going!

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:30 AM
marti :clap2:

misa :hug:

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:34 AM
:) If Martina can close the first set like 6-1 or 6-2
this win would be MORE convincing

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:37 AM
Misa. :sad:

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:38 AM
well done
it was not an easy match on the paper
now take your revenge

Aug 1st, 2007, 10:40 AM
Marti! :yeah:

Aug 1st, 2007, 11:23 AM
Well done Martina. Seems like she is really over her injuries and has refreshed her head. Great to see.

Now who to cheer?

Aug 1st, 2007, 11:34 AM
Martina will be very fortunate to make it past the quarters. If she does, I don't see her beating Jelena. I'm glad she feeling better.

Aug 1st, 2007, 11:36 AM
nice win Martina!!! congrats!

Aug 1st, 2007, 12:00 PM
Congrats, Martina. Keep it up :yeah:

Aug 1st, 2007, 12:02 PM
Great win, Martina.

Aug 1st, 2007, 03:24 PM
Great... now.. keep doing it well Martina.. hopefully she just need time to bring back her "A" game.. get in tennis mode..

Is good she started with a tough test and from there begin the race..

Even, Im gonna be patience cause as I cant watch the match.. is just the score what is talking... so.. lets wait to see her infront a top ten player..

Aug 1st, 2007, 03:26 PM
Wow - convincing second set from Ms Hingis against the Wimbledon quarter-finalist. Congrats. :yeah:

Aug 1st, 2007, 03:35 PM
Let's go Hingis Let's go!!!

Aug 1st, 2007, 09:55 PM
this deserves a post, nicely done marti :yeah:

Aug 2nd, 2007, 12:40 AM
Congrats Martina :kiss: :hearts:

Aug 2nd, 2007, 01:37 AM
itll be weird with martina playing with a prince racket. shes been yonex for more than 15 years atleast. are there any other players that have stayed with a brand for such a long time like martina ? venus and serena have been wilson for about 9 years now. thats the closest that i can think of.
