I was watching a tape of HBOs coverage of Wimbledon from 1999 when she was beaten in the 1st round by Yelna Doakich, and afterwards they asked an audience response poll question "Will Martina Hinigis ever win another Grand Slam?" The commentators (BJK and Martina Navratilova) thought the question was laughable, but she never did win a slam after that. Kinda creepy.

True, she hasnt won a slam since then. She had championship points against Capriati in Australia (I think about six :eek:). But yes, injuries played their part, bad memories (she lost again 1R Wimbledon 2001 to Ruano Pascual) and the Williams and more hard hitters of the game hindered her.
