Martina is right

But if you look at the smart game Aga is the only one now who comes close to Hingis

They not only had great returns but tricky serves.
Agreed. Seles pre-stabbing was a better mover no doubt. But she also hit with more spin and less power.

Hingis came back in 2006 to a peak Mauresmo, Sharapova, Henin with Williams, Clijsters lingering around.

Clijsters came back in 2009 to...peak Wozniacki, peak Safina, peak Dementieva Looking at the 2009 US Open Wiki, only 1 player out of the top 8 made it past the fourth round Sooooo really there's still no comparison.

Hingis never played against the real Seles. Monica would have pounded her. The Williams sisters overtook Hingis due to power. We can debate which top ten was better Martina's or the one today. But there is no debate the depth of today women's tennis is much greater than when Hingis played in her best years. I am a Hingis fan from 1996 but Martina played at the right time for her career and her finesse stule of play. Seles sadly was not great player anymore after the stabbing, That was tragic. Graf was on the downside when Hingis won her slams and the Williams sisters were maturing and not ready yet. Credit to Martina for being a great player when she played. But in my opinion Aga plays in a tougher era of worldwide women's tennis to win slams than Hingis did. And there is no question that todays players on the average hit harder and deeper than when Martina was winning her slams. hey Hingis would probably hit harder than she used to if she played on the tour today.

Difference is that today there are too many ball bashers, during Hingis time there weren't much. If you ask me Gorges/Cirstea/Cibulkova/Rezai at 100% all match (just assume, will never happen though) is better than Seles, Graf, Davenport, Serena, Venus, Capriati, Pierce at 100%. The surface before was a lot faster which suits their style of play, that is why Radwanska has so much success on grass. Though Hingis is a let better at generating pace than Radwanska, Radwanska is not that much far away from Hingis.
