Yes Serena really brought it against Martina.

But still Hingis was 6-7 against her, with quite a few of those losses coming after Martina really started to fall off the map.

All of Serena's wins came on American hard-courts BTW. Their only match on clay, Hingis gave Serena one of the most embarrassing losses of her entire career. 2-0 on Rebound Ace. They never played indoors/carpet, a surface which would have greatly favored Hingis during her first career.

BTW Hingis got screwed bad in that Miami match, got a bad call on set point in 2nd set, ended up losing.

It's actually funny how similar those Miami 99 and USO 99 matches are! Serena is zoned out for most of the first set, Hingis turns the tide in the second set, earns set points, but blow her chances. Serena wins 2nd set TB. Almost the exact same match...
