Re: Worst blown opportunity at RG for Hingis?
Hingis did win RG, as a junior. IIRC she was just 12 year old. Good luck ever topping that.
For me, 2000 and 2001 were biggest disappointments. At 2000 all she had in way of her were two of her regular pigeons, Martina could not POSSIBLY blow that, right...? 2001, in retrospect it is not a surprise she lost, but the way she lost, it was just infuriating. Capriati played TERRIBLY, she was spraying the ball all over Roland Garros arena, yet Martina put out which was possibly her worst match ever.
"Backhands should be hit with two hands, as should forehands. A Selesian's strength flows from the Holy Groundstrokes, but beware: sliced backhands, Graf forehands - the dark side of Selesianity are they. Easily they flow, but if once you start down the dark path, forever will Graf damnate your destiny - consume you she will..."
