stats imply hingis required a lower ranked player as opposition, otherwise her odds for winning were pretty low
That's a misleading stat because she played quite a few top players who were injured/did not play enough to get their ranking up. It's ridiculous to suggest that her victories in finals would have been more legit if she played world #3 Coetzer or someone like that
