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.

Re: Hingis - Compare Radwanska to me when she's won a slam

I'm not so sure about this. The h2h would have been a hell of a lot closer but I think hingis was just naturally a bad match-up. Even at her peak, seles wasn't that great a mover and her serve wasn't like serena's or davenport's for example. That why hingis struggled so much against those 2. They not only had great returns but tricky serves.

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.

Agreed. Seles pre-stabbing was a better mover no doubt. But she also hit with more spin and less power.

Martina is right

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