Re: Why Is Hingis Called 'Legemd'?

That´s Smitten´s invention. IIRC, there was a mistake made in her name, it was written as L. Hingis and he started to call her "Legend" since then, while in fact, it was supposed to mean "Local".

Re: Why Is Hingis Called 'Legend'?

1) Martina was already taken.

2) Hingis is too formal.

3) Marty doesn't sound right.

4) She is a legend.

Re: Why Is Hingis Called 'Legend'?

She is the youngest Grand Slam champion of all time winning the Australian Open at age 16 years and 3 months


she is also the youngest no.1 of the history (16 years, 6 months in 1997)

Re: Why Is Hingis Called 'Legend'?

I've always thought it's because she achieved so much when she was still immature.
