Martina was ranked lower and off tour much longer. I vote for her.

Re: Hingis/Zvonareva '06 vs. Serena/Santangelo '07 - which victory was more impressive?

I would say Hingis/Zvonareva '06 as Martina had been away for the tour for a longer time and Serena's game is a threat to anyone even it's at its lowest point but not so for Martina who would probably be crushed by whoever can consistenly punish the softballs and hold her serve.

Yes, and also I think she played a better match than Serena. Martina played some really beautiful points, never looked like she was going to be troubled at all, where Serena started off slow, made some errors but then after a while started to get into a rhythm

Re: Hingis/Zvonareva '06 vs. Serena/Santangelo '07 - which victory was more impressive?

I would say Martina. She was off the tour for 3 years (although her WTT did give her a taste of the the lower ranked players she should/would beat, and Vera was in a bit of a slump during that period). Both were impressive wins. Hopefully Serena gets a bit further in the tourney though

Re: Hingis/Zvonareva '06 vs. Serena/Santangelo '07 - which victory was more impressive?

Definitely Martina. Serena was impressive today, but she played an opponent who was perfect for her. She played someone who is slow and who hits a relatively flat ball. Really, Serena made it look like target practice. Hingis had been off the tour longer, and she came back and just played some beautifully constructed tennis against Vera. Vera I would say is also tougher and has more game than Santangelo.

Re: Hingis/Zvonareva '06 vs. Serena/Santangelo '07 - which victory was more impressive?

stop comparing hingis comeback with serena please.

serena never retired. hingis did.
serena just played few months back in US Open, hingis did not play for more then 3 years.

why do you'll need to compare players in every way?

Totally agree Franny, although Marti was impressive playing WTT in 2005, its a far cry from the WTA...Serena has been hanging around the last few months and hasn't accomplished too much so her victory yesterday although it was a dominate effort was one she should and did win....she, like Martina did have a tuneup tournament (Marti played two) but Serena's had less competition, both lost so they still have a lot to prove as the tournament progresses! Good Luck gals!
