Legend, Lindsay vs Mauresmo

its clear they dont love amelie.

1999 AUS OPEN
Hingis was asked after the semifinals about the difference between Mauresmo now and when they played last year in a Federation Cup match.

"She's here with her girlfriend. She's half a man," Hingis was reported to have said.

On the same day, Lindsay Davenport said she thought at times she was playing against a man in her loss to Mauresmo.

The remarks by Hingis and Davenport were widely reported in the press and on television.

While Hingis denied the "half a man" comment, Davenport angrily insisted the next day that she was referring only to Mauresmo's muscular play, especially the way she slugged onehanded topspin backhands unlike other women.

After the final, Hingis said she had "nothing to apologize for," and refused to talk about the issue.

Re: Legend, Lindsay vs Mauresmo

14-3 for Linds vs Amelie.

More lopsided than I thought. Davenport was better-but not by THAT much.

In Davenport's defense she issued an apology of sorts to Amelie, didn't she?

Then we have Momo at 7-7 vs Hingis.

Martina made the "half man" comment in her Swiss/German dialect if I recall, with few understanding it until it leaked. What a story it made! It was sort of a witchy/bitchy comment to make. Not taking it back only made it "worse" for Hingis.

Give the Swiss Miss credit for not bowing to WTA handlers at least. It made her a real person in my view, with a real personality. Yes, she was in the wrong, but it made for a great catfight-type story.

The flip side is she more or less "outed" Amelie. Things didn't turn out too bad from Momo being outed. She was open about her sexuality and became a French martyr/heroine as a result.

Too bad the final was such a bust.

Does anyone have video of Momo vs Martina in Paris? How brave of Hingis to even go on court vs Amelie in Paris-unless she was totally clueless. One has to wonder how much her comments about Mauresmo played into the negative reactions of Parisians in her French final vs Graf.

1999 was a busy year with unforgettable tennis and off court drama to match it.

Davenport was referring to Mauresmo's one-handed topspin power when she said Mauresmo played like a man. Granted it was an unfortunate phrasing given the furor caused by Hingis' comment, but it was meant to be analytical, not snide. Lindsay did write an apologetic note Amelie.

Hingis' case is a little worse. First she made the half a man comment, caused a furor, then tried to backtrack and use Davenport's "I'm saying she plays like a man, I'm not calling her a man" line, then got called out for that. Dig that hole a little deeper, Martina. Because lying about how you meant something is much more honest just making a lying apology.

Mauresmo vs. Hingis at the FO was "Allez! -- Boo! -- Allez! -- Boo!" Once again, the match was a dud. Hingis totally knew she had to take control right away, and the grudge match aspect was so hyped that it had to hurt Mauresmo. Best to leave the grudge match stuff to Graf.
