Did she really say this? What was the catalyst for it?

To discount physicality would be like saying Yao Ming wasn't helped by being tall. Although to say brute force and no power seems silly when any tennis player knows good timing is a key ingredient to creating pace.

Not to mention Serena's foot speed has always been one of the many major upsides in her game.

Serena is jealous of Hingis and of Sharapova and of every other woman who dresses well and is liked by men

Re: Is it fact or Jealousy? Martina hingis on Serena Williams

This isn't the full quote, if I remember it rightly. She see the force and power, no finess was a gamestyle she couldn't respect but she was forced too!

I kinda think Hingis was biased, and gave greater merit to a certain skill set ie finess, court craft, anticipation. Though I think Hingis now has great respect for serenas game

Hingis, Sharapova and Serena all very different, gorgeous women.

Re: Is it fact or Jealousy? Martina hingis on Serena Williams

Was unable to find a direct link to the article. However, the referenced quote was probably
"Playing (Serena) it always felt like playing a steamroller. No subtlety, no finesse, just raw, loud power. To respect this style of play was always a bit tough for me, but of course I had to, because the rules of tennis don't state that having a beautiful game is required to become No. 1."
Honestly, before 2002, that was a fairly accurate assessment, and that would have been the timeframe Hingis was referencing, since she retired in 2002.

'Serena is jealous .... oh God I think I'm dying. That's like Jon Isner is jealous because he isn't as tall as Henin.

Sorry I much prefer Serena. Maybe because I am black so it may be a cultural thing. Give me a hip hop music video girl over a Victoria's Secret model all day everyday

Dredging up a quote from at least six years ago?
