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

I actually don't find their games to be that similar except superficially. But with five slams, maybe Hingis doesn't have to be so uptight. Reminds me of when someone asked Pete what was the difference between him and Pat Rafter and he said: about 12 slams [however many was the difference at the time]. He got a lot of flack for saying that. It was funny.

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

I see time (and the 1999 FO final) haven't done much to mellow Martina's notorious haughtiness towards other players. Oh well.

I love Martina, maybe even more then Aga, but she's not right there. Poeple say that htey've got similat games, that's all. And they do. Of course Martina had better almost everything and probably will still have much bigger achievements when Aga edns her carreer but still we can see similarities. Martina had great net game - Aga's very good, both use it often. Martina had amazing touch - Aga's very good. Both have better backhand than forehand, both second's serve is weakness, both use slices a lot, both had variety (Martina's much better). Both are great movers (Aga's better), both have great anticipation (Martina's slightly better), both great redirecters...and many more.

Her game had a unique beauty to it that had more to do with the way she hit her shots than its variety.

She has a fantastic service motion.

You're just seething cause you'll never see Sharapova chipin'n'chargin'.

Who has done that exactly? I know the comparison has been floating around for a while, but I don't have the impression that it's particularly coming from Aga's fans. I think the comparison is more popular among sports journalists with a deadline and nothing interesting to say.
Yup.

How I love these theories

Let's say that in 2015 the WTA will see a brand-new amazing player who does everything better than the Williams sisters.

Will you then come up with this nonsense than Serena and Venus were lucky to win their slams, because this fantastic player hadn't arrived yet when Serena and Venus dominated and call their domination a 'transition period' before this amazing new champion appeared?

She improved her rankings and result in past 1,5 year because of her endurance, defensive play and serve.

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

Why is Hingis so pressed? Clinging on to Radwanska's coat-tails is getting her some relevance

I think she has a general idea where she needs to take her tennis next regardless of what is written by tennis journos. She would never achieve what she already has if she listened to what people say on the internetz.

Hingis had a neutral H2H against the WS.

If anything, they were maybe lucky that she was injured so they could go on that spell of dominance from the 2002 FO-2003 AO.

You seem agitated, feeling a bit nervous about the prospects of an Agatha-Martha SF, Pavstry?

most of her wins over serena came when serena was young and before 2002. besides, capriati began to own hingis so the WS were the least of her problems. and don't forget the belgians hitting their stride around that time. who knows how many times she would've had a chance to face a WS.

He should be. It took Peak Sharapova to barely beat a tired Aga in Instanbul.

Clock her!

Hingis was finished once te Williams sisters (and other players) started playing better, they punchedT her out and her bruised ego couldn't take it. Hingis and ha stans will just have to deal.
