Re: Serena: Hingis would be Top 10 for sure

They are cool now. But Venus would prolly say something about women's tennis depth.

What shade? She made the comment in a private conversation.

Her singles form seemed to impress more than just herself: the Kastles’ owner, Mark Ein, said that Serena Williams, in attendance at one of the Kastles’ matches, told him she believed Hingis would be “top 10, for sure” if she came back to singles.

What seems to be lost is do we consider a quote that someone told someone else a reliable source it's not like this quote is directly from Serena?

Re: Serena: Hingis would be Top 10 for sure

I don't know if I trust that quote. If so, I think Serena was being nice.

Age matters A LOT in tennis.

Re: Serena: Hingis would be Top 10 for sure

Even an aged, injured, not the original Venus is still somewhere in the Top 40 playing so little tournament (and not winning anything but Lux the past 12 months), top 10 is far fetched for Martina with Errani and Wozniacki in it?

Wozniacki would kick Hingis' ass.

(so to speak, of course )

You surely no nothing about WTA. Hingis is in perfect form and Clijsters is an example of greatness regarding come backs. She was retired, she came back and won US Open.

But she's not returning to singles. Why then does this quote matter?

I'm not knocking her btw, if anyone has earned the right to be a bit shady on this point she has. I'm just saying that it makes sense to take her remarks with a grain of salt.

Serena just wants Hingis to come back so she can have another walking BYE in the draw

Re: Serena: Hingis would be Top 10 for sure

I remember Bjorn Borg trying a come back in the 80's a few years after his retirement. He gave up fast. It's hard to catch the train again. The train kept rolling while you were making a break. It rolls harder and faster than before.

Re: Serena: Hingis would be Top 10 for sure

She obviously would play well, but would she be able to play as well as she would like to? I doubt it. Top 20-30 perhaps but i don't think a great player as herself would be happy to that. Let her play doubles in peace!

Venus and Kim are two the greatest athletes women's tennis has ever seen.
Completely different.
