Martina Hingis continued her dominance of Tammy Tanasugarn today in a breath-taking final culminating in the Number 1 spot. We caught up with Hingis shortly after
Martina, congratulations on your win and your ranking
Thank you, it feels great
You played so well today, in fact, you have played superbly in your last 2 tournaments
Thank you, but it bit over stated i think
Why is that?
Well, obviously the US open is my crowning glory so far, but I feel I played much better here
If I don't win another tournament in my career, I'll look back at both tournaments for very special reasons, the Open, because it is a grand slam and here because I felt on top of everything as far as my game goes
It has also given you the number 1 spot
Yes, I'm determined to break the hoodoo and win my next tournament and be the first number 1 player to win a tournament
You said last week, that Tammy deserved to be number 1 as she was the most consistent player out-there, how do you feel about that now?
Well, I'm number 1 now, with 2 titles, so I guess that makes me the most consistent now...If Tammy had won, she would be the number 1 and deservedly so
It is so tight between us and you can't forget the likes of Justine either
Martina, thank you and we will let you enjoy the spoils of both your victory and your ranking..any plans?
