I am missing all those threads where fans of Hingis were claiming that Hingis was/is a better player than Justine. Before the return of Hingis I read several times that only on clay a Justine with her A-game would be able to compete with a Hingis playing her A-game. Since the return of Hingis we saw that Justine is simply a better version of Hingis. She is a lot more athletic and powerful. It doesn't matter where they meet, Justine is always the favorite. It didn't surprise me one bit. I always was convinced that Justine was better than Hingis, eg. Justine serves 30 km per hour faster than Hingis.

I think if both girls went at it in each of their respective peaks, Juju would come out the victor more often. With that said I think the difference between them isn't that big. On any given day I could see Hingis beating Juju in straights. I look forward to watching them play, not sure who I'll be rooting for on this one.

I don't get why they're compared so often. :confused: They have very different games. Sure, they're both below average height for a tennis player and have both compensated with beautiful technique but their games beyond that are totally different.

there games are not remotely similar. Hingis a far more intelligent player, Justine has more power and flashier strokes.

the only reason people try to draw similarities is because Justine is a simila stature to Hingis taking on the big girls

I never got that either- they play so differently. The two-hander vs one hander?


Myskina and Chanda Rubin to me have always been the players that I compare with Hingis.

I hope they both get there, despite Justines extra power I think Hingis has a great chance on this surface! It could be a great match in any case!

It will all be determined by the service game.

Hingis is a very intelligent player but to say her game is far more intelligent than Justine^s is silly!
It isn't silly, it just is the plain truth. And JHH will never have the glance Martina has and will 4-ever have.

Martina has got to be a little irked that she now has the possiblity to face the 2 Belgians in 3/4 slams so far.

Either way...Marti will have a chance to win a comeback slam, or Justine completes HER grand slam. Sigh....why oh why :-(

Lol far more intelligent player. Than Hingis is on a lonely level cause to me Justine is also a véry intelligent player.

I always compared the two, cause they both have great technique, Hingis is better in this department yes, but I think this is also cause Justine is stronger, she can combine the two.
