She'll be Back

AdvantagesGreat record, good ground shots and she is still only 20, much more to come

DisadvantagesLets the pressure affect her game, and loses to Davenport, Williams in the power game

Advantages

Disadvantages

"this player is one of the best female players i have seen around in a long time. she has won many titles in her now ending career, most notably wimbledon. she did go out of this tournament in the first round to a non-seeded player when she was seeded at number one to win it, but apart from that she has mostly lived up to expectations. i still think that she still has a few grand slam victories left in her though and i hope she obtains her as she deserves ..."

Spoilt Hingis

AdvantagesGreat technique and control

DisadvantagesHas trouble with power hitters

"Martina Hingis is losing her footing. She was suddenly introduced into the big screen just as Capriatti was years back. This time it was said that Hingis would stay in it as opposed to Capriatti. It looks like Hingis will stay in it but has things to work on. It looks like her fame has gotten to her as has her craving for more money. As a top tennis player it is obvious that she is already making hoards of money but insists on getting more. At the ..." Read review
