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 French Open she wore a tight shirt that was long sleeved on the right side and short sleeved on the left side. She doesn't mind being the clothes model for addidas as long as she gets money for it, no matter if it is uncomfortable and hot. It is so tight all it can do is insulate her, keep the heat in. In a cold climate a shirt like that would be fair enough.
Maybe Hingis is trying to make her dream of being a model come true. The only place where she can model is on the tennis court. In and interview she said thatj when she was younger she wanted to be a model but as it turned out she didn't grow tall enough. I am sorry, but she isn't pretty enough either. She has to deal with the talent that she has been given.
Hingis is brilliant at placement and taking control when the player she is competing against is less powerfull than her or even a little more powerful than she is but as soon as the competition envolves someone as powerful as the Venus Williams, Hingis encounters problems. Venus's power just overwhelms Hingis. Capriatti just beat Hingis at the French Open and Capriatti is also a power hitter as is Davenport. Hingis has the skill but is hindered by her size. Hingis's coaches just have to find some way that Hingis can fight against those powershots, perhaps by taking some of the rhythme off the ball and positioning it to her advantage.
