    I think there is the same "Fear of Hingis" as there is "Fear of Federer" when a player encounters her. She has stepped right in, and her results have been way beyond what I predicted,

    This should go into "Match Results". You should know this by now.

    Boy you guys are snarky. Who cares that it's not in Match Results. It was on pg 2 and no one had bothered with it. Besides, day old tennis news is less Result than History.

    I don't think it is fear. Hingis played a different style of game (take the ball early, change spin, pace, angle that don't follow conventional wisedom) that will give most players on tour trouble. I always thought she can get to top 10 easy.

    I have watched Kiriliko play in person before. She likes to play against power. Very few if any can out-manuver Hingis on a tennis court without super power.

    why do day old matches, that are not televised anyway, need to be in match results? (other than it tweaks the same old whiners) a good percentage of the discussion about pro players is related to match results. using the spoiler tag is good enough.
