only 1 unforced error in the third. that whole not making errors thing . . . i hope it catches on.
Fantastic. When you think about it, it's a match-up she should be able to win. She has amazing control of the ball and should be able to run Davenport around.
Martina has a decent road to the finals. Her quarterfinal match will be against either Myskina or Safina, both of whom she should be able to beat. Then probably Sharapova in the semis. I think Hingis when she's playing a clean match and isn't tired has the right kind of game to beat Sharapova.
Martina at practice on Sunday morning
An image of Martina practicing her serves on one of the practice courts at Indian Wells on Sunday morning. She played her match on center court later in the day.
Martina is gonna be this year's champion!
Its deja vu all over again for the Cerebral Assassin. Now lets see if Serena has the stones to step up, take off that size 22 skirt, and compete.
This wasn't that big of an upset was it? Despite the difference in their rankings, Davenport seems almost tailor made for Hingis. She doesn't move well, doesn't play long points well, and doesn't finish well in long matches.
Martina and Maria are only a match away from facing each other.
I can't wait.
I think it was a pretty huge upset. Davenport had won 8 of the last 11 matches & many of them weren't even close. I remember when Hingis got destroyed by Davenport at the '99 Chase Championships, she actually said to Lindsey, "I just can't beat you, you're too good."
I think both players were playing much better in '99. Davenport has now become a choker & is oft-injured(she was advised not to play Indian Wells due to a bulging disc in her back) Still she gave away this match, made so many unforced errors (after blowing Hingis away in the 2nd set)
Hingis picked a great time to come back, the players that forced her into retirement aren't playing well anymore(Williams), or are injured(Capriati) or both(Davenport)
Sharapova isn't in the same league as those four were a few years ago.
