Hingis vs. Cho (Tokyo)
 
Hingis d. Cho: 6-0 6-0

Not a bad start. Never heard of her opponent but she's ranked 60 in the world. If Hingis had a better serve, I'd easily make a bet that she'd climb into the top 5 and eventually to #1. Her return game is that good.

What's Cho's first name, and what country does she play for?

Nice to see Martina stocking up on the carbs (bagels). :D

I have no idea what her full name is, but she's Korean. It's on Yahoo's tennis site.

Noelle 02-01-2006 12:29 AM

In the WTA there are four Korean players with the last name Cho. :lol: We're talking about Yoon-Jeong Cho.

Hingis meets Dechy in R2.

I hope Hingis can go all the way and meet Sharapova. I hope Sharapova can go all the way to meet Hingis, too.

She made it to the Quarters of the AO, and pushed the No.1 player (Clijsters turned No.1 the next week) to three competitive sets. Dementieva isn't held back by her serve, and it isn't as well placed as Hingis's. Players are not jumping all over it like people were predicting before she started this year. There has NOT been great advancement to the womens game since Hingis's time. Sure, some of the players can bash baseline-to-baseline a little harder, but is thats not a major advancement.

What more does she need to accomplish before this is not seen as such a detriment?

33 Minutes!

Hingis shows off ruthless streak

Martina Hingis backed up her claim that she is "improving every week" with a stunning 6-0 6-0 victory over Cho Yoon-jeong at the Pan Pacific Open.

Hingis, who returned to tennis last month after retiring in 2002, took just 33 minutes to seal a first-round win over her Korean opponent in Tokyo.

"It shows the potential is there and I'm improving every week," said Hingis.

The Swiss, a four-time winner of the event, was never troubled and dropped five points in a 14-minute first set.

The Swiss star made her return to Grand Slam tennis at the Australian Open last month and reached the quarter-finals of the singles as well as winning the mixed doubles.

"I probably exceeded my expectations in Australia and that confidence showed," she added.

The 25-year-old, who retired in 2002 after suffering a series of injury problems, will now take on French third seed Nathalie Dechy in the last 16.

Earlier, second seed Elena Dementieva claimed her first victory of 2006 with an unconvincing 2-6 6-1 7-5 second-round win over Katarina Srebotnik.

Dementieva suffered a shock first-round exit at the Australian Open.

While I like Natalie Dechy's game a lot (she took Davenport to 3 sets at last year's AO semifinal), she'll have to play very well to have a hope against Hingis. Martina's ability to think and adapt her game during a match is unrivalled in women's tennis.

that woul be an interesting match, Hingis against Sharapova

Court_Jester 02-01-2006 02:29 PM

Finesse vs Power.

My money's on finesse (Hingis) plus I hate the grunting. :p

superman1 02-01-2006 07:02 PM

There aren't many great returners in the women's game, so Hingis' serve should not keep her out of the top 10 or top 5. But I'm just saying that it would be MUCH easier for her if she had a bigger serve. She breaks serve so easily but she tends to get broken right back.

joesixtoe 02-01-2006 09:13 PM

hingis did look great at the AO, but against clijsters it looked like she just didn't have the power to do much. i feel maybe she either just needs more match time to get used to it, or get her feet moving more,,, well both,,, i mean she can't hit harder, or she can ruin her game...

opiate 02-01-2006 09:33 PM

Hingis def. (3)Dechy 4-6 7-5 6-2

Meets Kirilenko in the next round... HOORAAY. I hope Hingis wins again.

superman1 02-01-2006 11:13 PM

Great job Hingis! Hoping for a Sharapova matchup.

Yes, Dechy is a solid win.
I wasn't really that impressed with the love and love thrashing of Margaret Cho. I beat her by the same score and I'm not that good. I met her on the west coast club circuit in the early nineties. Pretty funny on a good night. Good timing. No defensive skills whatsoever.

Hingis def. Kirilenko 6-2 6-1
Heads up... Sharapova.

superman1 02-02-2006 10:33 PM

She's blowing people away. I think she'll beat Sharapova.
