Default This is when tennis was fun. Hingis-Martinez

I watched a couple of slugfest clips featuring Davenport, Capriati, Seles etc first, which made this one like eating parfait or mousse. Martinez is throwing all that heavy slice, topspin and angle at Hingis and as you can guess, all the tricks come out of the bag. A mature Martinez has the kind of game that can frustrate so many players. For Hingis, it was playtime too. The score isn't that close, but the points are compelling. There is no guessing what either player will do next. When did tactics die? The sport is so dreary now.
