This match will start shortly.
3-3, on serve.
5-3 Martina, she is up a break., first set.
Martina takes the first set, 6-3
1-0 Martina in the second set, on serve.
ESPN never fails to slap away wta matches when the atp is in action. The Hingis match, which has been much higher quality than the Berdych match, was supposed to be the featured match. However, espn only showed the first set of Hingis. I am so sick of espn's biased coverage. It is disgusting.
2-1 Martina, on serve, second set.
Although I like Baghdatis, the Hingis match is of higher quality and far more exciting. Espn should stick with their featured match of the day, Hingis vs. Safina.
I agree with u, Bags will beat Berdych hopefully.
Good variety from both Safina and Hingis. The depth of the wta is so impressive and this match is a typical example. The excitement of this match is so much higher than the Berdych match but I bet ESPN switches to the Berdych match anyway.
If it weren't for the unfortunate eye irritation to Baghdatis, we wouldn't be seeing Hingis right now.
How many times are you going to say that the WTA matches are of higher quality?
Martina breaks, up 4-2 in the second, looking pretty good for a semi-spot.
Well, as many times as I wish. You are like a complaining downstairs neighbor. I can keep making the noise, since I now know it bothers you, so it would be wise for you stifle it.
Safina gets the break back, 4-3 Martina, on serve.
What are you Archie Bunker? I'm not Edith so I don't know who you are telling to stifle.
That's true. The only thing that bothers me is that Safina's serve was called out when it was good and there have been shots from Hingis that were long but not called. The tournament stands to make a lot of money to have Hingis progress as far as possible in the tournament so the favorable line calls happen. Nothing new in the world of tennis. It's almost as bad as Ice Dancing.
That was some impressive play from Safina. This match is so much more exciting than the Berdych match.
If you say so I'm not watching either, but if you get rocks off saying how exciting the WTA match is so be it.
This Hingis/Safina match is incredibly exciting, my little downstairs neighbor. I would even say that it beats any of the ATP matches shown so far at the Pacific Life Open. Although Safina's grunts aren't as loud as Nadal's, they are really emphatic. The level of play and variety of shot has been terrific from Safina and Hingis.
Ok whatever it takes to get them off the court. The quicker they finish the sooner Roddick, Fed and Gasquet get on court.
Hingis defeats Safina, 6-3, 6-4, Safina has some game but Martina advances.
Alright finally. Now onto real tennis. Go ATP!
That was a terrific match, such great depth and shot selection and full of excitement. I doubt that Roddick's match will be at such a high level but I will be watching anyway. Roddick could learn a lot from Hingis and if he had the power of Safina off the backhand, he would be able to do more damage from that side.
To me, higher quality matches consist of more winners than errors. The ATP has more matches like this than the WTA.
Also, it seems to me that coverage focuses more on WTA matches in shared events in recent times. But this year and last, it's possible that the attention has focused to the men as there are more Americans there now.
That was a routine, straight set match dude. Did curling get your heart racing like a lab rat too?
If A-Rod had Safina's backhand he would be out of top 100.
If Safina had A-Rod's backhand it would be the most powerful shot WTA has ever seen. She would be winning every Slam without losing a set.
The Baghdatis match was a slaughter and far less exciting, like you.
That's dillusional of you.
Well, all the excitement of the Hingis match has me in the mood to play. I'll fast forward through the ATP matches later, no big deal.
Good one. I just don't find millions of unforced errors exciting. When I watch a tennis match, I prefer to see players actually WIN POINTS, rather than LOSE POINTS.
