Hingis vs Sharapova

Quote

Well it's a match everyone's been waiting for ever since Hingis announced her return to professional tennis. Even the players themselves admit to have been anticipating it. But in this battle between the old and the new who do you think will come out on top?

I think Sharapova will win, but I think it will be a very interesting match.

Hingis isn't quite up to the top level yet, Sharapova will win although I feel Hingis will test her. Quite like Hingis so I hope she wins.

I think that Hingis has a good chance. She's well knowledgeable of Sharapova's game as she's been watching her rise to the top of her game over the last few years. Sharapova hasn't had a great deal of experience against a player such as Hingis who uses her opponents power against her and has an unrivled knowledge of the game. She has amazing skill in reading another player. If Sharapova doesn't pounce on her and strangle any opportunity Hingis has to outsmart her she'll be in big trouble. Plus, Sharapova hasn't been known for her consistancy of late. It'll be a close and interesting game but I think Hingis may come out on top.

I don't think it is. Only UK coverage this week is of Zagreb (understandable due to the fact Tim and Andy were both entered to play) on Eurosport 2. Winter Olympics and Africa cup are sort of dominating the sports channels at the moment.

Damn!  There should be a tennis channel.  And all the Sky Sports channels should chance there names to Football Channels.

Too right! I was surfing some of the news channels teletext easlier this week looking for some results as I couldn't get to a computer and one of the channels under 'sports news' had nothing but Football. I mean I can understand the whole 'football is the most popular sport' arguement when it comes to the reporting in newspapers and such but at least they do report on the big stories in other sports and there's usually some tennis news most days, but to claim that the only news there is in sport is football is rubbish! And I agree about the tennis channel, why not if there's a Man u and a Chelsea Channel! There's live tennis on all the time around the world. Maybe we'd get some challangers coverage. Ooh, and doubles and juniors! And repeats of classic matches too. We can but dream...

Yeh to the juniors and doubles and repeats of classic matches!  That would be ace!  Even if it was a channel you'd have to pay loads extra for I'd still get it.

Sharapova will win... Hingis isn't on top form if you ask me. But that's logical, she's just back in.

I'd like Hingis to win, after all, she'll be the underdog.  Like them both though really.  dontknow

I don't like Sharapova as a player.. so i would definitly like Hingis to win.  goodjob Would be just what she needs to get the first grand slam of the year under her belt.  =D>
However i do think that Sharapova will win. Fitness will play a big role.. and i just think Hingis might not have what it takes to battle it out against someone who's been number 1 for a while now.  Think

Great match in prospect....

I think Sharapova will do it with her power shots, but it'll br a close run thing.
