Zitat des Tages von Martina Hingis:
I always give Lindsay so much credit for her tennis game, for her attitude, for her person, and because of how she deals with all the things. I don't think people give her enough credit for how well she's doing.
That's one of the reasons I moved to Florida. Of course, the main reason is the weather and the training. But there's more jealousy in Switzerland because it's so little and they don't have so many athletes.
I didn't have the same fitness or ability as the other girls, so I had to beat them with my mind.
I don't think it's a low point being in the finals of the French Open, three points away from the victory.
We had a poster of the Davis Cup in 1986. It was in Prague, the Czech Republic against Sweden, and we went to watch, so I got the poster. You couldn't get all the posters. You were lucky if you got one.
Honestly, I'm more into the computer, the Internet, and checking out scores or the news.
I grew up on the tennis court with lots of other kids. There were like 40 kids all afternoon and I was one of the youngest ones, so I always had to chase everybody to keep up.
I still speak Czech with my parents because I was born there.
I've lived for 10 years in Switzerland, so I speak German.
He is still my father. He is still a person I know I could trust and he would never do anything against me. Once you're at the top, there are not many people like that. People always want something from you.
I think the whole boycott thing was a bit too much. It's because we're accomplished so much in women's tennis in the last two, three years. We deserve something better.
Sometimes you want to make your own experiences.
Right now I like baseball, hockey and tennis players. And horseback riders.
Sometimes I wouldn't give an interview because I didn't have the time or something else was more important. So they come up with a story which I don't think is always true, but they have to sell papers.
I'm not saying I'm something special. I might play a little better tennis than other people, but it is because I was given the chance, and not many people are.
I was always at peace because of the way my mom treated me.
The game overall has gotten so much better, stronger, more physical parts to the game.
Now that I beat Lindsay I feel much better.
The first point is always to believe in it when you go on court and then you have the chances to win.
No, because I think I have a reason to believe in myself and I think I'm also pretty confident about who I am and what I'm doing and it might be because I'm still at the top too.
Any tournament you go to, you want to win it.
The older you get, the more you learn.
I have good anticipation, and good reaction to the the ball because I've played so many matches in my life.
I'm glad you're doing this story on us and not on the WNBA. We're so much prettier than all the other women in sports.
When I was 4 my mother got divorced and we were very close to each other. I always wanted to be with her. She took me everywhere. When she went for dinner with friends or when they had meetings at the tennis club, I was always there.
Well, maybe at home I don't have the best image.
The top players talk more now, and we have more meetings. We're just trying to get things better. But we still need somebody who could make a difference.
