I am a bit baffled by Martina's play at this moment. She was a very smart player years ago and had some very good wins.
Some said she took years off, well so did the Williams sisters and when they play and dont play well, their time off is not considered. Instead, people start the, "they are over and should stop playing tennis." Oh well, Martina gets a pass for taking 3 years off and the sister's don't. Funny thing is, Serena was able to come back and win the Aussie and was a floater. LOL.
I just don't know why Martini can't get back on track. I was looking forward to watching her play like she did years ago. She beat Venus a few times when Venus first came out. That was hard to watch but Venus and Serena were about power more so than stragedy, IMO. Then other players added power to their strategic styles and at the same time the sisters added strategy to their power games.
It's time for Martini to come back. I would love to see her take on the sister's and the Russians.
Hell I would love for Capriati to come back and take on those Russians. I still can't get over Capri giving the French crowd the finger. I loved it!
