Looking at this made me sad
It may make you sad, too, to see a photo gallery of Martina Hingis's career. It made me sad on two accounts--1. that Hingis was twice forced out of competition, and 2. that she ascended during a time when I had stopped watching women's tennis. I do not really know what happened, but after decades of Goolagong, Evert and Navratilova and Graf, Seles and Sanchez-Vicario, I needed a break. It was probably Martina Hingis who drew me back in, but by the time I became a regular viewer again, she was completing her glory days. I watched her, anyway, and I still regret that I missed so many of her matches, though I have since seen many of the major ones.
