So here’s a piece of an IM exchange with my friend James late in Martina Hingis’ surprisingly competitive, just-concluded victory over 106th-seeded Pauline Parmentier:
me: hingis looks like hell
james: yeah injured im sure
me: you think?
james: def…hingis normally basically makes zero errors
james: so when shes hitting unforceds, its a sign that something is wrong
We’ll find out soon enough.
