Tennis Quote of the Day: Martina Hingis - Hands and Anticipation

"[Martina] Hingis had amazing hands and uncanny anticipation. It's a skill just like a forehand or backhand, and you can work on improving it . . . Hingis knew what shot she was going to hit by preparing as soon as the ball crossed the net. Her decisiveness made up for her lack of power. This is a great lesson for club players: Anticipate better and act quicker to see results."
