"Really wasn't expecting it. Mattie Cutler looks more like he potentially was expecting that feedback. And then she gets voted off which I don't think she was. Voted off in week. One bad I feel like that's a tough hand bit. She definitely wasn't very good at it and cheat if money didn't enjoy being not very good at it. That's some sums up. The challenge I've seen it with a lot of other people John McEnroe's jokes. When I play Music Live Music Guitar it ruins, good elbows at tennis. I in my mind I'm greater this because that's what I WANNA BE I. WanNa be great at everything that I. do just like I was at tennis when he wasn't even rubbish. Say to him.

He doesn't as into these. Comments. Give become dancing to the really bad ones, yeah! She still the youngest open Air Wimbledon champion. Is that likely to remain? The took him about Martina Hingis now not John McEnroe Is that likely to remain the case full the foreseeable future? Yes old coca Gulf. The is. There wasn't a pandemic around she's. Had to win it this year kickoff to I. Don't think that was impossible for coca golf to win a slam this year. I. Bet On it, but I think she was improving at such a rate at the end of last year. I think it's possible. and. She lost to the eventual champion in Australia this year and pushed her to three cents But, no I think all the trends going away from. Youngest ever records being broken the ones that are being broken oldest ever at the moment. I think they would have to be like. We were talking about with Boris Becker. There's going to have to be some massive. Switch in in tennis for these youngest ever records to be broken yet. Lottie DOD is the only. The only younger women champion, but that was that was in the nineteenth. Century! And somebody younger than twelve Windsor Genius Flom then. I want to be here to see it. Because just that's ridiculous. You've got to be a teenager at least making us feel bad. So. That's Martina Hingis the youngest ever Wimbledon champion in the era and Likely to. To. Hold that record for for a long time to come, it's. It's an unorthodox career. She had an. It's kind of difficult was going to ask you to. To to some per legacy or to sum up by both, remember her, but I think that's potentially almost impossible. Because as you say, she doesn't quite fit. Into a category, So said let's just remember her for her SAS. And leave it at that which leaves me only other than saying hello to Gerald a lovely lovely mascot cat. To us about where we're heading tomorrow, we are going to two thousand one tomorrow the first of two matches we're doing from two thousand and one over the next couple of shows and into the fourth round of the men's tournament. Pete, Sampras is the. Reigning champion the full time defending champion, and he plays Roach Ephedra in the fourth round, and that be the only ever meeting between those two greats. And it's not the nineties, but David still looks like he's about to explode with unanticipated election. So pumped. Can we watch it now. He. Can I mean again have some lunch, thanks, company and FIA Chitchat and thank you for listening and we'll see tomorrow..

"So descended for for a while. Definitely close and successful together she won she won several. Double slums with annacone covers well, didn't she's relationship obviously recovered from the rivalry? The matches comment I. My sense, a little bit was Hingis soil the attention that Kona Kai if a Golz. And a didn't like it and be kind of wanted to have her share and probably lights hanging out with corner cover for some of the attention That's how it came across. The time, and I think that that also was probably a distraction. From? I think she enjoyed the life, I think she enjoyed the city of the Razzmatazz went around all. And I'm not sure that helps her achieve as much as she could have done. David, you interviewed Martina Hingis back in January of twenty fourteen when she was inbetween. We're cooling phases two and three of her career, she she'd had her singles comeback. And we'll talk about that in a moment of bit, she was it was before she made her turn to the doubles. Cool on which she had great great success most notably with Sunday Mirror. And you covered a number of topics he started off by. Asking her about success she had such a young age and asking her why why? That was so special that people on on doing what she was doing at fifteen sixteen. Thinking mainly part of it is also okay. The game has gotten more physical it's. The technology is different but also because the girls they're not allowed to play as many tournaments which I totally disagree with this alleged ability rule because I think girls should be open a free roof at the age of sixteen. I was already two years on the tour. I mean I had some rules as well, but not as strict as they are. These days that the girls that are only free to play the full schedule from eighteen so I think you know they losing away two years of time and. It's hard to to pick it up when you're eighteen or twenty. When you need that experience and. So. That's why we see champions for older these days. Of course. The you retired for the first time at just twenty two. It seems extraordinary when a lot of players are starting to to make their name of that sort of age. Did you feel that you missed out at all by playing as young as young as you did now not at all, actually because I felt like I had a little bit after myself. Already at twenty two and I had still grapefruit. Scher bright future ahead of me and. I mean still of course there's years of tennis and I mean headed a little comeback in which I'm still very proud of and I don't know it's I think sometimes also the priorities change, and it just I played. Juniors already when I was like yeah, twelve and thirteen so I had that experience and I. It was a different time i. believe as well because you know playing. Against, Steffi Graf Rancho Sanchez at that time. who were like ten years older than me? They all started the young as well so I wasn't the only one at that time, but Yeah. They had long careers I had shorter one, but still you know the ten year career is not like. Only, one one hit wonder. You, wouldn't you? I totally fifteen years ago. I mean not not long after that. You were playing against Serena Williams. Who is still dominating the tennis circuit today? That is extraordinary, isn't it? it is definitely but. It also tells you know how. Great assistance. We're when when they played. You know like in two thousand one and two and they were. At their best so and now still it's amazing, but she's always been very smart about their schedule. She never played as many tournaments I mean they had a lot of breaks and. I mean injury here and there, but they were very smart about it and I think that's why she's played. Like half of the matches at that time that I've played with the devils and everything play mixed doubles so maybe the age of twenty five. When I had my comeback, she only played like half of the dementia. The tournaments that I did so. She still had like the five years ahead of me. So that's pretty interesting. Implication there is that she she possibly suffered from from a playing, and yet she is adamantly opposed to the age eligibility rule, which is in place to to prevent burnout if young players, so it's not necessarily a coherent view, but it is, it is an interesting one. I also think it's a bit of an excuse that she's giving herself and probably a bit of a diss of Venison Serena. It by comparison as if she signed, what if I had only played the match I applied. It's still being going today but look. She decided around sheduled with okay with management company with her mother, and as we say, she won the calendar year. Slam in doubles in ninety eight. She was playing singles and doubles all the time she played over ninety matches in one, thousand, nine, hundred and one I think she lost about six or eight matches in the whole year. And her success was just. Crystallized into this very short period of time, and I've often thought with other prodigies I was thinking about Wayne Rooney's career that he was never more the English football of that he was never more devastating than when he was seventeen years of age same with Michael. Owen and I'm not sure necessarily. Certain players have longevity in them. I don't know whether Hingis hand that in her mentally you talked about whether she whether it was grit, and now she made comebacks, but I just find it quite interesting that it's almost like she. She turned her life upside down. To what most people have most people have childhood, Fun and Games, and then get serious and become something she was. Immediately, and then started to wish she could ride horses and do fun things and went and did them at the age of twenty two and then got bored. On say I think and and that's when comeback starts into in two thousand and six and I covered that and for the first month, or so it was joyous. I remember her. Her Australian Open Comeback. She beat Venus of. Ever in the first round, who was seated and absolutely took her apart, and it was just rolling back the years, glorious tenants, but She was never as good as she was before and yes, she found it difficult. I think to leave the sport. And yet she also couldn't hack it anymore. So. She ended up leaving the sport three times. Yes she had three three separate retirements will. We'll talk about each of these just in a minute, but let's I hear from Mary Carillo reflecting on well, Martina Hingis his career generally, but first of all on that Wimbledon triumph in nineteen ninety-seven. Matter a quote in his research from Hingis saying she hated Gross. That obviously coming before she ended up winning the title, his Mary Reflecting on why Hanks's game worked on the grass. People think that you've got to the overpowering to win, Wimbledon..

"It blows my mind that she was doing something as high risk as horse writing I know. She absolutely loves horses and Equestrian. I know that but. Tennis, players don't do activities like that during my career because they can't invalidates the their insurance doesn't I mean I saw Is quite s to refer to them like this high-value commodities, tennis players, they are insured against major career-threatening injury, but it doesn't cover you for a believe. It doesn't usually cover for skiing I remember when Tim Henman retired. And he was asked, he was mostly came forward to about retirement. He says I can ski. Now haven't been able to ski for the Post. Fifteen years and Martina Hingis the most. Of the most high value. Commodities in the sport. Is just. Putting all at risk to get a moose writing. I think it tells you two things one. Is that she? It's an indication of her age that she just was having to. Faced with having to give things up. She felt she should be allowed to do somebody well, obviously very wealthy now. All these options and she's at an age where she wants to do this stuff and. Okay I'm going to do anyway and I think that that's where the case she didn't have. The burn out, and the real problems of a caveat implies like that but I think she was conflicted in as as there's so much life, there's so much out there. The Sandwich I wanted to do I'm just going to do it anyway. That was part of it. The other thing is she said in an interview. I watched this morning. I felt invincible. And I don't think she thought she could come off the whole because probably thinks she's an absolutely world class force rider as well and nothing's going wrong so far. So why would she think wrong now? Well, it did happen twice a year they. Yeah! It's one thing to think not the first time. Can you remember the key? Can you imagine the cool going into a rage and I've done it again. This time bad. So. Yeah, I mean undeniably one of the all-time great seasons and everybody's seeming given her age that that she will she will. Is it much of an overstatement to say that she will dominate tennis for for many years to come at this point? The Williams sisters are there on that. Certainly Venus is is is emerging. People are aware of them as she play, she played Venus. Williams in the US Open final, and that was Venus's I ever use open. It was a fairly one sided match and. I remember watching it There was an incredible amount of hype about Venus but. It was one of those where those that follow in the second year round, just thinking well. Yeah, but he is the best better, plaza certainly right now and I just did not expect the turnaround the followed and then. She, she remained a factor. Did did hangers but? I didn't expect her to lose her position of dominance the way she did. Yes, she won the Australian Open that followed as well but I. I really thought that was going to go on for many years, and it's. It's notable also that she was playing doubles and she she won the calendar year slam in doubles in one, thousand, nine, hundred as well so. You know maybe there was a kind of burnouts. Strikes me that it was. kind of combination of things I think one was as Lindsay Davenport said their. Players like the Williams sisters emerging and Davenport getting better and. Not exactly the game overtaking her, but plays slightly figuring her out slightly realizing how to harness what they had in their games to beat her. Also I think the. French Open final that we covered in a on gas relived against Steffi. Graf is really big turning point in English his career where she after that she became far less secure in the big matches. She still reached a lot of Grand Slam finals this ninety seven season, but she lost most of them, and I think that ninety nine French Open where she didn't convert her her lead against Steffi. Steffi Graf ended up. Having quite a big tall and people realize that there was a weakness that they could chip away at and eventually injuries I mean. She had all sorts of injuries on her ankles and I. Think hails were badly inflamed I. think that was the one that eventually took out of the game in two thousand and two, so there was a sort of numerous factors just. Converging in meaning that she gradually kind of fat away, and never never became the fully dominant force that people thought she would. Did you lack Grit David? It all come so easily to her. It seemed like she was playing tennis on a on a different plane to every every videos, she she'd perhaps never had to dig deep a certain other players had to to achieve their success, and it's all going swimmingly, and then a real challenge comes along, not just in the form of the Williams sisters that were that were others, as well means Devonport became a real real challenge de her others, but. It is most embodied by the Williams sisters that that shift and changing if the God and she didn't adapt, did she? She didn't dig. She didn't adopt. She didn't change she. She faded. And I know that's really hard. Take on it all but. When it got read when the going got really really tough, she she faded. Think she I do think she loved winning. as you would expect, but I don't think she could really handle it when she wasn't winning that much and to go away and have to reassess. Regroup and come back and show that kind of resilience. She did come back, but yeah I think it. At any? She was off the player when she was getting some losses. Because I think that that knocked self perception. And probably reduced. How effective she was I think that could sound like A. Harsh assessment but I do think it's exactly what happened. I was reading some quotes from. From her mother, Melanie Molotov who said. She does only what she has to get by. She's not lazy, but she only works as long as it's fun, and it's not hurting and Chris ever talked about. Where's the need insider to? Go back and prove that she's better than these players emerging. And Oversee Chris ever. Would would know about that because she she did have that need inside. She did reinvent her game to to get the rivalry against never over back on the back on level terms in the in the latter half of that career, so I think that's exactly what happened I think she was bouncing from tournament to tournament when she was sixteen seventeen. Not really thinking about it kind of kind of imagining that it might go on forever, and then the soon as there was a little bit of a roadblock. She maybe didn't quite have that determination that that was required. And she possibly underestimated the the Williams sisters when they were when they were first emerging onto the tour, and and frankly some of the the comments she made about the more hugely uncomfortable on Ami, not I I'd like to think that they were. Somewhat uncomfortable at the time and Cetinje as time has passed tickly now they feel. Incredibly uncomfortable and I'd like to think that she would. She would not stunned by a lot of them, but. With the emergence of the Williams sisters came A. Animal could. Confrontation I suppose between between Hindus and them Deny How did you perceive it at the time, David? How did you? Perceive her attitude towards the Williams sisters. I founded uncomfortable at the time, and I wasn't really sure why. I think now with the years that have passed a an understanding much more about unconscious racism. I feel a lot more understanding of and it wasn't Jay I'm not pointing fingers at Martina Hingis here. I think we were all or many of us were guilty of this. and. Kind of pitching these plans against each other grouping. Venus and Serena, Williams as the Williams sisters. The gate crashes. The people have come along from the outside and. I do feel really uncomfortable with that now..

"That keeps on giving? They I mean just relentlessly brilliant. Come on, hit us with Montaigne quite well. She took up. She defeated Monica, Seles six, two, six, one in eight become the youngest ever world number one and She said why should I be worried about the future right now? Almost everything is perfect. As she felt unbeatable, Hingis, said well I am. And An and there's also the famous one where around that time, just having this so-called rivalry with an iconic over, and it's the one you know what you think of your rivalry with her. And she said what rivalry I win all the matches. None of these statements off factually inaccurate. They it's. Is this a Swiss thing to do you know? Federal does this and as always done? This doesn't any he gets away with it more than. More I mean I didn't maybe Monte anxious to get away with at the time, but she. Reputation as being. An arrogant Brat, didn't she? But maybe maybe this is what they're teaching. The kids in Switzerland's. Of any sort of modesty of full smarter state it's just. This is just how I see it I. I mean my personal favorite I. Think is the fact that this this was all taking place when tiger woods was was breaking through and winning his first masters, and and she was having a similar kind of season and she was getting. I guess she was getting compared to him, and she said it's all the time tiger. Woods Tiger Woods. I'm better than he is I've been on top longer and I am younger. I mean again at the time. Though those statements are not factually inaccurate. They have aged while. She. She is indeed younger than torture. Seriously what did take away was done in ninety-seven. Match when away from the Grand Slam? Let's forget no, I mean tiger. Woods won the masters by twelve strokes and. Forty four million people watching golf, and there was the symbolic black man winning the masters, this kind of elitist placing golf. Yeah, but he he older matte. All all of that is insignificant, compared to the fact that he was. Well I mean. In one thousand, nine, hundred seven. Maybe hinges did win more but. Yeah I mean tiger. Woods was revolutionizing the sport and hanging. Is I'm just better. than. The. which is less possible to objectively? That one but I mean. Tiger Woods obviously went onto, have the sustained success and the consistency and. Martina Hingis didn't and I. Wonder If if I'm not sure how go F- literate. You were at the time David Bit. If he'd been, he'd been asked at the time, he's going to have the most sustained career out to the to what you might have thought we'll see much given. It's difficult to say because I. Do I remember what in that Masters Woods? One and it was. People don't win. Major Championships by twelve shots certainly. When they're just starting, I it just doesn't happen. And he would, he was leaving fields behind the years, although that particular essential memory went to the open and didn't didn't fare very well that particularly. But anyway. What would have thought like? I thought Martina Hingis would dominate the sport for years to come there was she was so young to be sixteen seventeen, already playing at that level, and just frankly taking the mick out of opponent, she was making opponents. Look silly. She was that good. The the idea, she wouldn't win Wimbledon again after ninety-seven would have seemed absolutely ridiculous to me at least, and that's why I never really know. How to talk about Martina, Hingis and away as well. I think she an interesting case. He's kind of a little bit of an island because you wouldn't call her. Probably a cautionary tale, because she didn't to go off the rials or have the struggles that other young talents had and yet she didn't have this sustained career, either. She sort of she sort of sits in her own little place you know, and and she's also got these three distinct phases of her career when she had a couple of comebacks, but I think when you go back to this area that we're talking about late nineties early noughties. She was just this confluence of talent, aptitude and achievement, and she stood out for all of those reasons. and. She was a crazy crazy perfectionist wasn't sharing in the final. We've just shit that Wimbledon. One thousand nine hundred, in fact, all of the the Multi Martina Hingis much is that we've we've relived she. She does a petulant racket bounce at. What is essentially a forced error because she's annoyed that she didn't make it and produce a perfect winner from an impossible position, she is so good at tennis and so aware of how good she it tennis. Anything below perfection seems to disgust her. Which is amazing here she does give the most wonderful reactions that have howling time to even just raises of eyebrows and just sort of. Can we play another sport now? Winning this one so easily you're right, and and actually to me watching. It didn't advertise may I loved just loved watching at the time her ability particularly with backhand. Just put it on any part of the core that she so chose it was just she was easy. For what a skill to I mean I don't even I never even thought that about federal the. That I thought. This sports too easy for him. He had incredible skill set, but AENGUS was the nonchalance would which he would do it all and it wound people up I mean she was? She was almost kind of mocking opponents with with how easily she was based in them. She was the top seed at Wimbledon that year as Matt said having taken over the the number, one spot in March of ninety-seven Monica, Seles was the second seat, cheered lost in the third round to sandrine, tested and Yana Nevada was the third seed, and of course. The final was between Hingis and Nevada. Can you remember David first and third seeds but of Nevada having? reached. A Wimbledon final before with the fall greater experience, I think she was twenty seven. At that time he was the favorite going in wh-what odds with bud. Collins told us that they each had. I mean he would have been a comfortable favors. She was the best player in the world by FAW and just making mincemeat out of the role. People hadn't forgotten Novotna's struggle. She was the sentimental favorite. I mean people wanted Novotna to win no question about it and when she wins the first set six two. It really does look on because he has been out of sorts in that first set. But. She just controls things if she's playing well, even though Novotna went up a break in the third set. I didn't see coming radio I. Remember watching the match and I we expected. Hingis to just decode even grass court problems that Nevada Post. Because Higgins had such poise balanced time, she had time on every shot. It all seems so straightforward to. It's kind of composure. When behind to know that her game will eventually..

"So I it's in a great Steffi Graf that she did manage the colder at exactly the right time and she's She's cultivated a potential major league baseball player Jordan. Girls Is is quite a baseball plan. Not Not sure. Cultivated was the right the right verb their niece for child rearing night. We know it's all right. Final Word About Martina. Hingis as well as I said we`ll. We'll go deep into her career in the show that we do June Wimbledon. But we can't finish this without a word from Mary. Carillo who covered his career throughout. Let's see what she thought of her really enjoyed watching her. The Tiger as Nick Bollettieri Ritz. They in you'll I and that kid was such a she was. She had so much variety and she knew just went to use it and she wasn't she was pretty slight compared. That's what ended up happening by the way to my mind when I keep talking about the mental strength of the strength of the Great Standing became. The game became very physical. And he I think The blunt force trauma of so many players who were able to hit her is what got her way but back then when she was just a kid and she had she was so clever and she managed the courts so well there was no real place to attacker because she knew how to make the most of her strokes in her and her mind. I made her. She had a beautiful mind for the game. I loved watching has played. It didn't surprise me being the one that got away for her obviously is against cross that the French and ninety nine and that was kind of remarkable to see her not figure out a way to win that one. And what's interesting about that one okay at sixteen? At Wimbledon Chesney have a lot of pressure and she wins herself. The US Open. She says what she can do in Australia but the French that she never won the French. I mean which is the Sur Again. This service she grew up on and win grop feature and says. I'll never play this again by grigory new where that was her lineup but I still thought like well he gets is going to win to win a French and she didn't she didn't. I think Mary says what we were. All thinking the Steffi Graf said it to face in front of seventeen thousand people. You'll win one of these. And then she didn't Didn't win another slam. Which is and I know that. The narrative is in and Mary eluded to that that that the power game came along and it squeezed multi hangers out in the dumb imports of cools. Most most notably the Williams sisters. But actually she is she punched away through Steffi Graf. Who Okay. She wasn't the Williams sisters but she was power player. That was she was in the end as you say. She injected started injecting more pace on the ball in the second set Steffi Graf found a way to to make her a bull striking her power play. Tell in that much so I think it's a sort of slightly reductive narrative to say that sort of Martina Hingis game just kind of faded into into sort of feebleness with the wave of power tennis. I mean obviously that is true to a certain degree but she was doing against big hitters as well. She she Peak she was and of course the year before. This isn't talked about enough the year before the French. When she lost I think in the semi's she was going for the four slams in erode. She was going for the slam. The whatever we call it what do we call it. The the Jovic slam the Serena's so we are Martina Hingis will have a full show on her June Wimbledon Steffi Graf. We've had two wonderful conversations about her and Tomorrow we'll be talking about Andre Agassi as he tried to complete the career Grand Slam up against Andrei Medvedev that incredible year.

"She went on from there all Ankara and still broke in that second set and was serving for the match was six four five full. She says the man and she got fifteen. Love three points away yes. She kept having these sort of crises. And you're thinking what it's over. She's lost her. She's kind of lost her mind but then she would recover herself which actually made it all the more extraordinary that she didn't go on to win this match because she seemed to get over the emotional problems that she was having an recover her tennis. And then something else would happen. but I think also graphs reaction to that whole incident at the start of the second set is interesting because she did not simply raise her game. He started punching holes a lot more holes in defenses and I think she said off towards that was the moment I knew. She was so fixated on this one point. I knew that she wasn't mentally seeing the big picture and focused and that was one of the moments where I knew I had. I knew I had back into the match. She she up to power noticeably in that period from five four down and she she ended up reeling. Three games in a row off to win that set and then when the next one. That's four games in a row and then there was that massive toilet break that Hingis took down in in the third set. She goes off the court. For what seven minutes? And she comes back with a completely new hairstyle to boos and whistles from the French crowd. It was like stalls in there is she. She emerged from the looking like from person tonight. I'm going to have her aim like she needed to be different. After a game if the The third set unfortunately the just like on stars in the rise oh broadcast cutout the actual period of transformation So we were unable to see how how growth is dealing with that period. The time she came back I looked like was really composed about it. And I'm thinking lemon AC. I wouldn't be that'd be losing over this. But maybe maybe she was while it was happening as she came back with her hair and a completely different style. New scrunchy Utah at completely new outfits. She looked like she'd had a shower. She looked really fresh and then She's she's booed and whistled back onto the. She's taking her sweet time. It's not a it's not a brisk walk. It's more of a sort of lawler up but to the chair. And then she she has to to go and serve and instead of making her way swiftly to the service line she stops halfway to to put some clips in our hair. Almost as much as you know the end of the match. It was very clear how how distressing it was for the crowder against her. And this mcenery comments this at the time and she's doing the clips is she says he says it's like back if there's if there's anybody left in the ground that hasn't turned against to yet she's trying to make sure she turns them against her as well. It seemed at the time that she didn't if to thirds but later it seemed that were given and she gave it was pretty hard paste tennis. She then played. Grass was a runaway train. She did have one bright back but really graph just stick celebrated away from that point and Hingis was was really erotic. She started missing. She was step slow to every ball but the drama was Novi it when they got to match point five two for Graf Hingis serving match points down. She throws in an underarm serve almost for night. Great the job says it was Michael. Chang would have been proud of that. I mean that Zogheb even better than his vasan massively under spun underarm serve that just went sideways when it bounced and and one of the point and the crowd just could not handle in fact when she hit the serve while the rally was going on they started building and whistling and then intensified when she won the point because they felt like she was just trawling Steffi Graf. They thought she's disrespecting this great champion. We saw now reaction from graph at that point things. Carry on there. There's another matchpoint. There's another saved a match. Point has a chance then she guys match point down again and then she hits another drums which she she didn't win. The points in and booing starts again. Hingis goes in has been out with the umpire. I think about a line coal and then Graf lost it in graph comes to the Empire's chair and says. Can we just play tennis up? A think will hingis approach. The umpire about was the fact the as she was going to hit the serve they still booing and jeering oversea. The crab runs whether she was going to serve again and she did but I think king is felt that. She thought that I shouldn't have counted because I mean it was. It was rule casse at the moment. She hit that serve. Yeah I as they were kind of doing Already before she served and then she served and underarm of which was pictures of really bad one was out and then she had the confrontation with umpire. She was icon. He will bring me. She climbed into my breath. Well that was happening. And and that's when Graf kind I have words with Inga's and just say can we play a and this is at match point next point. She's one of the mental. So I mean. I don't think I've ever seen that before where a player loses a temper with an opponent and then the next point. She's celebrating having won her twenty second that her final Grand Slam tournaments career so she erupts in celebrations Hingis suddenly the emotion of it all overwhelmed her and the the intense and she starts to cry and she just puts her bag on a shelter and walks off in a health as if she's not going to take any part in the presentation you can you can have your French Open title Steffi you can you can lump it all of you. I'm off and she was just stomps off the court and the next thing they go for a break and Steffi's all happy and they setting up the massive podium. That's now replaced the trophy ceremony in the crowd which is and then after the cash will break Martina. Hingis comes back out onto the court with her mother. Her mother Melanie Molitor. Who's also head coach? Who has her arm around her? And she's almost carrying around to the Colt who whilst Chingiz salting and looking as if she can't really take this this whole situation they then have the presentation to Steffi Graf. I is the champion which is a funny look to us now. Isn't it because that doesn't happen these days? It's always the runner up first. And then the champion but it that way around and then. Hingis just still. Can't bring yourself to be magnanimous about any of it. She's just she's just sort of every everything that happens is greeted graphs graphs. Says you know you're going to win. One of these one day she gives us sort of whatever OECD something that Steffi Growth Christopher Murray gorilla that. We're going to hear from the that they didn't they? Were all saying you're going to win one of these. I think Steph. She said don't worry about it. We'll the cameron's a great job at this point. Is that both in short. Steffi sort of slightly obscuring crippled face if Martina Hingis and she just does this. I this this not quite an Iro but just enough if a face when when Steffi Graf says that when when Steffi's given the microphone she goes to to try and handed over to to Hingis to speak first and Hingis doesn't even verbally reply..
How Did the Ancient Land Blob Called Gondwana Become Today's Southern Continents?
"Lauren Bogle bomb here sometimes. Good Science Science can happen just by looking at a map of the world and letting your mind wander for instance observe how Africa and South America seemed to have been very recently cuddled together even though there are currently a couple of thousand miles of ocean between them similarly Madagascar fits perfectly into a little nick in the eastern edge of Africa and the Middle East seems seems to be pulling away from the top of Africa like a corner being pulled off of a hot cookie with a reasonably good representation of the shape and arrangement of the world's continents in front of them. Anyone could easily assess the earth's land masses have definitely been speaking around the name for the southern landmass that once was is Gondwanaland and also known as Gondwana but it wasn't just the shape of the continents that clued researchers into its former existence. They've also looked at similarities. Among plants and animals that live across the modern separate continents from those clues. Gondwana was an idea long before anybody figured out how or why. It worked the secret of course being plate. tectonics and idea that didn't really start gaining steam. Until the mid twentieth century but a nineteenth century Austrian geologist named Edward Seuss put a name to the concept of the supercontinent in his book. The face of the earth the first volume of which was published in eighteen eighty. Three SEUSS didn't come up with many completely novel ideas ideas. But he did a great job of synthesizing. A bunch of the research of the day to conclude that the southern continents and landmasses we now know as South America Africa Arabia India via Sri Lanka and Madagascar had at one point in time been connected because one well just look at them and two. They contained the same rocks and the same fossil's from an extinct feathery leafed tree called gloss of terrace Austria and in Arctic. Oh would be added theory. Thirty years later Gondwana on what was named for a densely forested region of central India where the first fossil evidence of the supercontinent was found in the nineteenth century. WanNa is a word for forest in Sanskrit and the guns are tribe that European explorers. I found living in the region. Even though we now know a lot about the mechanism by which Gondwana China was formed. It's extremely complicated and still being investigated. There's at least one. Peer Reviewed Scientific Journal devoted entirely to the study of the supercontinent. It's it's called appropriately Gondwana research however. There are a few things that we're pretty certain of I got Wada wasn't built in a day. The the making of Gondwana was a long process. Most likely through three major mountain building events driven by the movement of Earth's tectonic plates we spoke spoke via email with Joseph Merit professor in the Department of Geological Sciences. At the University of Florida he explained during the interval from about six hundred fifty to five hundred in fifty million years ago. Various pieces of Africa and South America collided along an ancient mountain chain called the Brazilian belt slightly older but overlapping with the Brazilian. Oh seven seven hundred and fifty to six hundred and fifty million years. AGO is the east African Oregon or Mozambique Belt that resulted from the collision between East Africa and Madagascar India Tree Lanka and parts of East Antarctica. The final collision was along the Kouanga Oregon between all those assembled pieces and the rest of Antarctica and Australia between five five hundred eighty and five hundred and thirty million years ago so it was a couple hundred million years of extremely slow continental car wrecks the created this Beta Ada version of Gondwana. But it wasn't done yet later about three hundred million years ago other landmasses join forces with it to form the giant ball of land. We now no no as Panja. But one continent rule them all couldn't last and sometime between two hundred eighty and two hundred million years ago. Hingis started started disintegrating as magma began pushing up from beneath the mega supercontinent creating rifts in the land that would later become seafloor as Penn.. Jia cracked the top part was pushed to the north creating the continent Laura Asia and Gondwana headed south back when Gondwana was just a baby supercontinent between five hundred and fifty and four hundred eighty five million years ago it hosted some of the very first complex life forms like trial abides bracket pods but since it continued to exist I didn't the drastic period lots of plant and animal. Evolution went down there merit said Gondwana contains evidence for evolutionary changes in the very first complex complex animals. The very first fish amphibians and reptiles the most famous fossils are the gun doina flora such as the loss of terrace fern a freshwater reptile called. Messo Soroush Soroush in a land. Reptile called Lyster Soroush Gondwana existed as a single landmass for more than three hundred million years because of its humongous assize by covered an area of one hundred billion square kilometers or about thirty nine billion square miles and because the continents moved a lot during that time Gondwana experienced many different climates said during the Cambridge. When Gondwana I formed the earth and Gondwana were in a greenhouse state in the late order vision? Four four hundred fifty million years ago gun was moving over. The South Pole and the climate was very cold. Gondwana continued to move through variety of latitudes and depending on where you are located hated. The climate might have been quite warm or more temperate. The continent was so large. That one part of Gondwana might be located at the quarter while another might be located at the poll. It's true it would have been cool to see Gondwana in its prime and although you won't personally get to see its victorious return. That doesn't mean that it's not possible. Possible the continents are always moving and scientists have a lot of ideas about what our next supercontinent is going to look like.
Jonathan Van Ness's 'Gay Of Thrones' Web Show Is Back
"Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. You've certainly heard of game of thrones the HBO series that is now in its eighth and final season. But what about gay of thrones gave thrones as a funny or die web series? That's been recapping game of thrones episodes ever since season three. The show is hosted by Jonathan van Ness. You might know him as the hairstylist and grooming expert on the Netflix show queer eye each week, a different guests like Gabrielle union or on a affairs sits down and Jonathan stylus chair for a pretend haircut and the to get talking about that weekend's episode of game of thrones with countless jokes and pop culture. References. Here's a clip from today's episode with actor and comedian Camille Johnny about a pivotal game of thrones scene between sir c and Tyrian. Lancaster? I bet you but evil no volume Carol Brady goes no dice. She's like, don't you tear us maternal instinct's against me. I am just as indicative and unreasonable as Amen that was recorded just yesterday, the funny or die studios in Hollywood where I visited a chat with Jonathan van Ness and Aaron Gibson the series creator and director, she's like don't you dare us. My maternal instinct's against me, I has been dictated and unreasonable as any man. She's like, don't you tear us nine maternal instinct's against me. I am just as reasonable. And I am just as and unreasonable as any man. When I sat down with Erin Gibson, and Jonathan van Ness after the shoot I ask van as how making time for gay of thrones works logistically with all his commitments for queer eye season. Seven shows the last season, I was in Atlanta shooting queer eye. So I would shoot queer eye Tuesday through Friday and get on a plane, and then come here do gave thrones get back on the plane, go back to Atlanta. And now this time I have said spoke to New York, and so Sunday mornings, I get up and I pop on a plane, and I get here, and then I come to show with everyone. And then I go home, and well, then I pitch all my jokes before everyone else gets pitch their jokes, which is really nice to me. So everyone's could stay up till midnight. And I tap out at night. And I'm like, oh my God. I'm so tired, which is the joke. But really I am. It's a lot like. We need you to be amazing on camera dies need to go to bed. What is it? Like when you guys are watching it is it like being Theodore everybody's talking about to the screen like, there's just constant banter. You making knows what does it sound like this new method where we're doing like one of our people will yell out the number. So it's like a scene one seemed to because we're all kind of writing while we're watching it. So there is some healing of the screen usually from me, but we turn the lights off we have snacks. And we right. We really are. There's a lot of typing are other tradition is that we always have ten degrees. We've had ten degrees every single year and shocked. Not sick of it. There are so many recaps of game of thrones. And what's amazing to me is how quick and how thorough they are? And when you're thinking about how you were going to both recap and episode and then do something. That's funny. How do you figure out? What is I? Because is it important that you get the story. Right. I and then at the jokes are what order they come in. I think it's always about serving the purpose of how Jonathan has regurgitated this show. So in my mind is always funny. I, but I do want this to be a cheat sheet for people who maybe don't watch game of thrones. And maybe one not feel like they're an outcast in society at work. So they do know what's going on. But first and foremost, it's about making this show funny, and allowing Jonathan to shine his very specific and hilarious light on a show. That is the most McCall thing on TV. The other thing that you guys seem to be really intentional about is making sure that you have the most latest pop culture references possible. So. So you just did an episode where you have a mayor Pete reference. There's a reference to the Boeing seven thirty seven max is that always like what happened that day that we can incorporate how do you think about what is and is not funny or worth including well, I have to say, you know, in in the episode from last week. It was all about Martina Hingis. This battle had more downs than Martinez. Hang stories his career. So I things are going great. She wins drilling open in ninety seven. Well, then she screws up at the French Open by serving underhanded, stuffy graph and gets booed off the court. But then she goes on to the lay at Wimbledon. Unfortunately, then she just positive for snow, which she denies. Let's what they love about. Our writing room is like it's really we are going to we're going to get an each we're going to go big. We're going to go niche gonna go. Now, we're gonna go eighty six we're going to go ninety four you don't know. Also, we might have a revolutionary war thing. Like, you just don't know what you're going to get last night we joke because we couldn't remember if we'd already made it, and it was a nodding hill reference, and it was. I'm just a dragon Queen standing in front of a murderous asking her to surrender. So how does the Martina Hingis reference come in? Because it goes on for like, two minutes. It's all of Martinez, tennis Greer the ups and downs. I forgot that she got popped for drug offence. There is a lot of research and detail in your Martina hanging story, we'll happen. There was as we air was trying to figure out a great analogy for something that has a lot of ups and downs. And we wanted to get through the battle scenes quickly because it was just a lot of carnage is a lot current and all the ideas that were coming up for something to had a lot of ups and downs. Just weren't feeling quite on the gay of thrones brand win all of a sudden Martina h'angus's underhand serve to Steffi Graf in the ninety nine French Open just leaped into my head. And I was like it's Martina Hingis tennis career, which when anything sounds like oh my God. It's Martinez tennis career
News in Brief 22 April 2019
"This is the news in brief from the United Nations, the UN special Representative Libya and head of the UN mission in the country. Well, Gus on salami is continuing his efforts to try and deescalate military action in and around the capital Tripoli. The commander of the self-styled Libyan national army began an offensive to try and take the Libyan capital from forces backing the UN recognized government more than two weeks ago. Here's UN spokespersons to Fantasia wreak. We've correspondents in New York on Monday. Mr. Salam as progress he met with Tunisian foreign minister Cammie Gina we in Tunis with whom he discussed developments related to the clashes in southern Tripoli both asserted that the UN facilitated political process is the ideal in only way to solve the Libyan crisis. According to the UN office, coordinating humanitarian affairs, ocher thousands of civilians refugees and migrants during trapped in conflict -ffected areas. Unable to flee either because of fighting with attention and a statement released on Monday, ocher said that medical teams were working relentlessly to evacuate and. Care for people wounded in the conflict through the Tripoli flash. Appeal the humanitarian communities urgently called for ten point two million dollars to continue providing lifesaving relief, adding that humanitarian needs in Libya rapidly, increasing while funding levels remain, low traditional knowledge is at the core of indigenous identity culture and heritage the chair of the UN permanent forum on indigenous issues said at the annual launch event on Monday stressing that it must be protected and nor GAM who is a member of Finland Sami parliament and head of these semi councils human rights unit said the forum offers an opportunity to share innovations and practices developed an indigenous communities over centuries and millennia indigenous peoples live in some ninety countries represent five thousand different cultures and speak an overwhelming majority of the world's estimated six thousand seven hundred languages and while they make up less than six percent of the global population. Indigenous people account for fifteen percent of the world's poorest. According to the forum, MS no GAM encouraged, all Member States to. Keep children connected to their indigenous culture and community stressing that these languages enabled us to protect our traditional knowledge. Three top United Nations officials will visit Bangladesh late this week to highlight the need for supporting the humanitarian needs of almost a million ranger refugees. Now living in the country. The UN announced the visit of High Commissioner for refugees or UNHCR Filippo Grandi, the direct to Germany of the migration agency IOM Antonio Vitorino and the UN relief chief Mark Lowcock head of ocher. In a statement released on Monday in the capital Dakar, the delegation will hold talks with senior government officials, and then travelled to Cox's Bazar to meet refugees assess preparations under way ahead of the monsoon season. And visit UN support projects. The aim of visit to highlight the need to continue strong international support while solutions can be found for the safe dignified return of Hingis to me and more.

Empty lands in Myanmar await Rohingya return: UNDP director
"This is an academy with you and news since late August two thousand seventeen more than seven hundred and twenty-five thousand mainly Muslim Ruina have left racking state across the border into southern Bangladesh fling, widespread and systematic ethnic violence, but they left behind it home a vest land not being cultivated with an estimated seventy percent reduction in agriculture production. Just in Mondo district alone said the UN development programs regional director for Asia indices, Fiqh, how young shoe in a recent interview with you and use U N D P and UN refugee agency UNHCR are working inside me. And mar developing community projects that aim to improve livelihoods in Bill trust, Mr. shoe sat down with leading one of our Chinese service, noting that many of the communities from different ethnic or religious backgrounds now, depending on humanitarian assistance used to leave side-by-side hinder pollution in. That is a Muslim minority who predominantly live in northern part of kind. I think they have faced the structural discrimination over many years, and that has resulted in the prosecution of this population and violation of their rights for quite some time. Who I there are many reasons one is the competition for resources in that part of the country because we're kind state is warm. The post the second the poster state ING, mama. So the fact is that both the Muslim population. Right. The Rangers and the Buddhist population the predominantly rookie. They post living report, conditions and avert in many villages of both communities and the conditions are report. So there's also fear of losing the homeland to speak by the time people because they see Hingis as some people from outside their country, which is not the case, you have just come. Included a visit to the northern part of the rock kind state, which is the epicenter of the violence since August last year. So what did you see there to the Mondo district, and what struck you most is the kind of emptiness whereas learned in large trucks of learned not being used for cultivation and the talk to local the mistreatment or he told me that district used to her eight hundred thousand people five hundred son have left, so they have three hundred thousand people left of which two hundred thousand belong to the Muslim community, the Rangers, and the one hundred thousand people not belong to reckons and other minority groups so vast amount of land is not being used and I estimated after talking to a few officials agricultural production is down seventy to seventy five percent, which translates into two hundred three hundred thousand tonnes of ROY. Not being produced every rice planting season. So this is what struck very quickly, and the tells me that the community that used to coexist together in this location as the kind of could dependence between them has now been broken, but went community depended on the other community, you know, for survivor and the for relative prosperity, I visited many communities in this trip communities used to live side-by-side mixed the communities now, most of the the Muslim comments have left. Some still remain and against trucks, you quite a lot because they used to live in peace in hominy Ideo talk to any of the remaining Rohingya community, UCLA ATar definitely made them talk to them. And they certainly know talk about the pastor where the cou- existed was the rain puts the communities in harmony peace the kind they typically tended to. Specialize in activties setup stream such as you know, treating the Muslim communities typically, right? They are known to be good farmers fishermen and so forth. Right. So the used the to actually lease the land that the kinds use okay for production. Whereas in the leukotrienes will Cain economically by letting the Muslim community using their land. And so since most of the Muslim communities have left, and you have a situation where a large number of fields just in abandoned at this time. Right. So they see the consequences that or communities could be self sufficient and didn't require any external support now have to rely on food aid and military assistance. So that's why I think it is in everybody's interest for refugees to return to me, but in conditions of on voluntary safe and dignified written, but. In everybody's interest for them to
How to control robots with brainwaves and hand gestures
"Getting robots to do things isn't easy. Usually scientists have to either explicitly program them or get them to understand how humans commu. Indicate via language. But what if we could control robots more intuitively, using just hand gestures and brainwaves a new system spearheaded by researchers from MIT computer science and artificial intelligence laboratory otherwise known as c. sale aims to do exactly that allowing users to instantly correct robot mistakes with nothing more than brain signals. And the flick of a finger building off the teams. Past work focused on simple binary choice activities. The new work expands the scope to multiple choice tasks, opening up new possibilities for how human workers could manage teams of robots by monitoring brain activity. The system can detect in real time if the person notices an error as a robot does a task using an interface that measures muscle activity. The person can then make Hingis Gers to scroll through and select the correct option for. Four said robot to execute the team, demonstrated the system on a task in which a robot moves a power drill to one of three possible targets on the body of a mock plane in portly. They showed that the system works on people. It's never seen before, meaning that we're gonna Zeh shins could deploy it in real world settings without needing to train it on users. This work combining EEG an EM feedback, Nabil's natural human robot interactions for a broader set of applications than we've ever seen before. Meanwhile, researchers have harnessed the power of brain signals called error related potentials, which they have found to naturally occur. When people notice mistakes. If there's an e r p the system stops. So the user can correct it. If not, it simply carries on what's great about this approach is that there's no need to train users to think in a prescribed way. The machine adapts to you and not the other way around for the project team used Baxter a humanoid robot from rethink robotics with human supervision. The robot went from choosing the correct target seventy percent of the time to more than ninety seven percent of the time. The team says that they could imagine the system one day being useful for the elderly or workers with language disorders or even limited mobility approaches like this show that it's very much possible to develop robotic systems that are a more natural and intuitive extension.
3D Printed Cylinders Tower Over Mars Surface in Latest Design
"Nasr's three d. printed habitat challenge has seen several companies now competing for a high honor to design the first habitats for humans on the moon. And even Moore's using three d. printing, these competitors have proven their ability to create structures such as cones cylinders and beams. The most recent phase of the competition takes things to a new level by asking the teams to present their ideas for entire structures. Lot of the ideas offered thus far have been low dome like structure, some partially buried in the ground, but a space factory. The second place winner of the most recent competition round has something a little bit different in mind. Marsha short for Mars habitat features, tall, Celinda, Rickel structures that resemble along gated eggs, optimized to Hindle internal atmospheric pressure and structural stresses. They're quite different from earth dwellings which are designed to handle mostly gravity and wind. The ground level of each Marsha structure has garage that contains external systems and exploration activities with a supporting wet lab above that is the main hub with thirty four square meters of joint dry lab and kitchen. The third level has individual cabins sanitation pod and a hydroponic garden. The fourth level is a recreation and exercise area and features a bright water-filled skylight. Each building is made from two shells with the space between them acting as a light. Well, the reason so much work is being put into developing methods and materials for construction on Mars is that it isn't realistic at all to consider bringing materials from earth. So everything must be fabricated from the materials readily available on the red planet or the moon to that. End space factory is developing assault fiber, reinforced p. l. a. with the basaltic stranded from Moore's rocks and the p. l. a. harvested and processed from plants grown on Mars. Whenever humans do get to the point at which colonizing Mars is an imminent possibility. NASA plans to send robots ahead to the planet together materials and create three d printed habitats so that they're ready for the people when they arrive. The structures may look alien from the outside, but on the inside they appear comfortable and livable. The fact that they're built vertically means that there's no need for a robot to travel across an unknown surface to build them a stationary Rover with a telescoping arm, builds the structures in its place. NASA has worded AI space factory almost twenty one thousand dollars to further develop their project. And of course I'll keep you updated here on your weekly tech update.
