You will always hear your singles as faster than the player zipping past you. :)

EDIT: Actually NO! In reality, 'time' for the player zipping past you slows down, so you WOULD hear your singles as faster than their's... BUT! Assuming we are at atmospheric conditions, 60% the speed of light is like Mach 400, so you wouldn't hear the other player's singles at all!.. at least not over the sonic boom. Ha! Science!
