Is this a sign that Martina Hingis is seriously contemplating...

returning to the tour? A few of my friends went down to Saddlebrook during March for preseason, and Hingis was in the court next to them practicing/training. I saw some pictures and she decked out in her Adidas apparel and all. Does Martina have any exhibitions coming up? I mean I dont think she would still be training at Saddlebrook if she wasnt contemplating a return...right?

Surely there's a possibility she's just playing to keep in shape and have fun...

But I'd like to think she's preparing for a comeback.

I think that's the case. Most of the "marquee players" for WTT only play for one or two nights. Hingis is playing for six. She's also deliberately picked the matches where she'll get the best competition too. She'll be playing Raymond, Shaughnessy, and Navratilova in singles/doubles among others. She'll also be playing challenger level players to get the wins she needs to restore her confidence (Evie Dominikovic, Channelle Scheepers, Jamea Jackson

That's a really good point.

If she is planning a comeback, she is doing it very smartly.

While I'm sure that returning to the WTA would make her happier than competing in the World Team Tennis matches, she is realistic and knows that WTT is the only option for her at the moment So good luck Martina, have fun!

if Martina could beef up her serve, no reason she couldnt come back and compete well.

I hope Martina comes back.
Since she left the tour, I've been losing my passion to WTA day by day.

Go, Martina!
