Hingis to take wildcards into Sydney and AO?

if today's announcement isn't a hoax, it would be natural to assume that Hingis is planning on playing Oz - anybody know any details?

one article said she was coming back in Pattaya although the poster did not say what the source of the article was

another article claims that she will be in Sydney / AO

most articles say she has not yet set a timetable so

If I were here, I'd wait until the clay season....softer on her knees and feet.

if she's not coming back until a later time, what was the point of making an announcement now?

It's not a hoax. In addition to being on the front page of Yahoo! News and CNN, the WTA is making an announcement about her return on their homepage.

I assume she'll play in Australia. Why wait for Pattaya?

exactly, if it's a real comeback then Pattaya is irrelevant, she ought to cut right to the chase. But just because Yahoo and CNN are on board doesn't prove this is legit.

A full article on the WTA homepage is what sold me.

"She is targeting a return in early 2006." I'm going to assume this means a tournament in Australia, or maybe Pattaya. Anything beyond that I wouldn't consider "early" 2006.

I wouldn't start with Sydney/AO. Start slow, get some wins, RG is soon enough for slams.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

This wasn't a spur of the moment decision, IMO Martina will of being training hard for a while now. I hope she plays some lower tier tourneys to build some confidence and momentum.

Maria Sharapova

Doesn't want the magic carpet ride to end

When I'm alone with only dreams of you that won't come true, WADA I do?

OMG - Martina just loves Sydney/AO

I doubt she'll comeback to play them - After February!
