I would imagine not. She retired and there is some debate, no matter where you stand, if she was injured or not. I think she starts at the bottom of the barrel.

Is it not true that a player who has won a GS (and BTW was ranked #1) could get a WC wherever they want? And as many WC as they want. Not to mention that Hingis would draw A LOT of people!

She will certainly get WC. It's just a question of whether they will give her a special seeding for being out 3 years with injury.

i hope not. i'd like her to start from the bottom and work her way to the top. that way, she can show everyone that she's still got what it takes to win.

I thought they voted against that particular special seeding. But I guess, in the end it is up to the tournaments themselves, not the tour.

I hardly think it would be fair to say ... a Dinara Safina.. or even a Patty Schnyder, who have worked very hard to get where they are and be bumped down because Martina Hingis thinks that she wants to play tennis again. :-\

Hingis will get all the MD WC's she wants, but no special seedings. Those are pretty much done away with for everyone.

If you say so. I don't think she's going to beat many top 10 players BUT I think she'll be very consistent in the tournis she plays like she usually is.
She will climb up the rankings. that is if she's dedicated herself fully to tennis like Patty Schynder and Mary Pierce have in the last two years.

There are no more special seedings. But remember, there are sponsor's exemptions. Pretty much any tournament that wants can give her a wildcard anytome they want. They could give Chris Evert a main draw wild card if they wanted.

They got rid of those for reasons unknown. They didn't work with Venus or Serena and they just went from the rules. Its going to produce some very strange early rounds because we could have Martina, Jen and later hopefully Alicia all unseeded. That could seriously unmake your day.
