Hingis "likely to contest Sydney International"

The beginning of this article from the Herald Sun is a little different that what we've seen for those that are interested. The rest is just old news.

She's really brave. She hasn't played in three years and she returns at such a competitive tournament. She must really have something up her sleeve! I'm excited but also quite nervous for her. At Sydney she might only play one match. A lower tier would have been better. Who's playing in Sydney?

Thanks for the interesting article.

I notice a quote in the article from Martina's doctor which indicates that there is a strong possibility of further feet problems if she does too much training or plays too much.

"It's a case of how much pressure she puts on the feet though -- so it could come back depending on how many tournaments she plays and how much training she does," Buehlmann said.

How real are these fears.

In related news: "Sheikh Mohammed dropped a hint that former world number one Martina Hingis of Switzerland may play in the Qatar Open in February."

Reliability? But still...

Nowhere in the article is there a quote that mentions Sydney. I think we can rely on Mario's quote rather than speculation from this writer as to the "obvious starting point," as it was called by the writer.

Until she or Mario talk about Sydney, I am not getting my hopes up.

I was quoting the article in my title. But still...this is in the article:

"Hingis's manager Mario Widmer said the Swiss baseliner was likely to contest the Sydney International"
