Hingis and Navratilova to play doubles in 2006?

"I don’t know yet for sure. I mean I've talked to Martina (Navratilova) during Team Tennis, so probably there’s possibilities that I might play here and there some doubles," said Hingis, who is one of only five players (Navratilova, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, Lindsay Davenport and Clijsters) to hold the top spot in singles and doubles simultaneously. "But I don’t have a partner right now at the moment. So priorities will be always on singles rather than doubles. I won’t say no though if I can play sometime again."

come on Martina/Martina!
although singles should always come first.
Would be interesting to see her team up with players like maybe Nastya , Kim , Lindsay , Maria , Justine , for the fun of it.

I think they would be a good team - they're both excellent at doubles ... However, Martina should focus on the singles

She is a good agent for herself. She knows where the attention or spot light will be, and makes sure she gets there before the curtain opens.

Maybe it's just a dream, but I'd love to see Martina H. play doubles with Venus!

Nice to see Kim get some credit for this for once. People usually forget she was #1 in singles and doubles at the same time for a little while -- and she may be the last one to ever achieve this, because top players don't play doubles much any more.

As for a possible Martina/Martina team, as much as I'd love to see it, I worry about Hingis overplaying. But maybe at the start of her comeback, playing doubles would help her get back in the swing of things faster.
