Federer is impressed with Martina Hingis' Comeback

Didn't see this anywhere, so decided to post.

^SWISS MISS: Roger Federer is impressed with the comeback of fellow Swiss player Martina Hingis.

"I was incredibly happy (about) her comeback because, like everybody in here or around the world, I didn't know what to expect," Federer said. "By qualifying for the (WTA Championships) and finishing in the top eight, I think it's one of probably the best comebacks ever."

But they will not appear together at the Hopman Cup next January in Perth, Australia.

"Maybe one day we'll play at Hopman Cup again," Federer said. "I know it's not going to be next year because we spoke about it and she preferred to play the Gold Coast and I prefer to play nothing or some other tournament."

Federer
Federer + Martina = Deadly combination

Re: Federer is impressed with Martina Hingis' Comeback

Gosh, he's so boring... Nice what he has to say about Martina though, it would indeed be nice to see them play in the Hompan Cup... But gimme Baghdatis or Nadal over him any day...

I'm all alone with my delusions

That's a clever why of saying I don't want to play the Hopman Cup.

I think the only other time they played was in 2001, when they won the title against Seles-Gambill. Seles/Gambill beat Hingis/Federer in the mixed though 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5).

yep, but at the time federer was still very much unknown.
but they seem to get along very well right from then.
there are many pictures of them together in the tournament, enjoying themselves.
