Healing Hingis won't rush back

London - Former world number one Martina Hingis will not try and rush her recovery from spring foot surgery by resuming her tennis career too early.

Missing from the $12.3 million Wimbledon Championships as well as last month's French Open, the 21-year-old has said she will be taking her time to return to the courts.

The best bet for a re-sighting of the Swiss could be the US Open, which begins in just over seven weeks. Hingis, though, is listed in the entry for a hard-court tournament in San Diego starting July 29.

"There is no time frame for my comeback," said the five-time Grand Slam champion in a Web-chat. "I saw my doctor and all is doing good, but it has only been five weeks since my surgery.

"I don't want to rush anything and jeopardise the rest of the season. I haven't set a date for my comeback."

Besides following Wimbledon on television, Hingis has reportedly been taking a few golf lessons with the father of pro golfer boyfriend Sergio Garcia. She is also said to be learning a bit of Spanish.

New coach for Kim

Kim Clijsters hasn't just been watching boyfriend Lleyton Hewitt advance through the men's draw during the second week of the Wimbledon Championships.

The Belgian teenager has taken on a new coach, who will begin working with her the week before next month's start of the US Open.

Guiding the 2001 French Open finalist and world number 5 will be compatriot Marc Dehous, who replaces Clijsters' long-time coach Carl Maes, who was with her for almost seven years.

Good for Hingis. Take her time and get right, physically. After what happened last spring, with the strained Achilles, Chanda took extra time to get healthy this year. We've seen the results.

Here's to everyone who's injured getting healthy, and everyone that's healthy staying healthy.

I hereby decree that injuries be banned!

that's very sensible of hingis. it's more than the season that's at stake - its the rest of her career. i think there is wisdom in the approach of the williams girls - less number of tournaments, sustained results at those tournaments, fewer injuries. serena's 5000plus points from twelve tournaments demonstrates that staying healthy and performing well is more important than playing a lot of tournaments. let's wish martina sustained good health from now on.

She deserves a break and time to have some fun, I think she should take her time until she is 100%.

So glad to see Martina relaxing and enjoying herself and her time with Sergio. It'll allow their relationship to flourish I think and she should get back some of her hunger for the game. Get well soon Marti but certainly don't rush yourself!
