Hingis to play WTT in 2010

Martina Hingis to play World TeamTennis; rules out full return 'at this point'

By Howard Fendrich (CP) 1 hour ago

Martina Hingis says she can't help but think about making yet another comeback when she sees the success Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin are having after being away from tennis.

Hingis retired for the second time in 2007, when she was banned for testing positive for cocaine.

That suspension ended in September, and the five-time Grand Slam singles champion will be playing more tennis this year.

The 29-year-old Hingis has committed to a full season of WorldTeam Tennis, the coed league founded by Billie Jean King and heading into its 35th season.

Hingis will be assigned to a team in next week's draft.

But she tells The Associated Press she rules out the possibility of returning to the tour "at this point," primarily because there's too much travel.

She needs to come back now or she'll be too old to really compete at the top!

Martina, just come back and play less tournaments. Who cares where your ranked. I never have more than 3 Favs, but If she does come back,she will be my #1 Fav again. I would then 4 Favs, which would be a record for me.

Re: Hingis to play WTT in 2010

It's kind of funny, after the ban it was always not coming back and now here is the first change in not coming back "at this point". You can tell she's thinking about it, she could play for another 2-3 years with a limited schedule, if she planned it well it wouldn't be too bad.

Petkovic Li Clijsters Jankovic Lisicki
Kvitova Wawrinka Gasquet Nalbandian

Don't give me false hope Marti!!!

Still,
Maybe??

She might be waiting to see how does in WTT against some real top competition. If she comes back she can still win some tournaments and if she is fit (meaning FAST) she can be top 10 IMHO, still, it's not about ranking, I just want to see her competing again.

Martina Hingis Forever!!!

She won a bit less than 40% of her 3 set matches during her comeback...that doesn't strike me as someone who had fitness as a high priority.
