Thumbs down No Dream Team for Swiss in 2012!

http://www.livetennisguide.com/2011/12/21/...ngis-duo-ended/



Swiss Davis Cup Captain, Severin Luthi has confirmed that the talk between Roger Federer and Martina Hingis have come to an end, as the both the players have concluded not to play mixed doubles at the Olympics, according to reports.

Sadly, this dream/team will not participate, I would say mainly the decision lies in Martina's corner, she would have to return to active participation in tennis full time to qualify, at 31 that's a tough chore and then maybe there are other obstacles preventing her from playing like would she get clearance from the doping charges in her past? Either way the committment would be unbelievably tough! So we'll have to "dream" elsewhere!

No shock. The only way Martina was to be eligible to play mixed was to be qualified for women's doubles anyway.

Aw. It's not unexpected, but it would have been great had it been possible.

Maybe Mirka can come back to the tour for a while to qualify. Everyone is lucky that she got injured and married Rodge. Justine Henin was her "bitch", don't you know? :P All the slam winners post 2002 have an asterisk next to them, as far as I'm concerned. It's like the Graf argument all over again. Serena, Justine, Venus and Kim are all lucky they were playing with their main challenger removed.
