Doctor: Hingis can play
By Mark Stevens

MARTINA HINGIS's surgeon says the Swiss superstar faces no medical hurdles in her comeback bid.

Amid speculation the former world No.1 will be forced to retire, Dr Heinz Buehlmann has made it clear that Hingis's ankle has healed perfectly.

But Buehlmann has conceded the mental battle to return to the tour could be much tougher.

"Martina can play again," Buehlmann told the Sonntags Blick newspaper.

"From a medical point of view, a comeback would be no problem, but Martina would have to grit her teeth and be prepared for some pain," he said.

"She has had this problem for four years, but the joints of the foot which was operated on is absolutely OK. I know Martina very well, and I know from the past that she can come back.

"But whether she wants that, I do not know."

Hingis, who is studying for a degree in English, professes to be happy away from the tour.

"It is totally possible that I won't play top tennis again, because my feet will not allow it," she said last week. "I do not want to completely exclude a return.

"It is possible if I can play pain-free tennis again, but that is not the case with my foot injury yet."

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

It sounds like she's sick of playing in pain--not such a bad thing really...I hope she doesn't retire!


I am a sinner too!
Jesus answered and said to him[Nicodemus, a Pharisee],"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again[of the Spirit/above], he cannot see the kingdom of God."--John 3:3

Good works can't save you from hell!! Jesus loves you and wants to be in your heart and mind!!!

I will worship Jesus forever!

I think she will take a year or so rest, until she is hungry for tennis again, I think it is a good thing I can see her returning in a year or two time

-Oldest game in wtaboard, started in April 2000 even before wtaworld is born.
-You can create your own player, making their own name, making their personality.
-Some player has been playing for more than 10 years

At least she's doing something worthwhile in the meantime. I too wish to see her return.

I'm going out, I'm going to drink myself to death
And in the crowd I see you with someone else
I brace myself 'cause I know it's going to hurt
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse

I think it depends on the outcome of her lawsuit in Italy. If she wins the $40 million then she'll probably continue to feel pain when she plays. OTOH, if she loses the lawsuit, I'm sure that pain'll go right away.
