Re: BOMBSHELL: Hingis playing singles in the fall?!

I don't think Lindsay meant that HINGIS has told her that she was only playing double to get ready for single later. I just think that Lindsay THINKS that Hingis is starting with double to play some single later in the year. I mean, Hingis has done that in the past, also Lindsay herself has started with a couple double tournaments to finally come back in single. KDK did the same and I'm sure many other players do that to test the water. Sharapova did the same for one tournament after her shoulder surgery lmao, and she wasn't nearly as successful in doubles as Hingis is. Personally I think that it would be really tough for any past single champion to only be satisfied playing double and that's why Davenport is THINKING Hingis may start playing single soon too.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Hingis says singles not in comeback plans

"It's a completely different world. Even World Team Tennis now, it's brutal, it's only one set but still the next day you wake up, and you have to put so much more effort into it."

"When you're 17 everything seems so easy, but now I'm almost twice the age," Hingis said. "I wouldn't want to come out and play one or two matches and then lose third round, that's not my type of personality. So not at this point, no."

She said "not at this point".

She is leaving the door open... which means she is waiting to see how well she does in doubles.

If she bombs with Hantuchova then she will make it for sure... but if she feels confident then she will return.

If she truely had no intention whatsoever to return to singles she would have said "Never will I again" or something to that affect.
