Well i was trying to find a particular picture of Martina and it wasn't until i looked through pages of Google Images of her that i realised, there have been so any memorable moments from her career. A few are offered below - enjoy!

She certainly has sported some 'interesting' ensembles in her time. Love them or hate them, i'm sure they're expensive!

http://www.sport1.at/coremedia/pics/32/14/39/6x220x175x1,property=original.jpg
She certainly isn't camera shy.

http://www.picture-newsletter.com/hingis/martina-hingis-mail.jpg
Her mailbox apparently - lol!

Love her or hate her - Martina has been an icon in women's tennis for a number of years. It's great to have her back and i thought maybe some other posters might like to take a trip down Hingis memory lane - enjoy!

The WTA tour was at one point sponsored by the Hoover company, that's why she's with the vacuum on the court :)

There used to be an award called the Hoover Mover award for the player that moved the most rankings positions within a month period.

She's with the vaccum at the 1998 Chase Championships following her win.

What's up with the hair on her arm in the Die Another Day launch? :scared: *barf*

one of my most memorable martina moments (whoa, lots of m words) was the chase final in 96 vs. steffi when it went 5 sets and martina just cramped on the court and collapsed a few times...she got bageled twice in that match! after that match i knew i'd always be a martina fan, since she got bageled by steffi in the 3rd, and somehow won the 4th, but then had nothing left, but her fight was there...
anyway, the drama of that match was great
