Didn't see this anywhere, so decided to post.

^SWISS MISS: Roger Federer is impressed with the comeback of fellow Swiss player Martina Hingis.

"I was incredibly happy (about) her comeback because, like everybody in here or around the world, I didn't know what to expect," Federer said. "By qualifying for the (WTA Championships) and finishing in the top eight, I think it's one of probably the best comebacks ever."

But they will not appear together at the Hopman Cup next January in Perth, Australia.

"Maybe one day we'll play at Hopman Cup again," Federer said. "I know it's not going to be next year because we spoke about it and she preferred to play the Gold Coast and I prefer to play nothing or some other tournament."

Federer :worship: :worship:
Federer + Martina = Deadly combination

Gosh, he's so boring... Nice what he has to say about Martina though, it would indeed be nice to see them play in the Hompan Cup... But gimme Baghdatis or Nadal over him any day... :)

sounds like he'll do it if she does it, but not without her.

"I prefer to play nothing or some other tournament."


:lol: That's a clever why of saying I don't want to play the Hopman Cup.

I think the only other time they played was in 2001, when they won the title against Seles-Gambill. Seles/Gambill beat Hingis/Federer in the mixed though 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5).

yep, but at the time federer was still very much unknown.
but they seem to get along very well right from then.
there are many pictures of them together in the tournament, enjoying themselves.

OMFG! They would be amazing teams but none of them will play! How about:

Hingis/Federer vs. Justine/Nadal :eek: ...so good!

It's cool that Fed pays attention to the WTA :yeah:

If he wants to win Wimby mixed, he needs to drop Lindsay a call :angel:

Q. It's a pleasure that we have Martina Hingis comeback this year. Do you have expectations to reunite with her to play Hopman Cup, 'cause you won the championship in 2001?

ROGER FEDERER: We're not gonna play, no.



Q. Do you have some expectations to play her again?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, first of all, I was incredibly happy of her comeback because, like everybody in here or around the world, I didn't know what to expect from her comeback, you know, if it's gonna be -- is she gonna make the top 50, is she gonna be top 20, what is it, you know.

By qualifying for the Masters and finishing in top 8, I think it's one of probably the best comebacks, you know, ever.

I'm very impressed. Now, later on, not so surprised because she's always been a phenomenon, you know, in what she's done. She's had incredible success early on like nobody else. In a way, it was expected. But, you know, the game has changed over those three years she was out. I'm really happy she's playing.

But maybe one day we'll play at Hopman Cup again. I know it's not going to be next year because we spoke about it and she preferred to play the Gold Coast and I prefer to play nothing or some other tournament, so...
