Very nice afternoon and entertaining match.
Didn't expect Anke to play so well as she did today. :worship:

I took some pictures but unfortunately the quality is very bad. :(

Hingis looks really in shape, especially compared to a few months ago when she seemed to have gained a lot of weight. Perhaps gearing up for a 2010 comeback???

Well, dur........
Anke retired centuries ago and Hingis' drug frenzy wasn't THAT long ago...

Martina looks great. I think it's obvious she wants to be back on tour.

Martina looks great there! I miss her so much... How was the match? How did Martina play?

It was really fun to watch. The surface was a fast carpet..
Great shots from both players but ok it was just a show match. Martina looked really in good condition.

Miss you Marti! Please come back!

She's not allowed to. Deal with it.

She's not allowed to. Deal with it.

At the moment she's not but this October I believe she will be able to return, the question is..."Does she want to"? I personally don't think so however she will continue to be gracious and accept exhibition tournaments I'm sure...I'd really like to see her try at least one year in doubles...that would be fun:bounce:Thanks for the lovely pics, nobody lights up the court with her smile like Hingis:D Nice to see Anke as well!

She´s using Ana racket!!
Her ban stops in late 2009. maybe she´s doing what she did in 2005, playing exhibition to get match practice!

Martina looks great! Waah, you should be in Melbourne right now!

With Justine gone, Mauresmo nearing retirement, I think the tour desperately needs a player like Hingis.
It would be very interesting if she comes back after the ban is over. In fact, if she and Kournikova were to team up to play doubles, it would be something huge.

yeaa she playing with the ana'racquet :):) she looks so fit and great interview off event in my blog :)

rumours or reality ???? today the director off tournament say that :

Impressive was the form in which both Hingis and the two parent Huber presented. Perhaps what is truth to the rumors, the Peter Dietrich, Managing Director of Havelland hall, wants to hear: "I've heard that Martina is again on the professional tour wants to try." The talent has to doubt it - and now also the serenity. (From Tim Tolsdorff)
what do you think ?

I don't believe she'll start a comeback.

Here it says:
Brandenburgs Sportminister Holger Rupprecht überreichte ihr einen großen Pokal mit den Worten: „Wir würden Sie gern wieder im richtigen Tennis-Zirkus erleben.“ Doch daraus wird nichts.
[...] Die Sperre läuft bis Oktober. „Ich habe den Druck, jeden Tag auf den Platz zu müssen, hinter mir.“

Local politician while giving her the winners' cup: "We'd like to see you back in real tennis". But this won't happen. [...]
The ban runs until October. "I left the pressure behind me having to step into court every day."

Thank you to the OP for the pics. It's fantastic to see these 2 players. But it also makes me a little sad given the state of the Tour right now. Anke looks wonderful. It's great to see something so nice and positive on here.

Thanks to you and you friend FrOzon for the pics. Both look good (especially Martina).

I still dream of a comeback for Martina, but I think it very unlikely. I'm just glad her first comeback at least gave me the chance to see her play (and win) a competitive match in person.

I know she says she won't come back, but I hope she can just at least play a few matches to go out the right way :sad:
