Cincinnati, USA - Welcome to Cincy! And the start of the hardcourt season on the ATC, most of the field have several aces on hard and they've been waiting a long time for this season, the time has finally arrived and we should be in for a very competitive few weeks, good look to all!
Polish star Marta Domachowska has decided to make a comeback to the beloved ATC tour after reportedly stating that she was bored sitting in her lavish mansion during the day and partying during the night and then coming home in the morning to do the same thing over again.
Marta Domachowska had her best results during Season 3 of ATC, scoring numerous wins over top players and winning various tournaments on the fast court surfaces which suited her high-risk game. However, while she often performed well during the regular season, she was also well-known for choking like a cheap whore during the Grand Slams, often under performing.
During the start of Season 4, Domachowska decided to leave the tour all together and marrying a wealthy 69 year old man and living off his fortune, reportedly having countless affairs with other men.
"Even when I was playing on tour, I don't think I was 100% focused. I guess I could get away with that during the regular tournaments, being completely trashed the night before a match but I could definitely not doing that during the Slams." Domachowska had no comment on her marriage and her reported affairs.
On whether she has kept in touch with her fellow players, Domachowska says "I have kept mostly in touch with my gal-pal and ATC's biggest superstar Maria Kirilenko. I've hung out with her a few times and I'm sure we'll have a blast this week when we play in Cincinnati. I'm also happy to see Hantuchova and that other Maria as well!

Her first match is against Justine Henin, Roland Garros champion. "I met her and I got some really weird Krajicek vibes from her. Definitely think she needs some help and hopefully I get off the court quick enough not to catch anything from her."
On whether she is fit enough to compete on tour again, Marta laughs it off, stating "My plan during my matches is just to hit the ball really hard and not waste much energy so I think I'll be okay."
The tour is often noted for it's lack of star power with the exception of Maria Kirilenko. Domachowska somewhat agrees, stating "I think that it is true and I didn't really step it up in terms of press conferences and dedicating myself and stuff like that to the tour like my good friend Maria has which I regret because it really is a wonderful tour and the director is amazing."
With this comeback, Domachowska hopes to dedicate herself completely to the sport of tennis and the ATC tour, only promising to party and get fucked up after the tournament.
Tatiana Golovin is French professional tennis player. She is best known for her explosive forehand, which was said to be one of the best at the time. She won first match on the tour:)Tatiana Golovin def. Daniela Hantuchova 7-5,6-1. Very good match! Golovin played fantastic:)
She hopes that she gains a match at the tournament yet. Good luck Tati:)
