After the match, Hingis on being asked if she is going to play singles if she is successful in doubles: "No, I've said it last week...playing singles is very physically demanding...I am not 17 already." (I just translated from this Chinese article (http://sports.sina.com.cn/t/2013-08-07/11276710076.shtml))

Oh Legend why

As much as I love Martina, I don't want her to return to singles. Doubles is more than enough for this greedy hingis fan. I'd rather see her focus on doubles and get to the top 10or top 5 then struggle in singles.

Please work on your serve a bit Martina. Hopefully, Daniela and Martina just need time to gel properly as a team

Well I hate to agree with you martinafan, but you a VERY GOOD POINT. I saw how she played in Rogers Cup, and her serve is her Achilles Heel. Does Martina have Hitting Partner? Although she’s already a legend no need to prove anything, but improving her game is not a bad idea at all.

You are absolutely right TheNexus. It doesn’t mean you are a former no. 1 and recently inducted as a Legend would imply you will have an easy win with all your matches. She should start from the bottom and that means – she will encounter a lot of losses. She knows pretty well that Tennis requires a lot of preparation.

I paste what I said in another thread:

Heartbreaking loss...

It pains me to say it, but Hingis is not ready for the comeback yet. Yes, her court sense, her craftiness and touch are still there, but she definitely needs to improve her serve, at least back to her 2006 level. Otherwise, she'll continue to lose at first and second rounds.

I saw her entry in the Tokyo website, so she hasn't given up - yet- and I think with her pride, she won't allow herself to retire again without at least achieving something first - so I think she will still continue. But she really needs to take a break from the tournaments and train hard before competing again. She can't expect herself to breeze through the draws with her talent alone and no training behind the scenes. A reason why she's succcessful in her 2006 comeback is because she really commits herself to training like almost a whole year, just to keep up with the current level of the game before coming back - something she didn't do this time.

Let's hope we'll still see her next year in main draws.

I also agree that Dani is just not good enough and Hingis needs a power player to assist her game. I know it's Dani who persuade her out of retirement, but I think it's time for a split and try out with better doubles players.

Nothing officially confirmed yet, but I think it's quite likely she'll continue to play in 2014, as theseekers said. Martina herself said in Tokyo that she'll continue to play exhibitions this year to decide whether to coach or continue to play.

Her serve isn't quite at WTA level yet, so I assume she's training hard right now in the off season if she plans to continue ;)

The pairing with Martina Navratilove at Aus Open was amazing, I bet it's something Martina Jr. was hoping for for a long time :) They were funny on court and won 2 out of 3 games, which proves that best will always be the best :) I just wish I could see her play more...

Hingis To Play Doubles At Indian Wells

March 04, 2014

INDIAN WELLS, CA, USA - The BNP Paribas Open doubles draw is out and amongst all of the best teams in the world is one that jumps out - Martina Hingis and Sabine Lisicki, a wildcard team.

Hingis made a very popular return to the doubles tour last summer after almost six years of retirement, playing five tournaments with Daniela Hantuchova during the summer hardcourt series. The pair didn't win back-to-back matches at any of the tournaments, but with Hingis coming back without a ranking, the pair drew top teams in the early rounds of just about every one of those tournaments they played.

Hingis' doubles credentials are substantial. She won 37 WTA doubles titles in her career, including nine Grand Slam doubles titles - she also completed a Calendar Year Grand Slam in doubles in 1998 (winning the Australian Open with Mirjana Lucic-Baroni and the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open with Jana Novotna). She was No.1 for 35 weeks and won a Grand Slam mixed doubles title too.

She's also a former doubles champion at Indian Wells - she won it with Anna Kournikova in 1999.

Lisicki, who Hingis has been helping since Australia, has also proven herself on the doubles court. She has two WTA doubles titles to her name, both at Stuttgart - with Samantha Stosur in 2011 and Mona Barthel in 2013. And she also reached the doubles final at Wimbledon alongside Stosur in 2011.

Hingis and Lisicki open their campaign against No.7 seeds Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua, one of the breakthrough teams of 2013 - they made three Grand Slam doubles finals together.

And it won't get any easier. The Top 4 teams in the world are all in the draw - Hsieh Su-Wei and Peng Shuai, Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina, Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, and Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik, seeded No.1 through No.4 - and all four teams have won Grand Slams together.

Game, set and match for Nelsons’ Arnicare
Nelsons has announced a PR and marketing campaign for 2014 in which it has teamed up with tennis great Martina Hingis and World Junior No 1 Belinda Bencic to endorse its Arnicare Arnica Cooling Gel.Hingis still holds the record for becoming the youngest No 1 player in history and has won five Grand Slam singles and nine Grand Slam Women’s Doubles titles. She commented: “I’m a big fan of Nelsons Arnicare Arnica Cooling Gel; I massage it in to help relieve the heavy feeling in my legs after exercise or just after a day of being on my feet for too long.” She also tweeted “glad to represent #arnicareUK! Love cooling gel, great companion after an intense match!”.Bencic, who won the Wimbledon and French Open titles in 2013 and is now making her first foray into Grand Slam events on the WTA Professional Tour, also said she liked to use the gel after training for its cooling sensation.Alessandra Godio, Nelsons Arnicare brand manager, said: “We are really excited to have teamed up with the tennis duo in 2014 Nelsons Arnicare Arnica Cooling Gel. We hope that working with Martina and Belinda will help to raise the profile and awareness of the product within the target market.”

nice interview with the swiss_miss :)

Five things I can't live without: Martina Hingis on riding horses and watching Columbo


1 HORSES

I started riding when I was 11 and from the moment I got in the saddle I was spellbound. Horses are such graceful creatures but they are also wild and powerful which I love.

When I was playing professional tennis I would always go for a ride after a big match. Escaping into the countryside on horseback was an antidote to all the noise and stress of competing.

I have three horses which I adore. I still ride whenever I can and I have become passionate about racing too.

I recently went to Ascot which was very glamorous and great fun.

2 COLUMBO

When I was a teenager my mother Melanie and I loved watching detective series together.

Our very favourite character was Columbo, the rather shambolic homicide detective with the Los Angeles police.

He was so unconventional that you couldn’t help liking him. What was different about the show was you always knew who the murderer was, you just had to figure out how or why they did it.

To this day I still love detective series.

No matter where you are in the world and how basic your grasp of the language, the format is always the same: a dead body, a motive and a murderer.

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Congratulations. Martina, can you tell us what does it feel like to win a tournament after so many years?
MARTINA HINGIS: Well, obviously it's very exciting, you know, when you convert the match point and, you know, you're like, Yes, we did it (smiling).
But she played incredible. I mean, that super‑tiebreaker, I was like, Okay, I better put the ball in and let her do the rest, because she was really on fire. You know, from 5‑All, it was 10‑5, and it was just amazing. Yeah.
I mean, she definitely gets going when it's tight. Where sometimes other players go down, she gets up and lifts her level.
I mean, I just tried to, you know, at least not to make the mistake and just let her play, right? So it's amazing, yeah.

Q. Do you have intentions of continuing to play tournaments? What's the future like?
MARTINA HINGIS: Well, I think two weeks ago when you asked me, it probably would be a completely different answer from today (smiling).
Like last week, I was like, I'm not sure if I want to put myself out there like this and lose first, second round.
Now, after this victory, definitely things change. Yeah. Now it's definitely ‑‑ Sabine's next week priority is singles, and see how that goes in the next tournament, but yeah. Well, I would be very happy to continue to play some more doubles, of course.

Q. As you said, you lost in the first round in Indian Wells two weeks ago. After that, I saw you practice very hard on the practice court.
MARTINA HINGIS: Yeah, well, I had to get going. Because we were so close, like even in last year, and I was like every time so close. I'm like, I'm not losing another first round no matter what.
I saw the draw again, and we thought, Okay, this is definitely a tough match, but then if we overcome last time, we get really close, and it was better and better, and I think, yeah, if we can fit together and like some of the things that makes a difference, and we did it this week definitely.
The first match was huge, definitely, with the confidence, and after, one by one.
SABINE LISICKI: And the quarters.
MARTINA HINGIS: And the quarters. Seven match points, yeah.

Q. As you know, Martina Navratilova, after she retired, she played another 10 years in doubles. I want to know if that's an inspiration?
MARTINA HINGIS: Good for her (smiling and indicating thumbs up).
I just take it one at a time here now. I think we play the next tournament, just really enjoy it.
SABINE LISICKI: Enjoy it.
MARTINA HINGIS: And go out there and have fun. Yeah.

Q. Sabine, can you tell us, the thought of playing with Martina and what have you learned playing with her?
SABINE LISICKI: It's great. The most important thing for us is to enjoy it. We go out there and we have fun.
It obviously helps me a lot for the singles to have also matches that, you know, to get into. I didn't have enough matches this year because of injury and things like that, you know, all the nerves that come in.
And being in a final, there is nothing on the practice court that, you know, can make the situation even close to that.
Obviously with Martina, I always wanted to play with her. We talked about it at Wimbledon last year, and finally we did it here in the States. I think we are just happy we enjoy it, and we will see when we play next. Yeah.

Q. Can you guys talk about the tiebreak, seven points in a row, how that turned around. Especially, Martina, you did amazing backhand lob.
MARTINA HINGIS: Oh, yeah, butwe were 8‑5 winning. It's first to get there.
I think the key was definitely when we were 4‑5 down, and Sabine hit that like long rally and winner, that backhand to equal 5‑All.
From there, I mean, they tried to obviously play her and break her down, but that's when...
SABINE LISICKI: I love those moments.
MARTINA HINGIS: Yeah, she didn't let it happen. So that's when she really even stepped it up. She was like a Chinese wall and hitting even faster.
Yeah. She was incredible. I mean, I didn't have to do that much really. So they played her, and, yeah, the lob was already for match point. I mean, great, I felt really good, but the work was done before by her.

Hingis & Lisicki Conquer Miami

Martina Hingis' doubles comeback has hit the big time - she and new partner Sabine Lisicki won the Premier Mandatory-level Sony Open Tennis on Sunday.

March 30, 2014

MIAMI, FL, USA - Martina Hingis and Sabine Lisicki capped a dream fortnight on Sunday afternoon, beating Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina to take home the Sony Open Tennis doubles crown.

Playing just their second tournament together, Hingis and Lisicki followed up earlier upsets of No.6 seeds Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Safarova and No.5 seeds Cara Black and Sania Mirza with a 46 64 105 win against the No.2 seeds, winning six points in a row from 4-5 in the match tie-break to end it.

"Obviously it's very exciting when you convert match point and you're like, 'Yes, we did it,'" Hingis said. "But Sabine played incredible. That super tie-breaker, I was like, 'Okay, I better put the ball in and let her do the rest.' Because she was really on fire. From 5-all on it was just amazing. She definitely gets going when it's tight - other players sometimes go down, but she lifts her level in those moments."

"I always wanted to play with Martina, obviously," Lisicki said. "We talked about it at Wimbledon last year, and finally we did it here in the States. I think we're just happy and really enjoying it."

After almost six years in retirement, Hingis returned to the doubles tour last summer, playing five WTA events alongside Daniela Hantuchova. After the US Open she didn't play for another six months but got back in the game at Indian Wells alongside Lisicki - this was their second tournament together.

Hingis was asked the obvious question in her post-match press conference - what's next?

"Well, I think two weeks ago if you asked me that question, it would probably be a completely different answer from today!" she said. "Last week, I was like, 'I'm not sure if I want to put myself out there like this and lose first, second round. But now, after this victory, definitely things have changed.

"I would be very happy to continue to play some more doubles."

Hingis now has 38 WTA doubles titles, having won 37 between 1995 and 2007 (11 with Anna Kournikova, eight with Jana Novotna, three with Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario and Helena Sukova, two with Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, Mary Pierce and Natasha Zvereva and one each with Lindsay Davenport, Gigi Fernández, Mary Joe Fernandez, Maria Kirilenko, Barbara Schett and Nathalie Tauziat).

Lisicki now has three - she won Stuttgart in 2011 (with Sam Stosur) and 2013 (with Mona Barthel).
