MARTINA GUNS FOR SOL

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/40682000/jpg/_40682727_hingis203.jpg

The Sunday Mirror reports that Martina Hingis has fallen for Arsenal and England defender Sol Campbell.

The pair were apparently introduced by Campbell's former Tottenham team-mate Ramon Vega at an Adidas publicity launch in October.

Since then, they are said to have enjoyed a number of dinner dates before they both attended the launch of the United Nations 'Year of Sport' in December.

Hingis, 24, has been single since splitting from Swiss restauranteur Stefan Egger while 30-year-old Campbell recently ended his relationship with interior designer Kelly Hoppen.

I'm so glad she isn't with that STefan guy anymore. I never did like him. I'm thinking this is a fling, but this guy looks better than the Stefan guy.

Whatever........ I hope he's a fun guy and that he makes Martina laugh a lot. :)

The original article from the Sunday Mirror -

HEADLINE: SOL COURT WITH MARTINA HINGIS;
EXCLUSIVE

BYLINE: SUZANNE KERINS AND ALLISON MARTIN

HIGHLIGHT:
Hingis was on top of the world at 16; Sol's ex-love Kelly Hoppen; Dido dated soccer star

BODY:
ENGLAND football star Sol Campbell is enjoying a love match with former Wimbledon tennis champion Martina Hingis.

The Arsenal idol has formed a doubles partnership with the 24-year-old Swiss beauty, who has an estimated £25million fortune, after meeting her at a sports sponsorship event.

And the couple have made it game, set and match after going out together on a number of secret dates.

A friend said: "It's early days, but Sol has really fallen for Martina. They are taking things slowly, but have become inseparable in recent weeks.

"Both of them don't want to rush into a full-on romance too quickly. But they have really hit it off and have a lot in common.

"She has such a refreshing and easy-going nature and is always smiling. Their passion for sport has made their relationship very strong.""

Sol, 30, who has a £16million fortune, was linked to singer Dido after his split from wealthy interior designer Kelly Hoppen, who is worth £30million. But friends say that was not a serious relationship, and he only met Dido - worth £20million - a few times.

He has secretly become close to Martina who has poured out her heart to him about how she rarely got to meet people during her career - and was now revelling in her new-found freedom since quitting the game two years ago.

The pair were introduced by Sol's former team-mate Ramon Vega at an Adidas publicity launch in October.

Afterwards, away from cameras, the pair went to a coffee bar where they chatted intimately. The couple have enjoyed a number of secret dinner dates in London. But they were pictured together at the European launch of the United Nations' Year of Sport at London's Somerset House on December 13.

Martina, who is also an accomplished skier and ice skater, gave an impromptu display of her prowess on the ice rink at Somerset House.

Martina and Sol are goodwill ambassadors for the UN and will be travelling around the world together to attend events. After the launch they were guests at a dinner to mark a tie-up between Britain and Switzerland to encourage friendship and dialogue between the two countries.

The Slovakian-born tennis star, who now works as a TV commentator, bought a house in Zurich last summer and spoke of her love for ex-boyfriend Stefan Egger.

She said she had grown to enjoy her life following her retirement from tennis after an ankle injury in 2002.

Martina became the youngest girl - at the age of 16 in 1997 - to win the Wimbledon singles title.

I think because half of us sorta thought after some comments Martina made in the past, that she might be a lil bit racist... However, this proves that entirely wrong. I never thought she was, but I admit I'm shocked to see she's dating him. If it had been anyone else, I wouldn't have thought anything about it. But the fact it's Hingis... shocks me. Then again, I think she wants a collection of men in every shape, size and color. ;)

It just confuses half the board probably that the same chick that made the comment about Venus and Serena maybe being where they are because of their color (It was in Time Magazine, have the issue somewhere)... makes you think this is a lil bit of interest to see who she's now dating. Then again, maybe this is her and her mother Melanie's play of producing the next big Tennis Star with the best genes :devil:

Just because Martina likes to sleep wth a man who is balck doesn't mean she is not a racist. Her past comments were highly ignorant and one can be ignorant and sleep with a black man.

Martina never made a defamatory remark towards the Williams that I would consider racist. The worst that I can remember was one time when Martina said that it was easier for the Williams Sister to get things their way because they were black and everyone had to be so politically correct. That's the worst she's ever said. Never had she made a negative remark against the Williams that was racists. I defy you to show me instances where she did make such statements.

I would just like to further point out that everyone has their own opinions on what racism is. Personally I don't believe anyone is free of favorable feelings towards one race over another or that anyone is free of all prejudice towards one race. To me, it's the degree of prejudice that matters. A few days ago many people were speaking of Asian people and how they are ignorant and easily manipulatable by white people. Are those racist remarks? Many black people disapproves of marrying out of their own race. Same goes for Asians, same goes for cauasians. Are they all racists? If a person prefers one race over another, is that automatically racism? Are we ever going to live in a colorblind society? No, sorry but that's not going to happen. Martina may have made remarks against the Williams, such as the one I stated above. But I don't thinks she deserves the amount of hatred and criticism that she has received. To me, those remarks are nowhere near the level of prejudice that would make her a racist. People may disagree with me, thats fine. It' s just my own opinion.

barmaid, do u think that the "roots" mentality as you so ignorantly put it is gone for good? The truth of this world is it is still alive and kicking.

Some ignorant people implied that hingis could not possibily be a racist because she is sleeping with a man of color.

Imho Hingis was always in her younger years more ignorant than anything else. She came off as insensitive and just not very educated with other cultures. I am sure she has grown up and matured.
