Hingis & Stepanek to get married

Former world number one Martina Hingis has announced she is to marry Czech tennis player Radek Stepanek.
The 26-year-old Hingis, ranked seven in the world, returned to the women's tour last season after three years out.

The Slovakian-born player, who moved to Switzerland as a child, said that 28-year-old Stepanek had proposed to her in Prague in November.

Stepanek, ranked 19 in the world, has not played since reaching the Wimbledon quarter-finals due to a neck injury.

"I'm happy," said Hingis, who revealed the news after being asked about the diamond ring she is now wearing.

"I was surprised when it was spotted right away (in Australia) because in Switzerland I've been walking around for a month and no-one's said anything."

Hingis is currently in Sydney where she is preparing for next month's Australian Open, which she won three times in a row from 1997 to 1999.

Her first tournament will be the Australian Hardcourt Championships on the Gold Coast.

here is funny quote from Martina on her ring:

Hingis said 28-year-old Stepanek, ranked 19 in the world, had proposed to her in Prague last month but it was not until she arrived in Australia that anyone noticed her diamond ring.

"I was surprised when it was spotted right away because in Switzerland I've been walking around for a month and no-one's said anything," she told reporters.

"I guess people here pay more attention to things."

Facially, I think he's ugly as sin, but I agree that great thighs and a great bum go a long way to righting that wrong! :lick:

Aw! Poor Martina, I thought she liked flirting a maximum of 7 guys per tournament (altho she broke this rule on several occasions :lol: )

No seriously best of luck to you Martina

Glad to see her making a good comeback in her tennis AND her love life. Also happy to see her happy on the court, not taking the beat down like her first career. My best wish goes to Martina and Radek.

well congrats, but it is rather fast I guess. They haven't been together for that long. I guess Stepanek realised he'd never do any better.

Best of luck to them both :)

I hope she deosn't become Martina Stepanek now, keep Hingis, much better name ;)

Also, I guess she needs a new nickname, as she can't be the 'Swiss Miss' anymore :p

Once Martina gets married, her nickname could be something like Madam Swiss or Madame Swiss. sounds a bit stupid, but what nicknames could we have for martina?
