This may already have been posted, but there was a decent balanced article on Martina, avoiding the more salacious aspects of recent events.

It's a fair article and actually shows Hingis some respect while at the same time not sugarcoating anything about her and her career. I really like the final line:

The circumstances of her final retirement are not disgraceful or scandalous. If she took cocaine, she would have played worse, not better. But there is sadness that she has gone, sadness for the game that she illuminated.
