A one-time exhibition match. No indication of a return.

Martina could return and just play doubles only and I would still be happy.

As far as I know from Pattaya's tournament director, there will be official announcement on Dec 1 2004 in Bangkok. In the same time Martina will official announce as well.

I'm so happy, Martina will return!!!
Read this:
Former World No 1 Martina Hingis has just as big a heart off court as she had when she was on court during her illustrious tennis career.

Octagon announced today that Martina Hingis has agreed to play in the Volvo Women’s Open WTA Tour event in Pattaya next year to raise funds for a number of Thailand’s leading non-profit organizations, which help women and children in Thailand who have suffered from abuse, deprivation, homelessness and illness. The organizations to be supported by Martina are the Pavena Foundation, The Father Ray Foundation, Foundation for the Better Life of Children and the Suthasinee-Noiin Foundation for Children and Youth.

Martina said that; “While I am in Thailand, I am very much looking forward to spending time with those that benefit from the good work of the Pavena Foundation, The Father Ray Foundation, Foundation for the Better Life of Children and the Suthasinee-Noiin Foundation for Children and Youth. I hope to raise awareness of the support needed for those who are less fortunate and living in impoverished conditions in Thailand and around the world.”

Martina was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for the World Health Organization and during the year 2000 launched their “Match Point Against Polio” campaign. That same year, Martina traveled to Bogota, Colombia in support of the United Nations “Teams to End Poverty” campaign.

Martina has won 76 singles and doubles titles during her tennis career, including 14 Grand Slam titles and achieved many milestones along the way, as being the youngest ever player to reach No 1 in the world at the age of sixteen years and six months. She is also one of only five women players to have been ranked No 1 in singles and doubles at the same time, a feat which she achieved for 35 weeks between June, 1998 – March, 2000.

Martina will be playing her first WTA Tour event since Filderstadt in 2002.

Mr. Chaiyapak Siriwat, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Volvo Women’s Open stated that “We are very excited that Martina has chosen to play in Pattaya for the Pavena Foundation, The Father Ray Foundation, Foundation for the Better Life of Children and the Suthasinee-Noiin Foundation for Children and Youth. These organizations are well-known and have very strong records in assisting deprived women and children in Thailand and we are confident that Martina’s support will help draw attention to their plight, and others in a similar position around the world.”
