Martina Hingis is back in the spotlight — inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport last week, then featured in an article where her ex-husband said she cheated on him, and now announcing she will return to the WTA Tour in doubles at the Southern California Open in Carlsbad in two weeks time.


Hingis retired from the tour after testing positive for cocaine, but her ban from professional tennis has expired. The former No. 1 singles and doubles player will partner Daniela Hantuchova in California.

“I am very much looking forward to making a return to competitive play at the Southern California Open,” Hingis said. “I remember winning the singles and doubles here in 1997 and winning the singles again in 1999. This has always been one of my favorite events to play. I feel in good shape at the moment after playing World Team Tennis. My competitive spirit is still very much alive and I love being out on court. The tournament at Onmi La Costa Resort & Spa is the perfect place for me to start.”

Hingis played her final three WTA events with Hantuchova in 2007 at Miami, L.A. and the US Open.

Hingis will also be hawking a new line of clothing, “Tonic by Martina Hingis,” which is now conveniently the “Official Clothing Partner of the Southern California Open.”

As Hingis was getting ready to be inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame last weekend, her estranged husband went public with accusations that she cheated on him twice during their marriage.

“A year after the wedding…we were supposed to meet in New York and I wanted to give her a surprise,” the 26-year-old Thibault Hutin, a French equestrian show jumper, told the Swiss newspaper SonntagsBlick. “Upon arriving at the hotel room it was me that was surprised, because Martina was not alone.”

Hutin says they patched things up before he caught her cheating again.

“Martina has a very personal conception of morality,” he said. “She has always been like that; I think she has always been unfaithful to her boyfriends.”

What say you Justin Gimelstob? Radek Stepanek? Ivo Heuberger? Magnus Norman? Sergio Garcia?

All The Best for your upcoming innings………


roy Says:

”tonic”?

i think ”snort” would be catchier. and way edgier of course.

a loose little wifey? how surprising for someone of her character. more evidence for the utter class of the ”glamour” strata of the wta.


Colin Says:

A very personal morality?
Probably down to an exaggerated sense of entitlement instilled by a parent. Not an unfamiliar scenario, is it?


Ty Says:

She has great legs. I approve of her sharing them with a greater volume of the lesser sex (ie – us men)
