Geez, she was off the radar for an age, and now she's everywhere.

It would be nice to see Hingis playing regular doubles on the tour.

Yeah, I know Fed put out feelers for playing mixed doubles at the Olympics but I don't think Monica fancied it.

She's become the alt-history of the women's tour, hasn't she? Teenage proficiency, out of date by 19, drugs and bans, comebacks and denials of comebacks. Knocking back Roger probably actually prompted her to make a move.

Next thread: Bjorn Borg dusts down his olde wooden racquet...

i hope that they make sure that Hingis is drug free. she has a HX of cheating.

to make matters worse, but to induct her into the HOF just lowers the standards of who are allowed to be inducted now. meaning, if they allow Hingis, they'll allow any drug addict in, murderer or liar.

Kieran.. I thought you were a tennis historian as well as fan.. Have we ever seen a better court technician(WTA) than Hingis. I know that her serve and groundstrokes cant handles the powerful strokes by today's players but if Arani can do maybe Swiss Miss could. Regardless, she is so damn good looking(maybe its just me because I always had a fetish for Swiss Miss and was hoping that I could have made it on the ATP tour so she could "ruin" my career).:snigger

With the pending divorce, I guess she has more time on her hands!!

Hey, sticks and stones.. :snigger..


Her urine sample contained an estimated 42 nanograms per millilitre of benzoylecgonine,[29] less than half the level required for a positive confirmatory test for cocaine in the workplace under US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration guidelines.[30] The International Tennis Federation's report on the matter mentions that "the very low estimated concentration of benzoylecgonine (42 ng/ml) was such that it would go unreported in many drug testing programmes such as that of the US military, which uses a screening threshold of 150 ng/ml."[29] As the amount was so minute, the likely cause was deemed contamination rather than intentional ingestion

She could have gotten this from a bad "kiss" like RG.
If they let Richard Gasquet, why not Hingis..Heart

Bit harsh relating her transgressions to murder.

If she'd have taken Performance Enhancing Drugs I'd agree she shouldn't have gone into the HOF. She took recreational drugs (cocaine), and paid the price. On that basis, I think she still deserves her slot.

The way I see it, that guy wasn't handling his "business." If Hingis has free time on her hands, have her send me a pm, I would be happy to add her as my mixed doubles partner.

Or she may have kissed the same "girl" that Gasquet kissed..:snigger

RE: Hingis Makes Doubles Comeback
I'm glad that she is coming back to play doubles on the WTA tour. I can't wait to see how she handles some of the doubles specialists that are playing today. Here is an idea that gives me goosebumps: if Venus cannot play because of her issues, would Serena consider playing doubles with Martina? They are both associated with Patrick's academy and based on interviews given by Martina, they seem to have a friendly relationship now. Can u imagine the "Swiss Miss" with the "Queen" of tennis playing doubles together at slams?
