Former World #1, Martina Hingis celebrated returning to the WTA tour for the first time since 2007, with a 6-1, 6-1 doubles victory. The Swiss ace paired up with Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova to defeat Julia Georges and Darija Jurak.
Hingis, who has ruled out returning to singles, has confirmed she will be playing doubles at the US Open, again pairing with Hantuchova.
It’s Martina’s third stint on the WTA Tour. She retired in 2003, returned in 2005, and then retired again in 2007 following a positive test for cocaine use.
