Return to Greatness?

One of the greatest tennis players of the past ten years is planning a return to the sport.

After quitting in 2002 while facing numerous injuries, Martina Hingis became sorely missed in women’s tennis.

Hingis, who turned pro in her teens, is making a return at the age of 25. She is not close to being considered past her prime age for tennis. She is expected that, once she regains her competitive form, she will retake her place among the best female tennis players in the world.

She is making her return at the Mondial Australian Women’s Hardcourts tournament. She will begin her first tournament on January 1, a fitting start to a new year.

Here’s hoping that Hingis makes the world of women’s tennis even more exciting than it currently is.

With the probable return of Monica Seles in 2006 the Women's Tennis Association is on the brink of even greater success.
