Martina Hingis to retire after WTA Finals

Martina Hingis to retire after WTA Finals

And, following on from reaching the quarter-final of the Swiss Indoors Championship in Basel, the 36-year-old commanded the achievements of Hingis in her career.

Mahesh Bhupathi, who won the 2006 Australian Open mixed doubles title with Hingis, hailed the latter as "the greatest doubles player in our sport".

The Swiss chose to retire after persistent injuries in 2003 hampered her style of play but returned to playing in 2006 and featured mainly in the doubles category but was forced to quit a year later after being tested for cocaine.

Talking to reporters here Friday, Hingis said, "I'll be always part of the game of tennis". "To finish the season on top is a testament to all of the hard work we put in this year". Tennis player from Switzerland in singles has won five titles of Grand slam (3 Australian Open, 1 Wimbledon and 1 US Open).

She also tested positive for a metabolite of cocaine during the 2007 Wimbledon, which led to a two-year suspension from the sport.

She then became the youngest Grand Slam singles victor after capturing the 1997 Australian Open at age 16. I loved playing with her at the Hopman Cup, she was always super friendly, I love that about her. Much of her life was lived in the spotlight and nearly inevitably it included some controversy.

"This isn't a goodbye", Hingis said. Future life remains tied to tennis, I'm nearly impatient to know what she's going to do now.

We wish her the best to come and hope to see her in action again sometime soon.

"Now I get it".

Hingis (37) called time on her career, which spanned three decades, for a third time on Thursday.

Hingis could end her career on a high in Singapore, with a semi-final looming against Timea Babos and Andrea Hlavackova. Since coming out of retirement in 2013, she won 10 of her Grand Slam doubles titles. "The previous times (I retired) I always had things in the back of my head that I might be able to, singles and then doubles, might be able to do that", Hingis said.

There was also a dramatic meltdown during her 1999 French Open final loss against Steffi Graf, which ended with Hingis crying on her mother's shoulder throughout the trophy presentation ceremony.

"Overall I'm very proud of my career, and I wouldn't change anything with anybody".
