Martina Hingis is back

Once a sensational tennis player that won many Grand Slam at young age but left the tennis scene 4 years ago due to injury, Martina Hingis is definitely back in action. Her presence is definitely greatly felt. In the first Grand Slam she compete, the Australian Open, she reached the last 8 and finally lost to Kim Clijsters in the Quarter Final. In Toray Pan Pacific Open Tennis Tournament Women’s Singles (carpet) in Japan, she trashed Maria Sharapova in semi final and only lost to Elena Dementieva in the final. What a great comeback. However, to win any title these days is not as easy as she had enjoyed year back. Firstly, she is now older and secondly, there are so many good players these days. In the women scene, you have the Willian Sisters, many good Russian players like Maria and Elena, Justin Henin, Kim Clijsters, Lindsay Davenport, Amelie Mauresmo, Mary Pierce and more.
