Martina’s back!! January 15, 2006

Posted by ayasawada in Sport.

A good sign at last. Last month the rumours proved true and former World Number 1 (fellow Libran and my favourite tennis player ever) Martina Hingis is making a comeback in the tennis world. I’m not sure how she’ll do, given the advancement of power and pace in the women’s game since her retirement three years ago. So far she’s done better than expected (making the quarters of one event, but losing heavily to the likes of Justine Henin-Hardenne). But it’s like fond memories coming back to life and promising the good times once again. Tomorrow Martina takes a wildcard entry into the Australian Open, scene of her first ever grand-slam triumph at the age of 15. The Swiss Miss is ready to roll and I might yet fulfill my ambition of seeing Martina play live.
