Martina Hingis Makes Another Return to Tennis

It seems playing tennis is a hard habit to break for Martina Hingis.  The formerly top-ranked tennis baller, who famously re-retired after testing positive for cocaine and receiving a two-year ban, is returning to the courts.

The Swiss Miss has accepted an invitation to play at the Liverpool International in June, though she could only enter the non-competitive Legends section of the draw.

Martina told the press, "I have heard a lot about Liverpool over the years and all the fine work they have done up there to develop tennis in a region that is mostly famous for football.  I am very much looking forward to playing the event and to seeing what's on offer in the European Capital of Culture." 

The 27-year-old will be joined in the Legends group by fellow retirees Goran Ivanisevic and Pat Cash.
