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.
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.
