THE LOW DOWN: Hingis to make another return to tennis play (well...sort of)


Hard habit to break: It seems she just can't stay away. Former top-ranked tennis baller Martina Hingis, who famously re-retired after testing positive for cocaine and receiving a 2-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. l 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.
