Martina Hingis and Sabine Lisicki won it big time at the Miami Doubles. She and her partner are tops in matters of tennis.

It’s been seven years. In 2007, Martina Hingis won the debut title of her tennis career. Today after teaming up with Germany’s Lisicki, she has totaled the Sony Open Doubles. Their opponents, a Russian pair were soundly defeated. 

Martina Hingis retired after her victory in Doha, Qatar in 2007. But now she is back and nobody can defeat her. Just for the record, she has been the champion of five Grand Slam trophies and over nine doubles titles. Hingis has remarked that the whole process of playing the game and winning it was quite exciting indeed. 

When she made a surprising comeback in 2013, she won three out of the five matches. Hingis and Lisicki won in Miami after having suffered defeat in the match before this one in Florida. Thus they avenged their slide into the loser’s arena. 

Martina Hingis and her German partner are both known as the wild card team. Via the Swiss miss’s victory this time around, Hingis has moved to the 60th position while Lisicki has gone to the 36th. 

After the Russian upset, Hingis has completely revamped her plans for the future. Not only does she want to play the game but she is looking forward to many winning combinations. Martina still has a lot of spunk left in her and it will see her through. She has the winning streak and has reportedly said that she is all set to conquer. 

Just a few weeks ago she would not have been so positive about this challenge. But now all that has changed. The victory has made her super-confident. And as far as her luck is concerned, it may have more to do with her energy and skills than with any law of chance.  

According to BBC, when Hingis was asked if she planned to continue her doubles comeback, she said: "Two weeks ago if you asked me, it probably would be a completely different answer from today. Last week, I was not sure if I want to put myself out there like this and lose first, second round. Now, after this victory, definitely things change. I would be very happy to continue to play some more doubles."
