The tennis champ, Martina Hingis made a comeback to the game recently. She will play in the doubles match for the U.S. Open.

Planning for the future always carries the risk of too many factors that enter into the equation. But Martina Hingis has dealt with so many situations of playing tennis in her life that she need not worry about this at all. 

It has almost been a decade and a half since she was the world’s #1 player. But even today she displays great grace on the tennis court. She smoothly flows into action and can take on anyone half her age. 

Such all-time favorites as Billie Jean King have lauded her as an ultimate player that happens to be an object lesson in skillful delivery. 

"She's so smart, just the smartest tennis player," Hall of Famer Billie Jean King said. "The way she plays is just so intelligent. She knows how to play and develop a point better than anyone. Watching Martina play is to see a clinic in how to play tennis."

Martina has very high PQ or play quotient. Billie Jean King went on to commend Martina on the execution of her shots. She was the best according to King. And she was smart and sharp in her physical wits. 

"I have a saying: 'selection of shot equals talent,'" King said. "The selection of her shots is amazing. Martina is the epitome of that. And she can execute. Not only can she think where she wants the ball to go, she can actually do it. Some people think right; they just can't execute. Martina can do both.

"What it really comes down to, though, is her tennis intelligence. The way she develops a point shows her intelligence. I can't think of a smarter player, ever."

Currently, Martina Hingis is back on the scene and is appearing on the doubles circuit with the Italian Flavia Pennetta. Even when she won her first competition at the age of 16, Martina showed the beginner’s symptoms of genius. 

"Winning with my teammates, that's the highlight," Hingis said. "Just like anybody, I am motivated by playing well, making good deals and victories, of course. That's my motivation."

She is a tennis maestro and star par excellence alright. Due to an ankle ligament surgery she had to forgo her career for awhile. But now she is back with a vengeance. 

"TeamTennis gave me both the life and the energy to come back to the sport," Hingis said. "When I came back last summer, I wanted to get back the feeling of completion, of winning with a teammate. I just missed that."

There were times when she faced various problems and addictions. She tested positive for cocaine once and was suspended for two years. 

 

And yet this lady with a lot of luck has always been motivated enough to make the journey and forays into her sport of choice and win titles and awards. 

Her friends and family are overjoyed to see her back in action. She will be tearing up the court and giving it her all now. The U.S. Open doubles championships may as well be a launch pad for Hingis who has enough reserves left in her to show all her rivals what she has in the way of talent.
