ABOUT MARTINA HINGIS:

Martina is the winner of two US Open Grand Slams titles, 2015. These are four in mixed doubles in total and eleven in women doubles). It is a historic win with both mix and doubles in Wimbledon and US open in the same year. In 2015, Martina also became the first Global Ambassador for the International Tennis Hall of Fame."

Martina was born in Kosice, Slovakia. Brought up in Switzerland, she began playing tennis at an early age and made her professional debut just after turning 14. She was 15 years and nine months old when she won the 1996 Wimbledon doubles title with Helena Sukova, making her the youngest Grand Slam champion of all time. The following year, she became the youngest singles Grand Slam tournament winner of the 20th century after her victory in the Australian Open, and the youngest-ever world No. 1 when she replaced the injured Steffi Graf.

Martina went on to win the Wimbledon and U.S. Open singles championships that year, and defended her Australian singles crown in 1998 and 1999. She also starred in doubles, notching four championships at the Australian Open, two at the French Open and Wimbledon, and one at the U.S. Open. Altogether, she spent 209 weeks in the top spot of the WTA rankings.

Injuries forced her retirement in 2003, but she returned to competitive tennis at the start of 2006 and won the Australian Open mixed doubles title (with Mahesh Bhupathi of India) and the Italian Open. She received the Laureus World Sports award for comeback of the year in 2006.

After retiring again in 2007, Hingis returned to professional competition once again in 2013, this time strictly as a doubles player. She won the 2014 Miami Open alongside Sabine Lisicki, and reached the final of the U.S. Open that year with Flavia Pennetta. In early 2015, she teamed with Leander Paes to claim the mixed doubles championship at the Australian Open.

The Swiss star returned to tennis in recent years as a coach and now is back playing, perhaps with an eye to competing at next year's Rio Olympics.

Already a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame on the merits of her "first" career in the sport, Martina teamed with Sania Mirza of India to win the Wimbledon women's doubles final at the All England Club in July this year. She went to capture a double after partnering India's Leander Paes to mixed doubles success.

Martina Hingis and Leander Paes have continued along their winnings ways, picking up their third Grand Slam title of the year with victory in the mixed doubles final of the US Open 2015.
