Martina Hingis' parents, father Karol and mother Melanie were both good tennis players (amateur) and they introduced Martina to this game. Martina Hingis started playing at the amazing age of 2 and entered first junior tournament at the age of 4. Her talent was more than obvious so it wasn't really surprise when she became No.1 tennis player on March 30, 1997 when she was just 16 years and 6 months old (youngest in history of the game) and she was number one all the way from 1997-2001 dominating women's tennis. Her most successful year was 1997 when she won three out of four Grand Slams (losing only in final of French open to Iva Majoli of Croatia).
Martina Hingis isn't player that dominates the game with strength but with her tactic and precise shots, after all she wasn't named for nothing after legendary Martina Navratilova. After she retired for a while, mainly because of injuries, she turned back to tennis and she easily made her way to top 20 on the Tour, although she isn't as dominant as she used to be before.
Martina Hingis is coached by her mother Melanie and Martina considers her both friend and mother, giving her large credit for her achievements. Her famous line was "What rivalry? I win all the matches" when she was asked about her past rivalry with another tennis beauty Anna Kournikova.
Martina Hingis is beautiful tennis player and cameras love her. Martina also likes horse-riding and she's really all round athlete. Martina is and always will be one of the best female tennis players in history, girl that dominated in the late 90s and she still knows how to play, maybe not that good but still good enough. And she looks good too. Really good.
Here's one very nice Martina Hingis video.
