In Third Retirement, Martina Hingis Cedes Her Doubles Kingdom

Heinz Günthardt, Martina Hingis’s Swiss Fed Cup captain, said he believed she was capable of playing on tour until she was 50 years old. She made it to 37, and though two previous Hingis retirements turned out to be sabbaticals, this one seems like the real deal. “You want to stop on top and not when you’re already going backward,” she said in Singapore before playing her final match, a loss in the semifinals of the doubles tournament at the WTA Finals on Saturday.
