About a year from today attention will be focused on the 2012 Olympics in London. For tennis fans, that means a special occasion as the tennis will be played on grass at Wimbledon. A report out today makes for some interesting possibilities as Roger Federer (or someone thru his team) asked Martina Hingis to pair up for mixed doubles at next year’s Olympics. Ten years ago the duo played mixed doubles and won the Hopman Cup for Switzerland.
Hingis has set many youngest-ever records in tennis and dominated as a teenager before being forced to retire due to ankle and ligament related injuries. She won five singles grand slams, nine doubles grand slams, and one mixed grand slam in her playing career (in addition to holding the #1 ranking for 209 weeks).
There is a year to go and much to be seen from Martina as she herself has stated the level of commitment and playing at the highest level will be something she needs time to consider.
