Martina Hingis to Tennis Hall of Fame
- 06 March 2013
Former world No.1 in both singles and doubles, Martina Hingis (EZONE Xi, POLYTOUR PRO125) who has won 15 career titles in Grand Slam tournaments, has been elected for enshrinement into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
Martina first signed onto YONEX in 1994, when she was 14 years old. With people praising her as a “genius”, Martina won Wimbledon doubles at 15 years of age in 1995, and the following year, she won the Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open. At the same time, she became the youngest player to achieve World No.1 ranking at 16 years and 6 months old.
"Being inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame is tremendous honour," Martina said. "It is truly a privilege to be part of such an exclusive group of tennis icons.
I am looking forward to the enshrinement weekend in Newport and to being welcomed in by the other Hall of Famers."
