Kournikova and Hingis set for Wimbledon event
Wednesday 05 May 2010
The agency that represents Anna Kournikova and Martina Hingis says the pair is teaming up again at Wimbledon.
After long absences from tennis, Kournikova and Hingis will play together in the legends' doubles event at the All England Club this year, the Octagon agency said yesterday.
Five-time major champion Hingis, 29, retired for the second time in 2007, when she was given a two-year suspension for testing positive for cocaine after a match at Wimbledon. She denied taking the drug but did not appeal the ban, which ended on September 30, 2009.
The 28-year-old Kournikova hasn't been a regular on tour since 2003. She was a Wimbledon semi-finalist in 1997.
They won two Grand Slam doubles titles together, at the Australian Open in 1999 and 2002.
