US Open: Double defeat ends Martina Hingis comeback

Hingis, the 1997 US Open singles champion, helped the Washington Kastles repeat as World TeamTennis champions last month and then joined Hantuchova for WTA tuneup matches ahead of the Open, contributing to her poor ending against the Italians.

New York: Former world number one Martina Hingis, who had her Grand Slam comeback after six years of retirement cut short on Friday with two doubles defeats, is still not planning a return to the singles ranks.

"Give me a break," Hingis said. "No, I haven't given any more thought to it. I have a hard enough time covering half of the court."

The 32-year-old Swiss winner of five Grand Slam singles titles suffered first-round losses in women's doubles and mixed doubles at the US Open.
