Early Life

Martina Hingis was born on September 30, 1980, in Kosice, Czechoslovakia (now Slovakia), to tennis players Melanie Molitorova and Karol Hingis. Due to her parents playing professionally, Martina got into the sport of tennis at a very young age. But her parents divorced when she was six years old, and her mother defected from Czechoslovakia to Switzerland where Martina acquired Swiss citizenship through naturalization.

At just 12 years old, Hingis became the youngest player to win a Grand Slam junior title when she came away victorious at the girls' singles at the French Open in 1993. The next year, she retained her French Open junior title and won the girls' singles title at Wimbledon and made it to the U.S. Open final.

Tennis Career

Martina Hingins turned pro at just 14 years old. And one year later, she became the youngest Grand Slam champion of all time, eventually turning into one of the top women's tennis players in the world in the late 1990s. As one of the best, she took part of a high-profile doubles team with fellow teen sensation Anna Kournikova. But in 2002, ankle injuries cut her career short, and Hingis announced her retirement in 2003.

However, three years later Hingis made a comeback to professional tennis with her participation in the Australian women's hardcourt championships in January of 2006. Her second retirement came in November of 2007 after testing positive for cocaine at that year's Wimbledon tournament. Hingis denied using drugs but decided not to appeal the imminent ban.

Throughout her career, Martina Hingus won five Grand Slam singles titles (three Australian Opens, one Wimbledon, and one U.S. Open) and spent a total of 209 weeks as world No. 1. Due to her remarkable achievements, she was ranked by Tennis magazine in 2005 as the eighth best female player of the past 40 years, and TIME magazine named Hingis as one of the "30 Legends of Women's Tennis: Past, Present and Future" in 2011.

In 2013, Martina Hingus was elected into the International Tennis Hall of Fame and was appointed the organization's first ever Global Ambassador two years later.
