The much talked about mega duos of the grand slam season, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal who had win over countless hearts and two grand slam titles this season. But here’s the queen who’s there to win and rule-Martina Hingis!

A legendary sportsperson, Martina Hingis is 10 months senior to Roger Federer and has added two grand slam titles to her name in the span of 24 hours.

Hingis, 34 has sparked the women’s doubles and the mixed doubles at the recently held US Open with a total of 25 grand slams to her name, partnering with Taiwan’s Chan Yung-Jan to win the women’s doubles title and Briton Jamie Murray to grab the mixed doubles tournament.

For Hingis is was a “wonderful journey” recalling her past performance in her first US Opens singles, wining it against Venus Williams- some two decades ago.

Hingis started her career when she was 14 years old with her WTA Tour and ever since there’s no looking back.

With an interview with CNN Hingis expressed, “I’ve always loved to play tennis, This is what I do best; this it what I know; this is my education since I was two years old.”

It’s amazing to learn that Hingis became the undisputed world No.1 when she was only 16 and retained her position as such for a total of 209 weeks. That’s really too much achievement at such an early age!

“In my case I definitely wouldn’t want to change what I went through with anyone,” says Hingis. “It’s a lot cooler than having to go to school.”
“I did education until I was 14 when I turned pro and then some later on as well, but I think this is the best education you can get.
“My mom always made sure that when we traveled to different cities and countries that we also took something from there to learn about.”
But then a series of ankle injuries forced Hingis to retire at age of 22. Hingis return to play at the ATP Tour in the year 2006 during Australian Open playing for the mixed doubles with India’s Mahesh Bhupathi.
