Last year, the winner of five singles and nine doubles Grand Slam career titles attempted a return with Daniela Hantuchova, but found little success, winning just three of five matches and falling in the first round of the US Open.
Hingis launched a second comeback this season, losing in the first round at Indian Wells, but looked right at home on the Miami hard courts, returning to the winner’s circle at an event she won twice back in 1998 and 1999.
“Two weeks ago, if you asked me, I probably would have had a completely different answer,” Hingis said when asked about her future plans. “Last week, I was like, I’m not sure if I want to put myself out there like this and lose first, second round. Now after this victory, things have definitely changed. I would be very happy to continue to play some more doubles, of course.”
