Martina Hingis has signed up to join Richard Krajicek at the pre-Wimbledon Nottingham Masters exhibition event, to be held at the Nottingham Tennis Centre June 10 to 13. The event was organized to replace the ATP tournament which was moved to Eastbourne in 2009.
Hingis, who retired late in 2007 for a second time after being found guilty of a doping offense, has only in recent months been free to compete again, and she has also signed up to compete in the World TeamTennis league for the New York Buzz as the lone star name in a team that also consists of Sarah Borwell, Alex Dimijan and Scoville Jenkins.
Krajicek, who also attempted a comeback after retiring in 2003, has remained very active in tennis, taking on the role of tournament director for the ABN Amro event in Rotterdam and setting up the Richard Krajicek Foundation, which is involved in building sports facilities for children in inner cities in his native Netherlands.
