Martina Hingis will retire after this year’s WTA Finals.

The 25-time major champion, who came out of retirement a second time in 2013, has won four doubles majors and six mixed majors since. She’ll finish her illustrious career with five singles majors, seven mixed majors and 13 doubles major titles to her name. She'll be forever known as one of the greatest tennis legends to ever play.

Hingis won her first major title in 1996 when she won the Wimbledon doubles title as a 15 year old alongside Helena Sukova. The next season she would reach No.1 in singles and become the youngest player to ever win a singles major by claiming the Australian Open title at the age of 16 years and three months.

The 37-year-old currently sits atop the rankings as the WTA’s co No.1 in doubles alongside her partner Chan Yung-Jan. The pair are making their debut at the WTA Finals.


Hingis and Chan have gone 9-0 in finals this year, including their triumph at this year’s U.S. Open, which brought Hingis’ overall title count to 114 (64 doubles, 43 singles, 7 mixed).
