Former world number one Martina Hingis may not be contemplating a return to WTA singles play, but she got her doubles comeback off to a quick start on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old Swiss great played her first WTA match since 2007 at the Southern California Open, teaming with Slovakian Daniela Hantuchova for a 6-1, 6-1 doubles victory over Germany’s Julia Goerges and Croatian Darija Jurak.

Hingis said: “Not singles, no. It’s a completely different world. Even World Team Tennis now, it’s brutal, it’s only one set but still the next day you wake up, and you have to put so much more effort.”
