The WTA has been mostly quiet regarding the doping allegations being made against Martina Hingis - and now the organization explains why:
WTA Tour president Stacy Allaster said Sunday that the women’s tour will only get involved after doping authorities hand over a report on the case.
“We let that process happen independently and then, depending on the findings of the tennis anti-doping committee, we’ll be there to support Martina,” Allaster told The Associated Press at the Sony Ericsson Championships.
Hingis made a surprise appearance over the weekend at the season-ending event, which the five-time Grand Slam champion won twice.
“I personally haven’t seen her, but she’s part of our tennis family, and I’m glad she joined us here,” Allaster said. “Martina was a great champion, a very accomplished athlete. Our sport has been very fortunate to have had Ms. Hingis.” SI
There is other news regarding Hingis also - Roger Federer is throwing his support behind her. I’ll be adding this in another post.
