Tennis - Former world no. 1 Martina Hingis will be back to play singles in Adelaide - though only for a exhibition legends match against former Australian pro Nicole Bradtke at the 2014 World Tennis Challenge to be held 7-9 January at Memorial Drive Tennis Centre.

The site holds an ATP event which will include Frenchman Jeremy Chardy, Austrian veteran Jürgen Melzer, Spain's Feliciano Lopez and 17-year-old Aussie teen Thanasi Kokkinakis. Hingis commented on the announcement, "I am really looking forward to my return to Adelaide.

Australians love their sport and Adelaide is a great place for me to come and spend a few days." The event will also hold a men's legends event which will see Mats Wilander, Yannick Noah, Pat Cash, Henri Leconte and Mansour Bahrami participate.
