Martina Hingis says she will continue playing limited doubles schedule in 2015

Tennis - Former World No. 1 Martina Hingis has said that she will continue playing doubles in 2015, but plans to play a limited schedule rather than a full-time schedule. Hingis enjoyed her best Grand Slam result in her comeback as she reached the women's doubles final at the US Open with partner Flavia Pennetta.

Speaking to the press following their loss in the final in New York, Hingis said that she plans to play the "selected, smarter, good ones, and the tournaments where you feel good. Today I do not have a point to prove to anybody.

But definitely there are so many great tournaments still to play in this year. This season is not over yet. And then, there is next year. I'm already looking forward to it." Hingis and Pennetta will not play next week's WTA event in Tokyo but they do plan on playing in the Wuhan and Beijing events.

The Swiss Miss has climbed to No. 20 in the latest WTA doubles rankings, her best ranking since her comeback as well. Hingis will play in Tokyo with fellow Swiss Belinda Bencic, who has a close associaiton with her family. 17-year-old Bencic, who became the youngest US Open quarter-finalist at the US Open last week since Hingis herself, is coached by HIngis' mother and has often practiced with HIngis over the past decade.
