Organizers of the WTA Mallorca Open, held at the Santa Ponsa Tennis Club from 18 to 25 June 2017, announced Thursday that Martina Hingis will come to the Balearic Island.

The 36-year-old from Switzerland has spent a total of 209 weeks as the singles world No. 1 and has won five major singles titles, twelve Grand Slam women’s doubles titles, winning a calendar-year doubles Grand Slam in 1998, and five Grand Slam mixed doubles titles; for a combined total of twenty-two major titles. In addition, Hingis has captured the season-ending WTA Championships two times in singles and three times in doubles and is an Olympic medalist.

Since 2013 Hingis has only played doubles and will compete in Mallorca alongside her 27-year-old partner Chan Yung-Jan of Taiwan.
