That scared me! I thought she died! I had to get all the way to the "and has to stop..." before I realized she wasn't dead.

Martina Hingis got married:

Aw, congrats! Cute, Jewish looking guy (but, probably isn't).
Wow, she traded up from the guy she was engaged to a few months ago. I'm kind've confused, though. Maybe this guy was an ex, then they reconnected after she broke up with the Swiss lawyer guy?
Sigh, if Martina would've just held on, Vaidesova would've been out of luck, and Martina would have been Mrs. Sexy Worm for a few years now ... maybe have cute little worms by now. :P

Apparently the guy is only 24...get on with your bad cougar self, Martina! ;)

Congrats to Martina H. and get well soon Martina N.!
The 'Worst luck of 2010' award goes to Robby Ginepri who first broke his arm in November and now had a car accident trying to avoid running over a squirrel (http://www.tennis.com/articles/templates/ticker.aspx?articleid=9344&zoneid=6). :drama:

Thanks for that link Megi. Lots of interesting stuff there to read.
Ginepri would have had to play the qualifying in Australia due to his poor ranking anyways. At this point Ginepri should probably retire. He never learned the discipline needed to succeed at the top levels in tennis.
I found the 2nd story very interesting. Mary Carillo will no longer be announcing for ESPN. She asked out of the last year of her contract and ESPN obliged. Carillo will still be busy though working for both NBC and CBS this year.
