At a press conference on Thursday, Martina Hingis said that she had been accused of testing positive for cocaine while she was playing at Wimbledon. Although she denies using the drug while at Wimbledon, she has never denied using the drug at other times during her career and her first retirement. Always known as a hard partier, Hingis, never let it seem to affect her game.
Hingis has known of the positive test for some time, but decided to have a press conference when news of the postive test was set to be made public. The 27 year old, Swiss born, Martina Hingis lost in the third round of Wimbledon and hasn't played tennis since September 19th.
During her press conference, Hingis announced her retirement from tennis.
