On Thursday, Hingis posted on Facebook, “Looking back now, it’s hard to believe that almost exactly 23 years ago I made my professional debut. The years that followed have been some of the most rewarding years of my life, both personally and professionally, but I believe the time has come for me to retire, which I will be doing after my last match here in Singapore.”

Hingis won 24 and 25 No. Grand Slam titles at the US Open in September, capturing the women’s doubles and mixed doubles titles. Overall, she won 13 major doubles titles, along with five in singles and seven in mixed doubles.

She held the world No. 1 ranking for 209 weeks during her career, winning 43 WTA singles titles and 64 doubles titles. The Swiss star still is the youngest Grand Slam champion in history, having won the Wimbledon doubles title when she was just 15.
