Hingis back in major doubles semifinal for 1st time since 2002, wins at US Open with Pennetta

  • Print

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Martina Hingis is back in a Grand Slam doubles semifinal for the first time since 2002.

Hingis and Flavia Pennetta beat fifth-seeded Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik 6-4, 6-3 on Tuesday at the U.S. Open. The 33-year-old Hingis returned from her latest retirement to play doubles last year, but she lost in the first round of the 2013 U.S. Open with Daniela Hantuchova and this summer's Wimbledon with Vera Zvonareva.

She and Pennetta had played in three tournaments together leading up to the U.S. Open.

Pennetta is also still alive in singles. The 11th-seeded Italian faces No. 1 Serena Williams in the quarterfinals Wednesday.

Hingis has won nine major doubles championships to go along with her five Grand Slam singles titles. Her protege didn't fare as well Tuesday: 17-year-old Belinda Bencic lost to Peng Shuai in straight sets in a singles quarterfinal.

Peschke and Srebotnik won Wimbledon in 2011.
