Tennis is a fast evolving game with newer talent competing closely with the top seeds at various events. It is equally difficult to break into the tops slots and maintain the ranking consistently.

#10 Martina Hingis
Martina Hingis from Czechoslovakia took the court by storm from 1994 and has left a blazing trail ever since. Her career highlights are commendable with 45 career titles including 5 Grand Slam Titles (1 US Open, 1 Wimbledon and 3 Australian Open), 13 Grand Slam Doubles titles, 7 Mixed Doubles titles, and 2 Tour Final Titles. She defended her number one ranking in the world for 209 weeks.
Her career prize money amounts to $24,749,074. Unfortunately, she retires early at the age of 22 due to injuries. If not for that, she would have surely been fierce competition to the other players of her time. She made a comeback to Tennis with doubles and mixed doubles and won numerous titles. She finally retired in 2017, winning 3 Grand Slam Doubles titles in her final year of competitive Tennis.
She sure was an inspiration and will always be, to many upcoming players and will always be remembered for her zeal on the court. We hope to see many more such players leaving a deep impression in the Tennis world.
