Martina Hingis, one of the best women’s tennis players over the last 30 years, is a “serial adulterer” her estranged husband told a Swiss newspaper this week. Hingis, 32, captured five Grand Slam titles in the 90s, including winning the Australian Open three times. In December 2010, she married Thibault Hutin, a Frenchman who is six years her junior. One year into the marriage, he “surprised” her in New York, only to find her in bed with another man.
From the London Evening Standard:
“A year after the wedding […] we were supposed to meet in New York and I wanted to giver her a surprise.
“Upon arriving at the hotel room it was me that was surprised, because Martina was not alone.”
Hutin said he tried to salvage the marriage but “late last year I found out that she had cheated on me again”.
He said: “Martina has a very personal conception of morality. She has always been like that; I think she has always been unfaithful to her boyfriends.”
It gets worse for Hutin: Even after Hingis wife cheated on him twice, he didn’t even know they had broken up until she mentioned it to the press. Then, Hutin saw his wife on TV at the French Open this year with another man (whom she is dating).
This weekend in Rhode Island, Hingis will enter the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
