Tennis Channel analyst Lindsay Davenport, who won the Wimbledon Ladies' Invitation doubles with Martina Hingis earlier this month, says Hingis is planning a full-fledged singles return this fall.

Davenport says that the Swiss’ decision to play five WTA doubles tournaments this summer — at least two with Daniela Hantuchova, including the U.S. Open — is "just a way to get her feet wet" before coming back in singles again.

It would be the 32-year-old Hingis' second comeback in singles. Another Tennis Channel analyst, Rennae Staubbs, said much the same on the NCR tennis radio podcast.

But Hingis’ camp denied anything was imminent, with a source telling TENNIS.com that at this point, anything having to do with her return in singles is “pure and total speculation.”
