Former No. 1 Martina Hingis has no plans to compete on the WTA tour in 2014, TENNIS.com has learned.

The Swiss came back for the second time in her career last summer to play doubles with Daniela Hantuchova, but the pair failed to get past the second round in any of the five tournaments they entered. Hingis then cancelled plans to play the Asian swing.

The 33-year-old said on numerous occasions last summer that she was unsure as to whether she wanted to re-start a full-time WTA career. She is still considering whether she will play exhibitions in Australia during January.
