Former No. 1 Martina Hingis will coach Germany's Sabine Lisicki at the Australian Open, but is only doing so as a favor to her friend for this tournament. According to the Hingis camp, Hingis has no plans to continue coaching the Wimbledon finalist after the Australian Open, at this point. Lisicki’s camp says that after the tournament is over they will discuss future plans.
