Jeremy Chardy tells L’Equipe that former No. 1 Martina Hingis was one of the reasons he was able to end 2012 with a career high year-end ranking (of No. 32). Hingis does some coaching for the Patrick Mouratagolu Academy, where Chardy trains.
“Someone who was No. 1 in her profession is necessarily a person who has a different mindset and an ability to understand things,” Chardy said. “I was talking all the time with her tennis. I asked her questions about her training and the doubts we have. Her understanding of the game and strategy is very strong.”
