KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. - Martina Hingis won her first doubles title in seven years when she and Sabine Lisicki defeated Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina 4-6, 6-4, 10-5 Sunday at the Sony Open.
The doubles title was the 38th for Hingis, a former No. 1 player, but her first since Doha in 2007. The final was the first for the 33-year-old Hingis since she came out of retirement last year to play doubles.
Hingis also won Key Biscayne in 1998 and 1999 with Jana Novotna. She and Lisicki made the tournament as a wild-card entry.
