Martina Hingis marries French show jumper Thibault Hutin

Martina Hingis has married French show jumper Thibault Hutin in a private ceremony in Paris. The wedding was a family affair, but a major white wedding is planned for next summer.

 The ceremony was a small and discrete family affair without the usual trappings we associate with celebrity weddings.  Martina Hingis is no stranger to the sporting press and the media in general. She was the youngest ever tennis player to win a grand slam, a world number one, and she retired from the sport in 2002 at the ripe age of 22. More recently, she made a successful appearance at Wimbledon in 2010 playing in the Invitational Ladies Doubles event together with Anna Kournikova. The appearance of the two players on the seniors’ players list attracted some snide comments about advanced age as they are 10 years younger than the oldest player in the main event.

Martina Hingis is involved in her second sporting career as a show jumper. She took part in quite a few show jumping events around Europe during 2010. During one of these events she met French show jumper Thibault Hutin. Her record in the sport, though, is at best indifferent.

Thibault Hutin is at 24 a future hope for French equestrians with commendable results during the last year. Descended from an affluent family, his name is refreshingly absent from the tabloid pages. This might change now with his marriage to the Swiss Miss who is a regular feature for the yellow press, usually because of her on-off engagements and relationships. Martina Hingis had been engaged twice before, once to Czech player Radek Stepanek until 2007 and as recently as spring 2010 to Swiss lawyer Andreas Bieri. She wisely (show?) jumped the engagement this time in favour of a discrete marriage. Earlier this year she sold her house near Zürich and moved to Paris.
