Born in Košice, Slovakia, Swiss tennis star Martina Hingis is the youngest Grand Slam champion of the 20th Century. In 1996, she won the Wimbledon doubles title with Helena Sukova. A year later at the Australian Open, 16-year-old Martina won again this time earning the Grand Slam singles tournament title, replacing Steffi Graf as the youngest-ever world No. 1.

Since then, Martina remains a powerful force on and off the court. The 12-time Grand Slam doubles champion and holder of 43 World Tennis Association titles garnered a silver medal in doubles at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games. She has been immortalized in wax at London’s famous Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum and in December 2016, Martina joined Right To Play as a global Athlete Ambassador.

“Tennis gave me the opportunity to realize my talents and fulfill my dreams,” says Martina. “I hope that all children will have the chance to develop their potential, which is why I support Right To Play. The global organization uses the transformative power of play and sport to educate and empower children and youth facing adversity.”
