Sydney:

Martina Hingis has finally found her perfect match. The former world number one is all set to marry Czech tennis player Radek Stepanek, ranked 19 in the world. Hingis, currently in Sydney ahead of next month's Australian Open, said the 28 year old proposed to her in Prague last month. The world No. 7 said she had been wearing a diamond ring since her engagement, but that it was only noticed when she arrived in Australia. Hingis, who has previously been linked with golfer Sergio Garcia and footballer Sol Campbell, returned from a three-year injury lay-off this year and clawed her way back to a season ending rank of seven. There is no word yet on when the wedding will take place. Stepanek, meanwhile, will make his own comeback this month. He reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon this year, but hasn't played since thanks to an injured neck.
