The Mutua Madrid Open  have announced the wild cards for the upcoming tournament, which takes place in the first week of May in Madrid. Leading the pack is former world No. 1 Martina Hingis, who received a wildcard to enter the event with German partner Sabine Lisicki.

Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut and Pablo Carreno Busta and Romania’s Marius Copil have gotten wildcards into the men’s singles draw.

Spanish women Anabel Medina Garrigues, Silvia Soler-Espinosa, Lara Arruabarrena and Tita Torro get wildcards into the women’s singles draw along with Romania’s Irina-Camelia Begu.

Hingis wins her first title since 2007 in the Sony Open doubles with Sabine Lisicki. The event was Hingis and Lisicki’s second tournament together, after they lost in the first round at Indian Wells, and the pair saved seven match points in their quarter-final against Anabel Medina Garrigues and Yaroslava Shvedova en route to Hingis’  38th WTA doubles title.

The Mutua Madrid Open takes place between May 3-11 in madrid, Spain.

    Looking forward to seeing the Hingis/Lisicki doubles team in action. Martina’s career has been rocky but she’s back . . . and winning!?
