MONTREAL Aug 11 Former women's world number one
Martina Hingis and Czech Radek Stepanek, the highest profile
couple in tennis, have broken off their engagement.
A spokesman for the ATP said on Saturday: "Radek asked me to
pass on a message announcing that he and Martina Hingis have
split up, they will remain good friends."
The pair became engaged last November when Stepanek proposed
to Hingis in Prague.
Stepanek was beaten 7-6 6-2 by world number one Roger
Federer in the semi-finals of the Montreal Masters on Saturday.
