Five-time Grand Slam singles champion Martina Hingis was questioned by Swiss police last week for allegedly attacking her estranged husband, according to a police spokesman on Wednesday via the Associated Press.

The husband, French equestrian athlete Thibault Hutin, said he was attacked on Sept. 23 at his home in the Swiss municipality of Feusisberg by Hingis; her mother, Melanie Molitor; and her mother’s boyfriend, Mario Widmer. Hutin claims that the 33-year-old Hingis and her mother hit him, and her mother’s boyfriend struck him with a DVD player.

Hingis and Hutin married in December 2010 but split this past July. That same month, Hingis announced that she was coming out of retirement to play doubles at the Southern California Open and other tournaments, including the U.S. Open in New York later that summer.

Swiss police reportedly have no timetable for a decision on the investigation.

Ever since that Gunther Parche stabbing incident, Hingis has had a difficult go of things.  I hope she is OK.
