Martina Hingis won in her return to competitive tennis Monday, beating Venezuela's Maria Vento-Kabchi 6-2, 6-1 in a first-round match at the Australian women's hardcourt championships. The 25-year-old Hingis, who won five Grand Slam singles titles before retiring in 2002 because of ankle, heel and foot injuries, started tentatively as both players exchanged service breaks.
