Tennis champion Martina Hingis questioned by Swiss police for allegedly assaulting husband

Martina Hingis has been questioned by Swiss police after her estranged husband said he was attacked by the five-time Grand Slam champion and her family.

Schwyz canton police spokesman Florian Grossmann says Hingis, her mother Melanie Molitor and her mother's boyfriend Mario Widmer were interviewed at its headquarters last week.

French equestrian athlete Thibault Hutin has said he was attacked on Sept. 23 at his home in Feusisberg. Hutin claimed Hingis and Molitor hit him, and Widmer struck him with a DVD player.

Grossmann tells The Associated Press the canton justice department will decide any possible action. No timetable was set for a decision.

The 33-year-old Hingis came out of retirement this year to play doubles with Daniela Hantuchova at various tournaments, including the U.S. Open.
