09:58 AM ET 07.13 | Martina Hingis, known as the "Swiss Miss" during her tennis playing days when she won five Grand Slam events, should be enjoying a stellar week as she prepares to be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame on Saturday in Newport, R.I. But her estranged husband has put the spotlight on their personal life. Thibault Hutin, a 26-year-old Frenchman who is an equestrian show jumper, says that he knows of at least two times that Hingis, 32, cheated during their marriage, according to the Swiss newspaper SonntagsBlick. Hutin said he expects it's more, calling Hingis a serial cheater. "Martina has a very personal conception of morality," said Hutin, who says he learned that Hingis had announced their separation on Monday when she released a statement to the Swiss magazine Schweizer Illustrierte. "She has always been like that; I think she has always been unfaithful to her boyfriends."

09:38 AM ET 05.22 | When the French Open begins on Sunday in Paris, the men's field will be without the No. 2 player in the world. England's Andy Murray withdrew from the field on Tuesday due to a back injury that forced him to pull out of the Italian Open in the middle of a match. The back condition is reportedly chronic for Murray, and he met with various doctors this week before coming to a decision to skip the second Grand Slam tournament of the year. Murray is the reigning U.S. Open champion after defeating Novak Djokovic in September to claim his first and only grand slam title, but the French Open remains the only tournament in which Murray has not reached the finals. In addition, clay is certainly regarded as his worst surface.

07:05 PM ET 04.01 | The two top Indian doubles players, Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna, are reuniting for one final run. The two competed together during the 2012 season and have decided to join forces on the same side of the court beginning with the Monte Carlo Masters after spending the beginning of the season experimenting with other partners. Bhupati is preparing to call it quits on his career that included four Grand Slams and eight mixed doubles Grand Slams, and he couldn't think of a better way to go out than to compete with an old partner.
