Martina Hingis to serve as Grand Resort Bad Ragaz ambassador
Martina Hingis began frequenting the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz during her time playing competitive tennis – and now, as an official ambassador of Europe’s Leading Wellbeing & Medical Health Resort, the former tennis world champion will be spending even more time in Bad Ragaz than before.
During her youth, Martina Hingis trained with her mother, Melanie Molitor, at the Bad Ragaz Tennis Centre and also explored the Heidiland holiday region on horseback before stepping onto the international stage at age 17. During her illustrious career, the “ever-smiling Swiss Miss” found time in between winning her 25 Grand Slam titles to frequently return to the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz. That is why she finds it easy to slip into her new role as an ambassador of the Leading Wellbeing & Medical Health Resort in Europe. “I can always find my inner balance here straight away,” she said, smiling. “It’s because the professional yet welcoming team makes me feel truly at home every time I visit.”
After tennis, horse riding has always been Martina Hingis’ second greatest passion. A passion that she now wants to pursue in the Heidiland holiday region of Eastern Switzerland. She is planning to construct eight horse stalls on her property in Bad Ragaz. Together with her partner, sports physician Harry Leemann, she is shifting her focus towards sports, health and medicine. The expertise that the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz has to offer in all of these areas is extremely important to her.
“In Martina Hingis we have found an ambassador and athlete who is the perfect fit for us as a Wellbeing & Medical Health Resort, and whose down-to-earth, authentic personality, endurance and vision we greatly admire,” says Patrick Vogler, CEO of the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz.
