NEW YORK (AP) — Martina Hingis closed out the first match in her return to Grand Slam tennis with back-to-back double faults in a 6-3, 7-5 doubles loss to top-seeded Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci at the U. S. Open.

Hingis, who was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame last month, was partnered with Daniela Hantuchova on Friday for her first appearance at a major since retiring in 2007.

Trailing 6-5 in the second set, Hingis served three double faults, including the last two of the match. Moments later, she sat down and buried her face in her towel.

The 32-year-old Hingis won five major singles titles and nine more in women's doubles from 1996-2002.

She had a mixed doubles match with partner Mahesh Bhupathi scheduled for later Friday.
