SINGAPORE - Martina Hingis played the final match of her career Saturday when she and Chan Yung-Jan lost in the semifinal doubles to Timea Babos and Andrea Hlavackova 6-4, 7-6 (5) at the WTA Finals.

Hingis and Chan won nine titles this season, including the US Open trophy.

''I think it's been an amazing journey and amazing career that I can be proud of,'' said 37-year-old Hingis, who announced Thursday she was retiring at the end of the tournament. ''It's not really goodbye. I hope I'll still be part of the game.''
