Former top-ranked women’s tennis superstar Martina Hingis is accused of assaulting her estranged husband Thibault Hutin, ripping off his credit cards and swiping his passport.

Hingis and her mom showed up at an apartment Hutin shares with Hingis, according to an online story by Fox Sports, and proceeded to lay a beatdown on him.

The boyfriend of Hingis' mom was also allegedly involved, bashing Hutin in the head with a DVD player. Police were contacted and recovered Hutin's passport and credit cards, which went missing after the violent incident.

Hingis spent 209 weeks as the No. 1 women’s tennis player in the world and has been embroiled in a number of bizarre incidents in the past couple years with her estranged husband. She married Thibault Hutin, a French equestrian show jumper, in December 2010.

A year later, Hutin claimed he walked in on her with another man. Hutin said he forgave her and tried to save the marriage, only to find out Hingis had cheated on him late last year. "Martina has a very personal conception of morality," Hutin said at the time. "She has always been like that; I think she has always been unfaithful to her boyfriends."

Hingis won five Grand Slam singles titles before taking time off in 2002 due to ankle injuries. She returned in 2006 but retired in November 2007 after testing positive for cocaine at Wimbledon.
