Former No. 1 tennis star Martina Hingis allegedly cheated on her estranged husband, stole his passport and credit cards, attempted to sabotage his car, and assaulted him in a violent altercation, he told a German newspaper this week.

Hingis and Thibault Hutin, both 32, are reportedly in the process of getting a divorce, but Hutin claims Hingis has repeatedly tried to harm him recently. First, he caught her cheating on him twice over the summer after only one year of marriage. Then on Friday, he suspects she tried to dismantle his car.

"Someone had tried to tamper with the engine," Hutin told German newspaper Blick earlier this week. "Because besides me only Martina has a key to the garage. For me there is only one possible culprit: Martina."

Hutin, a French showjumper, also accused the tennis star of stealing his credit cards and passports. And perhaps worst of all, he says Hingis and her mother attacked him at the couple's shared apartment in Switzerland on Monday night.

"In the course of a dispute, Martina and her mother Melanie Molitor pounced on me, beat me, and scratched. My upbringing forbids me to beat women," Hutin told Blick. "I resisted every effort, but Mario Widmer, the partner of Melanie, struck me in the head with a DVD player.

"First she cheat[ed] on me, then they tried to break my car. Now she is physically up to me and stealing my valuables," said Hutin. "They wanted to kill me. I’m shocked! I never thought it would go so far."

Hutin has since moved to a hotel, according to Bleacher Report.

Hingis and her family have reportedly denied all of Hutin's claims, according to tennis journalist Matt Cronin.

Hingis, an International Tennis Hall of Fame inductee, won five Grand Slam singles and nine Grand Slam doubles titles over the course of her career. She announced her retirement in 2007, but has launched many comebacks since. She and Lindsay Davenport won the Ladies' Invitation Doubles for the third year in a row at Wimbledon 2013.
