Hingis and Murray take mixed doubles title

Hingis and Murray take mixed doubles title

The 31-year-old said: "The first time, it was the first time I ever played mixed doubles".

Murray's 2007 win, alongside Serbia's Jelena Jankovic, kick-started his doubles career and in turn helped to elevate him above being known as "Andy Murray's brother". He said he didn't watch it.

"I find Henri so enjoyable to play with". But it was a great opportunity.

Martina Hingis clinched her 23th Grand Slam title as the Swiss star and Scottish partner Jamie Murray beat Henri Kontinen and Heather Watson 6-4, 6-4 in the Wimbledon mixed doubles final on Sunday.

Roger Federer will surely dominate the Wimbledon headlines Sunday as he chases an Open Era men's record eighth singles title but it should not be forgotten that after the main course, there's also dessert to enjoy, in the form of the mixed doubles final.

For Guernsey-born Watson, meanwhile, this was another strong run with Finland's Kontinen, backing up her progress to the third round of the singles last week where she was beaten in three sets by Victoria Azarenka.

He and Hingis were the number one seeds and victory was consolation for Murray after he and partner Bruno Soares went out in the second round of the men's doubles.

"I approached Jamie because he is a very nice guy and everybody knew I had been..." "It's going to take something pretty special to potentially take my eye off the ball with it".

Understandably, Federer's latest success in SW19 dominated the final day of the tournament, but there was also a moment back in the spotlight for the only player who has more singles crowns at Wimbledon - Martina Navratilova. "When she texted me, it was an easy decision to play, she's such a great player".

"You talked about how one British player was going to win Wimbledon this year and I hoped it was going to be mine". They earned five break points in the set but Watson couldn't capitalize, often being flummoxed by the Scot's swinging left-handed delivery.

The second set was close until the seventh game when Watson's serve came under pressure.

And while Hingis refused to confirm whether they would play together again, she admitted it had been an enjoyable partnership.
