Wimbledon 2017: Martina Hingis-Jamie Murray win mixed doubles title

Heather Watson Henri Kontinen Wimbledon

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.

"I was a little bit scared he would say no", admitted Hingis, who has helped Murray reach today's Wimbledon mixed doubles final, which is a "Battle of Britain" against defending champions Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen.

Murray won the mixed title 10 years ago with Serbian player Jelena Jankovic.

Murray's win followed other British success at the championships: Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid were victorious in the men's wheelchair doubles, while Jordanne Whiley, partnered by the Japanese Yui Kamiji, won the women's wheelchair doubles for the fourth successive time. "It's going to take something pretty special to kind of maybe, potentially take my eye off the ball with it".

White House announces new theme weeks
The president plans to issue a declaration Wednesday and deliver remarks on the importance of making things in the United States. Sounds like the Trump Administration is looking to play games with the American people once again.


The win comes 20 years after Hingis won her first title at Wimbledon but as a lanky player from Switzerland laced with the consistency in her groundstrokes and in sharp contrast to the power game that the fans are accustomed to seeing now.

"But because it's far away, because of what happened previous year, I just like to take the opportunity to thank the people in the very moment, and make them understand, yes, I hope that I'm back". After Hingis held to love, the pair saved three break points to serve out for the title.

The pairs exchanged breaks in the opening set before Murray and Hingis edged ahead. But it was a great opportunity. She's won everything, won so many mixed as well. I knew I could do well with her.

And after brother Andy's disappointing quarter-final exit to Sam Querrey, this triumph at least means that the Murray family name will be on a Wimbledon trophy for the third time in just five years. "But I think Federer [gave me the] push me to play tennis". Murray and Hingis have yet to discuss future plans but it seems likely they will defend their title next summer and they may even play together in the US Open later this summer.
