Jamie Murray Martina Hingis win Wimbledon mixed-doubles title

Murray was playing with Martina Hingis, and they won 6-4, 6-4 against Watson and her Finnish partner, Henri Kontinen.

In a battle against fellow Brit Heather Watson and her partner Henri Kontinen, it was Murray who came out on top, the doubles expert helping secure a 6-4 6-4 victory.

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.

"I mean, the doubles for me is obviously my biggest goal of the year".

Hingis, who won five Grand Slam singles titles between 1997 and 1999, has won five major mixed doubles titles, four of them since the beginning of 2015.

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. I'm not used to no! 'I don't take no for an answer.

Kontinen and Watson had two chances to break the Murray serve at 3-2 up in the second set but could not take them.

Murray was the star of the show and he earned the first break with a dart across the net, but a poor game from Hingis allowed Watson and Kontinen instantly to hit back.

They had to work for the title - saving three break points as they looked to serve it out, before Murray finished it off on his serve. Just different. Like it's ten years later.

Watson said: "I think that I missed a few too many returns today".

A stinging Hingis return set up two break points, and she and Murray converted the second when Watson chipped a short ball into the net.

Andy, 30, now boast two sets of SW19 silverware after Jamie won the mixed doubles trophy for the first time 10 years ago. But it was a great opportunity. "When she texted me, it was an easy decision to play, she's such a great player".

"It was a unusual feeling today, we haven't felt it yet together".
