Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis win mixed doubles crown

Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis win mixed doubles crown

"She's an awesome player and has shown that all this week and I'm really glad I made a decision to play". I was like, Oh, my God, did he read it?

"I hope it's a full crowd and everybody gets involved".

Jamie Murray ensured the family name will be on a Wimbledon trophy for the third time in five years as he and the former world No1 Martina Hingis beat the defending champions Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen of Finland 6-4, 6-4 to win the mixed doubles crown. It's great to be in a grand slam final and I'm really looking forward to it on Sunday.

Murray won his first mixed doubles title 10 years ago when he had partnered with Serbia's Jelena Jankovic. "It's going to take something pretty special to potentially take my eye off the ball with it".

"I forgot what it felt like the last time I won", said the Scot.

Many fans on the Hill had also kept up to date with events at Silverstone, where Lewis Hamilton had earlier won the British Grand Prix for a record-equalling fifth time. Makes it easy for me.

Murray hadn't played mixed doubles since the 2016 French Open, but when Hingis contacted him before Wimbledon, he couldn't resist. I was young, first year playing on the tour. I guess I don't know.

The city was captured by Daesh in June 2014, during their rapid advance into predominantly Sunni northwestern and central Iraq. The oil-rich city fell to Daesh easily as the Iraqi troops avoided clashes and fled its posts, abandoning their weapons.

The 25-year-old Channel Islander reflected afterwards on her first ever loss with Kontinen. It's a great achievement.

He revealed his brother was there. "He said he came down in the middle of the first set". I think he just waited in the lockers.

"He said he didn't watch it. I don't know if he snuck a few points in or not".

The pair, who only got together shortly before the tournament, edged a tight contest, in which they gained advantage from breaking the Watson serve three times.

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.

Jamie said the atmosphere was "a bit strange" given the presence of the two British players. "It worked out... definitely". "Very pleased with how my singles have gone over this whole grass-court season".
