Mixed doubles final: Murray/Hingis bt Kontinen/Watson - Centre Court

Mixed doubles final: Murray/Hingis bt Kontinen/Watson - Centre Court

Murray wasn't planning to play mixed doubles at Wimbledon this year, but Martina is a hard woman to say no to.

The youngest victor was Martina Hingis, who led the Ladies' Doubles Championship in 1996 at 15 years. He said he didn't watch it.

Hingis said: "It was just like, Hi, Jamie, want to play with me (laughter)?" It was just a great opportunity for me to play and to really feel like you could do good things on the court and have a great shot to win.

'It was a great opportunity for me to have a great shot to win, ' said Murray.

"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.

It is also 20 years since Hingis edged past Jana Novotna to win her singles title on Centre Court, and the Swiss now has six major mixed doubles triumphs to add to her 12 in women's doubles and five in singles.

But Rossi said the comeback the team made since struggling in Friday practice was the most encouraging part of the weekend. Meanwhile from 11th and 16th, Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay needed some help to make it up the order on Sunday.

"I mean, the (men's) doubles for me is obviously my biggest goal of the year".

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.

Depending on the stage of a player's career, though, mixed doubles can be more than just the chance to top up the bank balance.

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. For me, it was kind of an easy decision [when she asked]'. After Hingis held to love, the pair saved three break points to serve out for the title.

The holders improved in the second set, and began to do some damage on Murray's serve. And they were rewarded with a match full of power, angles, deft volleys and outstanding movement around the net, especially from Murray, whose net skills left the crowd gasping at times. 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.
