'But I'd love to play with Henri again'.

"She text him and it was an easy decision to play with her".

Top seeded Hingis and Murray, the brother of men's World No 1 Andy, saw off Finland's Kontinen and Britain's Watson. Victory on Sunday would make Wimbledon the second Slam where she has won multiple mixed titles, alongside the Australian Open (2006 and 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. "It's a great achievement", Murray said.

Tennis - Martina Hingis, victor of 5 Grand Slam singles titles, 12 Grand Slam women's doubles titles and 5 Grand Slam mixed doubles titles; says that she is happy to have a chance to provide children with an opportunity to play sports through her association with the Right to Play initiative, a global organisation that uses sport and play to educate children in some of the world's poorest communities. "We have the next Grand Slam coming up [the US Open] and we'll have to talk about that".

"That was pretty nice to just relax and loosen up even if things, like I said earlier, aren't always going the way you want". He said he came, like, in the middle of the first set.

It was left to Murray the elder to do the business once more at the end of the set to break once more, before Murray served it out. 'I think he just waited in the lockers.

With some enterprising wag in the crowd not quite knowing who to support, so shouting out a 'Come On All of You, ' it was at times a bit of a Murrray masterclass, bringing up the first break before Hingis let the side down for Watson and Kontinen to break back straight away. Obviously took me a long time to get a second one.

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.

Hingis said she approached Murray because she knew he was too shy to ask her. Murray jumped at the chance.

On whether they would team up again, Hingis said: 'Now we know what's coming up. 'A odd feeling today, we haven't felt it yet together.
