Murray, Hingis Win Wimbledon Mixed Doubles

Heather Watson

After the painful end to Andy Murray's title defence, it was left to Jamie to produce the goods and he and Hingis, the No1 seeds, duly clinched victory in 74 minutes. I was like, "Oh, my God, did he read it?" I was hoping for a yes.

Murray said: "I wouldn't have played if Martina hadn't texted me".

"I haven't really played that much in the last couple of years but for me it was a great opportunity to play with Martina", Murray told reporters after their semifinal win.

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.

"But I'd love to play with Henri again, and hopefully before next year".

Like, I knew I could do well with her. For me, it was kind of an easy decision [when she asked]'.

Murray, who won his first title at Wimbledon ten years ago, said: 'I forgot what it felt like the last time I won.

For many top doubles players, it's nearly a bonus, a chance to win some extra cash and take away a major title. He's only a year younger than me. I guess I don't know. Obviously it took me a long time to get a second one. I really enjoyed the whole week.

He revealed his brother was there.

Andy Murray has visited a specialist in Switzerland in an effort to cure the hip problem that hampered him at Wimbledon. "He said he came like in the middle of the first set". I think that's what matters. He said he didn't watch it. Even if I miss a simple ball I'd usually make, or don't put away a volley, he's so supportive, and that makes me feel great for the next point. We have a great time out there. But, having split with Leander Paes, who had helped her win four Grand Slam titles, after a disappointing French Open, 36-year-old Martina Hingis was genuinely concerned that Jamie Murray would say "no" when she called his mobile. 'I'm not used to people saying "no",' she said. "Did he not?' It worked out, definitely".

With regular yells from the crowd cheering on both Watson and Murray, fans threw themselves into the match.

He's played it cool all week but Jamie Murray could afford to let the emotions show as he reached his third Wimbledon final - with a British victor guaranteed either way.
