Hingis-Murray double up for title

The top-seeded partnership, which won their first tournament together at Wimbledon in July, pushed their team record to an unblemished 10-0 with the win over the number three seed.

It was the 24th singles or doubles Grand Slam title for Hingis, who has a shot at a 25th when she partners Chan Yung-jan in the women's doubles final at Flushing Meadow on Sunday (Monday NZ Time).

Martina Hingis, of Switzerland, left, returns a shot as doubles partner Chan Yung-Jan, of Taiwan, looks on during the doubles semifinals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament against Sania Mirza, of India, and Peng Shuai, of China, Friday, Sept. 8, 2017, in NY.

The 36-year-old's achievement is made all the more remarkable by the 13-year gap between her 2002 Australian Open doubles title and her next at Wimbledon in 2015.

Murray said he had enjoyed every minute of his time on court with Hingis.


"He texted me and said well done", he told reporters. At the time, she denied taking the drug but did not appeal the ruling.

"I did play a lot of mixed doubles when I first started playing and had a lot of success".

Hingis and Chan, formed this year after Chan parted ways with her longtime partner and sister Chan Hao-Ching, have dominated the circuit since forming and the second-seeded pairing did not drop a set in their six victories.

It was the first grand slam title for Chan but the second in as many days for Hingis, who won the mixed doubles with Britain's Jamie Murray on Saturday.

She returned to the tennis tour in recent years as a coach before starting to play again. "It's been a lot of fun for me and a great opportunity for me to compete with Martina", he said.
