Murray/Hingis Win Second Straight Mixed Doubles Title
Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis capped a dominant mixed doubles campaign in 2017, improving to 10-0 together with their second title in a row on Sunday at the US Open. The British-Swiss duo defeated Michael Venus and Hao-Ching Chan 6-1, 4-6, 10/8 in a tight Match Tie-break.
Murray notched his third mixed doubles title in total, adding to his maiden triumph at Wimbledon in 2007 (w/Jankovic). He is the first British man to win the US Open mixed doubles title since Peter Curtis in 1968 (w/Eisel).
"We had a great run," Murray said. "We played a great tie-break and the crowd was really into it. There was a lot of noise. Some crazy rallies going on. For us, it's so much fun to go there and play in a huge stadium, with a lot of people coming out to watch.
"It's been a lot of fun for me. A great opportunity for me to compete with Martina. She's such a great player and a huge champion of the game. It's been a lot of fun. Every time we are on court, we get a lot of people coming out to watch us, a lot of people supporting us. It makes it fun to play. Like I said before, that's what we enjoy most about playing tennis, playing in front of a lot of people. That's where the enjoyment is, trying to put on a good show and play good tennis."
