Murray, Hingis win mixed doubles title

Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis

She will be trying to win a 25th Grand Slam title here on Sunday in the women's doubles final alongside Taiwan's Yung-Jan Chan, against the Czech Republic's Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova.

Martina Hingis and Jamie Murray have been the ideal partnership.

"It was an fantastic feeling to play here in the singles final", Hingis said of her 1997 Arthur Ashe Stadium finals debut.

Third seeds Chan and Venus lost the first set 6-1, but then rallied to claim the second 6-4 to take the final to a super tiebreak, but the top seeds proved too strong as they edged the decider 10-8 after one hour, nine minutes to add the US Open to the title they won at Wimbledon two months ago.

Murray and Hingis romped through the draw at Wimbledon but things were tougher here.

Neither the 15th-seeded Keys nor the unseeded Stephens had ever participated in a Grand Slam title match before Saturday at Flushing Meadows.

"It's been a lot of fun, we've won a lot of close tennis".

Considering their outstanding record together - they are unbeaten since Hingis first suggested that they should play together at Wimbledon this summer - the Swiss player's reluctance to commit to the future might be seen as an indication that she is looking ahead to a life beyond tennis.

The Scot said: "This scoring format is a lot more random than at Wimbledon. I think that should be supported with some of these prize money increases".

In a postgame interview, Altidore said his mom told him that Stephens.

"I tried to find the best partner I could and I'm playing with her!" "I think throughout this tournament sometimes, you know, it happens that you are down match point and you end up winning".
