Hingis and Murray win US Open mixed doubles title

Martina Hingis of Switzerland right and Jamie Murray of Great Britain hold up the championship trophy after winning the mixed doubles final of the U.S. Open tennis tournament against Chan Hao-Ching of Taiwan and Michael Venus of New Zealand in New

Venus and Hao-Ching Chan lost the US Open mixed doubles final in NY on Sunday to top seeds Martina Hingis (Switzerland) and Jamie Murray (Scotland).

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.

For Hingis, it was a 25th career Grand Slam title overall and her third of the year.

Hingis thought there might be scope to play mixed doubles in March at the Indian Wells and Miami tournaments, which are played over more than week, while Murray said that mixed was "a lot of fun".

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

Martina Hingis and Jamie Murray won 2-1 to claim the title.

Hingis hinted she may retire for a third time but said if did turn out in 2018, she would "definitely" play with Murray. They will do the same now, though if Hingis decides to keep playing after turning 37 at the end of this month, it sounds as if it will be with Murray. "So that's not an issue this time, I believe", she said.

Says Keys: "She can buy me drinks, all of the drinks".

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 for me and a great opportunity for me to compete with Martina", he said.

The Kiwi bounced back by unleashing four straight wins with Chan, the world's 12th-ranked women's doubles player.

Cori "CoCo" Gauff will try to become the youngest U.S. Open girls' champion on Sunday when she faces fellow American Amanda Anisimova.
