Washington Kastles superstar Martina Hingis and Jamie Murray captured their second mixed doubles title on Saturday, topping Hao-Ching Chan and Michael Venus 6-1, 4-6, 10-8 in the US Open final.
The two saved a match point in their second-round match over Kveta Peschke (Philadelphia Freedoms) and Marcelo Demoliner during their title run in New York. Hingis and Murray are undefeated as a team, having triumphed in their team debut at Wimbledon earlier this season.
“I think this one has been a little bit more dramatic from start to the end,” assessed Hingis. “I think throughout this tournament, sometimes it happens that you are down match point and you end up winning. That’s what we did.”
Hingis will look to add the women’s doubles crown on Sunday with Yung-Jan Chan (Hao-Ching’s sister) against seventh seeds Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova.
