Martina Hingis and Jamie Murray win mixed doubles title at Wimbledon

Murray and Hingis only teamed up on the eve of the tournament
Andy Murray and Johanna Konta may have fell just short in the singles, but Jamie Murray ensured that there was at least one British victor at Wimbledon this fortnight, as he yesterday won the mixed doubles title alongside Martina Hingis.
Having chose to end her partnership with Leander Paes, with whom she was beaten in the final at Wimbledon last year, Martina Hingis contacted Jamie Murray just before this year's mixed doubles event with a simple question.
He and Hingis were the number one seeds and victory was consolation for Murray after he and partner Bruno Soares went out in the second round of the men's doubles.
"I haven't really played that much in the last couple of years but for me it was a great opportunity to play with Martina", Murray told reporters after their semifinal win. "It's going to take something pretty special to kind of maybe, potentially take my eye off the ball with it". Ten years after partnering Jelena Jankovic to victory here, this was his fourth grand slam crown in all while Hingis took her total to 23, five singles, 12 women's doubles and six mixed, five of which have come since the beginning of 2015.
The Finn and the Brit are defending champions after Watson secured her first ever Grand Slam title in any format in this very event a year ago.
Murray and Hingis will start the final as favourites but there will be at least one set of British hands on the trophy come Sunday evening no matter what, a prospect Watson says she is relishing. Like, I knew I could do well with her. After Hingis held to love, the pair saved three break points to serve out for the title.
Watson said: "I think that I missed a few too many returns today".
"I knew we would have to play a good match if we wanted to have a chance to win and we were able to do that".
"But like I said, it was a great opportunity".
Murray and Hingis will be the favourites but Kontinen and Watson showed previous year how risky they are. 'A odd feeling today, we haven't felt it yet together.
