After fellow Swiss Roger Federer had claimed a record eighth Wimbledon singles title, Hingis and Murray delighted the Centre Court crowd with a 6-4 6-4 victory over reigning champions Heather Watson of Britain and Finland's Henri Kontinen.

The duo only chose to strike up a partnership in the days leading up to The Championships, but breezed through the draw without dropping a single set, overcoming defending champions Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen 6-4 6-4 in the final on Centre Court.

"The [men's] doubles for me is obviously my biggest goal of the year", Murray said. "It's going to take something pretty special to potentially take my eye off the ball with it".

Murray meanwhile does not have the same collection but has won at Wimbledon before, taking the mixed title with Jelena Jankovic in 2007.

The win comes 20 years after Hingis won her first title at Wimbledon but as a lanky player from Switzerland laced with the consistency in her groundstrokes and in sharp contrast to the power game that the fans are accustomed to seeing now. But I think he just waited in the locker room because he said he didn't want to watch it. 'I don't take no for an answer. With Andy Murray rushing on to the grounds to see the final stages, the top seeds saved three break points on the Murray serve before a return in the net by Watson handed them victory. They earned five break points in the set but Watson couldn't capitalize, often being flummoxed by the Scot's swinging left-handed delivery. Like, I knew I could do well with her. It's great to be in a grand slam final and I'm really looking forward to it on Sunday.
