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.
Top seeds Murray and Hingis took the final 6-4 6-4 in what was Murray’s second Wimbledon title while Hingis claimed her sixth. I thought I got better with Jamie’s serve as the match went on.
“But because it’s far away, because of what happened previous year, I just like to take the opportunity to thank the people in the very moment, and make them understand, yes, I hope that I’m back”. “He said he came down in the middle of the first set”. But it was a great opportunity.
She said: “Jamie left me hanging overnight”. Watson fell just short in her bid to become the first British woman to defend this title since Dorothy Round Little in 1935-36, but she and her Finnish partner have enjoyed another excellent tournament. “It’s going to take something pretty special to kind of maybe, potentially take my eye off the ball with it”.
Hingis said she approached Murray because she knew he was too shy to ask her. Murray jumped at the chance.
Many fans on the Hill had also kept up to date with events at Silverstone, where Lewis Hamilton had earlier won the British Grand Prix for a record-equalling fifth time. It was an easy decision’.
And Murray saved break back points in the final game on his serve before sealing the match after 71 minutes. I’m so happy to reach the final again with Henri in the mixed.
They had to work for the title – saving three break points as they looked to serve it out, before Murray finished it off on his serve.
They have yet to drop a set this year but will face their toughest test yet in the final in the form of Henri Kontinen and Heather Watson.
“It was a odd feeling today, we haven’t felt it yet together”.
Murray said: “It’s just a great opportunity for me to play and to, like, really feel like you could do good things on the court and have a great shot to win”.
