Taiwan's Chan Hao-ching and partner trounced in US Open final

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.

The Swiss has won five major singles titles, thirteen major doubles titles, and seven mixed.

"It was an unbelievable feeling to play here in the singles final", Hingis said of her 1997 Arthur Ashe Stadium finals debut. With this victory, she now has 24 Grand Slam titles across singles and doubles.

Murray said he had enjoyed every minute of his time on court with Hingis. "I mean, winning or losing, I think it's for the spectators, it's fun, because it brings more drama to it".

Scottish Tennis star Sir Andy Murray has lauded his older brother Jamie after he won the US Open Mixed Doubles final with partner Martina Hingis.

Murray took to Twitter after Wimbledon to point out the prize money he collected for winning the title with Jelena Jankovic in 2007 had not changed in 10 years.

"Obviously a lot of money has been pumped into the Grand Slams over the last few years and people are making a lot more money than they used to, but a majority of that is going into the singles game", Murray said. "I think that that should be supported". "So that's not an issue this time, I believe", she said.
