Jamie Murray triumphs in US Open mixed doubles final

Martina Hingis (L) of Switzerland talks to Jamie Murray of Great Britain during the mixed doubles final match against Hao-Ching Chan of Chinese Taipei and Michael Venus of New Zealand at the 2017 US Open in NY, the United States, Sept. 9, 2017.

Murray and Hingis had already won Wimbledon in July while Saturday's triumph took their record as a team to a ideal 10-0.

Stephens became only the fifth unseeded player to win a women's Slam title.

Kiwi Michael Venus shakes hands with Martina Hingis after losing to the former world No 1's team in the US Open mixed doubles final.

Stephens said she met Altidore, who plays for the USA national team, in fifth grade.

Murray said. "Look, she's an awesome player, she's had such a great career".

In a postgame interview, Altidore said his mom told him that Stephens.

Third seeds Chan and Venus lost the first set 6-1, but then rallied to claim the second 6-4 to take the final to a super tiebreak, but the top seeds proved too strong as they edged the decider 10-8 after one hour, nine minutes to add the US Open to the title they won at Wimbledon two months ago.

He said: "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". Asked during her press conference about her emotions, Keys joked that "I think drinks will help me through this tough time".

"I did play a lot of mixed doubles when I first started playing and had a lot of success". She had surgery in January and returned to the tour in July.

"It's a great opportunity for me to compete with Martina".
