Martina Hingis and Jamie Murray rounded off the Wimbledon finals and the matches of the fortnight by beating defending champions Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen on Sunday on Centre Court.

Britain's Jamie Murray and Switzerland's Martina Hingis won the mixed doubles title.

Martina Hingis and Jamie Murray discuss tactics during the mixed doubles final against Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen.

Murray and Bruno Soares had been disappointed to lose in the second round of the men's doubles in the first week, after winning titles at the Australian and US Opens previous year. "It's going to take something pretty special to kind of maybe, potentially take my eye off the ball with it".

The pair only teamed up two weeks ago after former world No1 Hingis invited Murray, who won the same title with Jelena Jankovic in 2007, by text message on the eve of the tournament.

Hingis, who has won five Grand Slam singles titles, 11 women's doubles and six mixed doubles, usually gets her way.

Hingis said she approached Murray because she knew he was too shy to ask her. Murray jumped at the chance.

The two men are set to face each other in a boxing ring in Las Vegas on 26 August in what could be the richest fight in history. Hopefully Conor goes out there and knocks Floyd out, and then he can go ahead and fight the victor of GGG and "Canelo" Alvarez.

"But because it's far away, because of what happened past 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. I don't know if he snuck a few points in or not".

The crowd's support was certainly evenly spread, but Murray was the star of the show and he earned the first break with a dart across the net, but a poor game from Hingis allowed Watson and Kontinen instantly to hit back.

"I cry with Roger when he won the grand slam".

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. It's great to be in a final and I'm really looking forward to it. "But I think Federer [gave me the] push me to play tennis".

The 25-year-old Channel Islander reflected afterwards on her first ever loss with Kontinen.

"It was a unusual feeling today, we haven't felt it yet together".
