Hingis, Chan capture US Open women's doubles crown

Hingis, Chan capture US Open women's doubles crown

The milestone comes just 24 hours after she won the mixed doubles title at Flushing Meadows with Britain's Jamie Murray.

The question now is whether it will continue.

They are 10-0 since first playing together at Wimbledon, yet neither could commit to bringing it back at the Australian Open in January.

"It was an awesome feeling to play here in the singles final against Venus Williams", Hingis said.

Hingis said even after winning Wimbledon they waited a bit before talking about their plans for NY.

Murray and Hingis romped through the draw at Wimbledon but things were tougher here.

"We played a great tiebreak. So that's not an issue this time, I believe", she said.

Michael Venus has fallen just short of becoming the first New Zealander to win two grand slam tennis titles in the same year.

Trailing 8-7 late in the tiebreaker, the top seeds won the last three points to claim the mixed doubles title.

She'll go for No. 25 in women's doubles on Sunday - with Chan's sister as her partner.

Success: Murray has won his fifth Grand Slam title. Keys hadn't lost her serve in either of her two previous matches. She first quit in 2002 because of a long-term foot problem, returned at the start of 2006, but retired again in 2007 after testing positive for cocaine, which led to her being banned for two years.

And the 36-year-old - she turns 37 later this month - appeared to hint during the press conference that she is thinking about retiring for a third time.

"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.
