US Open: Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis through to mixed doubles final

US Open: Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis through to mixed doubles final”

Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis will play for a second consecutive grand slam mixed doubles title at the US Open.

And the Scot was in no doubt about where the recent success could be traced back to, looking to replicate the form that saw him become men's doubles champion in the same Slam alongside Bruno Soares just past year.

The winners will face the first seeded duo of Jamie Murray of the United Kingdom and Martina Hingis, who is also competing in the mixed doubles event. Today, two more teams attempt to join them, with one player doing double duty. Vandeweghe and Tecau had five break points in the set but were unable to convert any of them.

However they fought back in the second set and traded service breaks before breaking again to take the set and force a deciding super tiebreak. I got broken [at 4-3 in the second set] and said: "'Maybe it's really time to play now.' He did great", Hingis told the tournament Web site.

Vandeweghe and Tecau had two set points in the tie-break when they led 6-4 after Murray put an attempted drop shot in the net, but the Scot saved the first with a service victor and Vandeweghe squandered the second when she missed a volley.

The last time Chan Yung-jan made it to the finals of the US Open was in 2007, when she teamed up with Taiwanese Chuang Chia-jung (莊佳容) in the women's doubles at Flushing Meadows.

It was revenge for Murray, who lost to Tecau and Jean-Julien Rojer in the quarter-finals of the men's doubles with Bruno Soares.

Now attentions quickly turn to New Zealand's Venus and Chan of Chinese Taipei, who also only needed straight sets to secure their battle with the top seeds.

"The idea came after the tragic incident in Charlottesville, and we came up with this line, promoting peace and freedom and liberty", Rojer said. "Hopefully we'll create those opportunities for everybody".
