Jamie Murray and Martin Hingis won their second consecutive mixed doubles title on Saturday in New York, defeating Michael Venus and Chan Hao-Ching, 6-1, 4-6, 10-8. The pair are now the first team to win back-to-back mixed titles at the majors since Hingis and Leander Paes achieved the feat.

The pair had to win three match tiebreaks to get the title, and they also saved five set points in their straight sets win over CoCo Vandeweghe and Horia Tecau in the semifinals. “I think the super-tiebreakers, we know how to play them by this time, at this point,” said Hingis.

The victory brings Hingis’ career Grand Slam title count to 24. She’ll go for a 25th on Sunday she pairs with Chan Yung-Jan in the doubles final against Katerina Siniakova and Lucie Hradecka.

“The crowd was really into it,” said Murray, who has now won five major titles. “There was a lot of noise. Some crazy rallies going on. For us, it's like so much fun to go there and play and play in a huge stadium, a lot of people coming out to watch. They are there four hours before the women's singles final, so they are there because they want to come and watch us play. Yeah, makes us want to put on a good show."
