Wimbledon: Martina Hingis Brilliantly Wins Ladies’ and Mixed Doubles Crowns

Tennis legend Martina Hingis (EZONE Ai 100, POLYTOUR PRO 125, SHT-PROL) exhibited performances reinforcing her monumental status in the tennis world as Wimbledon concluded on July 12th, winning both the ladies’ doubles and mixed doubles titles at the prestigious tournament.

This year’s Championships saw Martina earn her tenth women’s doubles title—her first since the Australian Open in 2002—and her 18th Grand Slam title overall. “It's amazing. These two weeks have been really incredible, and I enjoyed every moment of it. It was very emotional, especially the women's doubles final—the way we came back, and how the fans were receiving us. Of course, getting another Grand Slam mixed title also is like a dream come true,” commented Martina after her big win.

Paired with India’s Sania Mirza in ladies’ doubles, the Swiss-Indian duo demonstrated excellent performance throughout the tournament, seizing every single one of their matches until the final without dropping a set. Against American duo Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears in the semifinal, the pair confidentially secured a 6-1, 6-2 victory in under an hour, without being broken once or committing a single unforced error.

The final match placed No. 1 seeds against No. 2 seeds; Martina and Sania overcoming Russian rivals Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina in an exceedingly tense match. The duo dropped the first set at a very slim margin, coming back to secure the second after a tight tiebreaker, Martina smacking a backhand winner up the line, with her partner sealing the set with a forehand winner. The final set saw the Russian pair lead at 5-2, but Martina and Sania grabbed successive winners at the net to level 5-5. The pair then broke to lead 6-5, leading to Martina serving for the winning game—a serve that proved too potent for the Russian opposition. Martina and Sania won the title with a final score of 5-7, 7-6(4), 7-5.

Martina and partner Leander Paes dominated in the mixed doubles tournament, not dropping a single set on their road to victory. After securing a comfortable 6-3, 6-4 win over American duo Mike Bryan and Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Martina and Leander met up with Alexander Peya and Timea Babos in a stunning final. The pair broke twice in the first set to seize it in 19 minutes, proceeding to rush up to a 6-1, 4-0 lead in set 2. The pair refused their opponents a chance to break, with zero double faults or unforced errors committed to close the match at 6-1, 6-1 in just 40 minutes.
