Andy Murray and Johanna Konta may have fell just short in the singles, but Jamie Murray ensured that there was at least one British victor at Wimbledon this fortnight, as he yesterday won the mixed doubles title alongside Martina Hingis.
Britain's Jamie Murray and Switzerland's Martina Hingis won the mixed doubles title.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge led a large royal contingent at Wimbledon yesterday on a momentous day for British sport - when tennis fans watched Jamie Murray beat Heather Watson in the mixed doubles final, dubbed the "Battle of the Brits".
"The doubles for me is obviously my biggest goal of the year and t's going to take something pretty special to kind of maybe potentially take my eye off the ball with it".
Murray meanwhile does not have the same collection but has won at Wimbledon before, taking the mixed title with Jelena Jankovic in 2007.

This was a 23rd Grand Slam title for the Swiss, 21 years after she won her first here in the women's doubles at the age of 15. "I just saw him there", Jamie said. With Andy Murray rushing on to the grounds to see the final stages, the top seeds saved three break points on the Murray serve before a return in the net by Watson handed them victory.
Kontinen and Watson had two chances to break the Murray serve at 3-2 up in the second set but could not take them. They earned five break points in the set but Watson couldn't capitalize, often being flummoxed by the Scot's swinging left-handed delivery.
The 25-year-old Channel Islander reflected afterwards on her first ever loss with Kontinen.
'It was a great opportunity for me to have a great shot to win, ' said Murray. Like, I knew I could do well with her. "I mean, she's always smiling and happy and stuff". When she texted me it was an easy decision and it's great to have the trophy again. Murray and Hingis have yet to discuss future plans but it seems likely they will defend their title next summer and they may even play together in the US Open later this summer. I think he just waited in the lockers.
