  • Murray has three potential options depending on the diagnosis including an operation

"I find Henri so enjoyable to play with".

'This was pretty sweet and I have to give huge thanks to Martina - when she texted me it was an easy decision and it's great to have the trophy again.

As a woman who had already won 17 Grand Slam doubles titles, not to mention singles crowns - the first of which came at Wimbledon 20 years ago - Hingis, 36, is a great catch for anyone who wants to win a major title.

Top seeds Murray and Hingis took the final 6-4 6-4 in what was Murray's second Wimbledon title while Hingis claimed her sixth.

His younger brother Andy, the defending singles champion, was knocked out in the quarter-finals.

Murray responded: "I didn't get her message till I woke up in the morning".

"I'm really happy how we played and performed", said Hingis. It's a great achievement.

Hingis was the runner-up to Kontinen and Watson previous year alongside Leander Paes but when she dumped the Indian in favour of Murray, the Scot knew he had a great chance to add to his grand slam tally. "We have the next Grand Slam coming up [the US Open] and we'll have to talk about that". Murray said: "I just saw him there".

Another Murray intervention sealed a second break for 4-3 and this time they served out when the Scot hammered away a smash. 'I think he just waited in the lockers. We'll have plenty of time to do that tonight for the next tournaments coming up'. Ten years after partnering Jelena Jankovic to victory here, this was his fourth grand slam crown in all while Hingis took her total to 23, five singles, 12 women's doubles and six mixed, five of which have come since the beginning of 2015. In the first set, as both men held easily, the key battles were fought on the Watson and Hingis serve.

The pair said they had not yet discussed extending their partnership for future tournaments but they formed a potent team, winning the title without dropping a single set.

"I approached Jamie because he is a very nice guy and everybody knew I had been..." 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.
