Hingis and Murray saved three set points in the second set tie-break Britain’s Jamie Murray and Switzerland’s Martina Hingis made the US Open final with a straight-set win. The pair, who won the Wimbledon title earlier this year, overcame American Coco Vandeweghe and Romania’s Horia Tecau 6-4 7-6 (10-8) in 90 minutes.

Murray and Hingis, unbeaten as a duo, will play third seeds Hao-Ching Chan and Michael Venus in final.

“We played a lot of great stuff at Wimbledon. Here we’ve fought really hard. It was very close,” said Murray. “She made some great shots at the end and we just found a way through.”

Hingis is seeking to win her 24th Grand Slam title across singles and doubles while Murray is bidding for a fifth major doubles crown. Inspired to play tennis?

Hingis is also in Sunday’s women’s doubles final where she is playing with Chinese Taipei’s Yung-Jan Chan. Tecau and Vandeweghe came close to forcing a deciding set, squandering three set points in the tie-break.

Tecau had won the men’s doubles’ title alongside Dutchman Jean-Julien Rojer earlier in the day with victory over Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez.
