Hingis and Murray remain undefeated, win the US Open

Hingis and Murray remain undefeated, win the US Open

Switzerland's Martina Hingis and Taiwan's Chan Yung-Jan won the U.S. Open women's doubles title on Sunday when they rolled past the Czech partnership of Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova 6-3 6-2.

Murray and Hingis had already won Wimbledon in July while Saturday's triumph took their record as a team to a flawless 10-0.

For Hingis, it was a 25th career Grand Slam title overall and her third of the year.

"She's such a great player, you know, a huge champion of the game".

The 36-year-old's achievement is made all the more remarkable by the 13-year gap between her 2002 Australian Open doubles title and her next at Wimbledon in 2015.

A bid for a second slice of grand slam history has fallen short for New Zealand doubles specialist Michael Venus. They will do the same now, though if Hingis decides to keep playing after turning 37 at the end of this month, it sounds as if it will be with Murray.

Irma destroyed government buildings, tore roofs from houses and left northern Caribbean islands without power or communications. This will help in protecting some of the grid infrastructures, making it easier to restore power once the flood waters recede.

It was a case of so close yet so far for Venus, 29, who won his first Grand Slam doubles title with Ryan Harrison at the French Open last June.

"It's been a lot of fun for me", Murray said.

"It's a great opportunity for me to compete with Martina".

After the match, Murray reiterated his concerns about prize money for this format of the game.

"He texted me and said well done", he told reporters. I think it happened six or seven tournaments in a row that we lost to the team that went on and won.
