Hingis, a former world number one singles player who won the US Open title 20 years ago, praised her partner.

"He's a great partner to have. His wingspan as you saw at the end," she said, referring to Murray's reaching overhead smash that ended the tight tie breaker to cap off the hour-long contest.
