“It feels like it was in another life,” Hingis said of her last appearance at Wimbledon. “I wouldn’t have thought that I’d be back playing the finals here. To hold up the trophy with Sania, three years ago I would sign for this right away, that’s for sure.”
The win was recorded the first title for No 1 doubles player Sania Mirza of India.
“Every kid that picks up a tennis racquet, this is about winning Wimbledon or playing at Wimbledon one day,” said Mirza.
“I think I’m speaking for both of us, we feel privileged to be here.”
