He only paired up with Hingis on the eve of the tournament after she sent him a text inviting him to play with her.

'A lot of guys in the locker room would be jumping at the chance to join Martina'.

Centre Court remained almost full after Roger Federer had won a record eighth singles title, and Henman Hill was in raucous good spirits as fans - some of whom had queued for up to two days to gain entry - supported either "Team Hev" or "Team Jamie", although one Centre Court wag couldn't decide who he would rather win, shouting "Come on, all of you" as the score stood at three all in the second set.

The big-hitting Kontinen, the men's doubles world No1, had his moments and Watson held her own but last year's champions were always up against it with Hingis's dipping returns perfectly complementing Murray's sharp net play.

Hingis was the runner-up to Kontinen and Watson past 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. She's won everything, won so many mixed as well. Also, the mixed doubles saw two British players in Jamie and Heather go head-to-head in a Wimbledon final for the first time since 1961. It's a great achievement. Any time you win a grand slam, get your name up on the board again, it's there forever. "So I totally see myself playing here this time next year", he says. He said he came, like, in the middle of the first set. I think that's what matters. "I don't know if he snuck a few points in or not".

Another Murray intervention sealed a second break for 4-3 and this time they served out when the Scot hammered away a smash.

The second set was close until the seventh game when Watson's serve came under pressure.
