Share

The name of Murray was engraved on another US Open trophy as Jamie, alongside Martina Hingis, won the mixed doubles title in a fast and furious final that required precision, power and a steady nerve.

With the most recent two coming alongside former women's number one Hingis, he paid tribute to her and said he was keen to keep the partnership going. Hingis and Murray won $US675,000 ($NZ930,000).

It marks Murray's fifth career Grand Slam crown, and Hingis' seventh mixed major (and her 24th overall).

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

Venus's main focus at Flushing Meadows had ben the men's doubles but he and Harrison lost in the first round, denting their shot at qualifying for the year-ending ATP finals.

Trailing 8-7 late in the tiebreaker, the top seeds won the last three points to deny Venus a second grand slam title in 2017.

Hingis, who reached No. 1 in the rankings and won five Grand Slam singles titles in the 1990s, initially quit tennis in 2002 because of foot and leg injuries, then rejoined the circuit full-time in 2006.

She returned to the tennis tour in recent years as a coach before starting to play again.
