After winning the 2015 Wimbledon women's doubles crown along with India's Sania Mirza, Swiss veteran Martina Hingis is eyeing another title as she prepares for the mixed doubles final on Sunday.
Martina Hingis alongside Leander Paes will try to win their second grand slam of the year as they face the fifth seeded pair of Alexander Peya and Timea Babos for the 2015 Wimbledon mixed doubles title. The Indo-Swiss pair had won the Australian Open defeating Kristina Mladenovic and Daniel Nestor earlier in the year.
Hingis and Paes have been amazing in the competition so far, which was evident in their semi-final clash against top seeds Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Mike Bryan, which they won 6-3 and 6-4. A similar performance could help the Indo-Swiss pair win the title.
Paes has been dominating the game at the net with his clean volleys and outstanding reflexes.
Despite his age (42), Paes never seems to run short of energy and always encourages his partner and the same thing will be required from him as Hingis might be tired after the doubles final, which was stretched to three sets on Saturday.
The seventh seed need to be on top of their game as their opponents, Peya and Babos, will also be a confident unit after winning their semi-final against Robert Lindstedt and Anabel Medina Garrigues. They played some quality tennis to win the remaining two sets and the third set produced some exhilarating tennis from both the pairs. The final score read 6-4, 3-6 and 11-9 in favour of the fifth seed.
Hence, an interesting final looms large with both pairs eager to outdo one another to win the title.
Paes has won three Wimbledon mixed doubles title with Lisa Raymond (1999), Martin Navratilova (2003) and Cara Black (2010). So on Sunday, Paes will be gunning for his fourth Wimbledon mixed doubles title with another partner, Martina Hingis.
