LONDON, Great Britain - Martina Hingis will play for her second mixed doubles title at Wimbledon, as the top seeded Swiss and her partner Jamie Murray advanced to the final with a 6-2, 7-5 win over unseeded María José Martínez Sánchez and Marcelo Demoliner on Friday.
Hingis and Murray haven't lost a set together at the Championships, as the Swiss looks to win another trophy at the All-England Club, to go along with a singles trophy (1997), three ladies' doubles trophies (1996, 1998, 2015) and the 2015 mixed doubles title.
Standing in her way will be the Cinderella sequel of Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen, who defeated No.2 seeds Elena Vesnina and Bruno Soares, 6-4, 6-7(6), 6-3 to return to the final for the second year in a row.
The Brit and the Finn knocked off their fourth seeded team in five matches this week, as their semifinal match was their second straight three-set victory after a quarterfinal win over Roland Garros champions and No.10 seeds Gabriela Dabrowski and Rohan Bopanna.
