Hingis and Murray too good for Chan and Venus

Murray and Hingis after winning the US Open said that doubles deserves more support

Neither the 15th-seeded Keys nor the unseeded Stephens had ever participated in a Grand Slam title match before Saturday at Flushing Meadows. "So that's not an issue this time, I believe", she said.

Scottish Tennis star Sir Andy Murray has lauded his older brother Jamie after he won the US Open Mixed Doubles final with partner Martina Hingis.

She will be trying to win a 25th Grand Slam title here on Sunday in the women's doubles final alongside Taiwan's Yung-Jan Chan, against the Czech Republic's Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova.

She said: "If I play, then definitely we will (play together)".

Routed by Sloane Stephens in the U.S. Open women's final, Keys says she would "1,000 percent go" to her friend's victory celebration. "Sometimes I just wanted to focus on that".

"Obviously a lot of money has been pumped into the Grand Slams over the last few years and people are making a lot more money than they used to, but a majority of that is going into the singles game", Murray said.

Fleming, now national coach for Tennis Scotland, won the Delhi 2010 gold medal with Jocelyn Rae and collected eight ATP doubles titles before retiring at the beginning of the year.

Both players are competing for their first major title.

"I tried to find the best partner I could and I'm playing with her!"

The young Taiwanese-New Zealand pair, seeded third for the tournament, fought a tough battle against the Wimbledon champions Hingis - the former five-time grand slam singles champion - and Murray at the beginning of the match, losing to the top seeds 6-1 in only 22 minutes in the first set.

Stephens was sidelined for 11 months because of a stress fracture in her left foot.
