Sania Mirza-Martina Hingis won their first Wimbledon women’s doubles title together on Saturday after beating Makarova-Vesnina 5-7 7-6 7-5 in a thrilling final the Centre Court in London.

“To come out here at Wimbledon, this is something we dream of as kids,” said Mirza.

“Every kid that picks up a tennis racquet this is about winning Wimbledon or playing at Wimbledon one day.

“When we came out at 5-5 we had goosebumps. The energy on the court, we were getting a standing ovation, it was unbelievable. We both came out and I said, This is what we play for, this is what we work for, this energy.”

Mirza praised the support she and Hingis received throughout the tournament and hoped her win will have a positive impact back home in cricket-mad India.

“I hope it inspires a lot of girls and makes them believe they can be Grand Slam champions too,” she said.

“I think for me as an Indian, I’m in Little India here. There are so many Indians in England. Thankfully there are a lot of us everywhere. In England especially I’ve always had amazing support.”

Hingis can be back amongst the silverware on Sunday when she and Leander Paes face Alexander Peya and Timea Babos in the mixed doubles championship match.
