Veteran Hingis amazed by 25th Grand Slam crown
Martina Hingis declared herself amazed after capturing her 25th career Grand Slam crown, partnering Taiwan's Chan Yung-Jan to win the US Open women's doubles final. The Swiss star, who turns 37 later this month, won her 13th Grand Slam women's doubles title as she and Chan beat Czechs Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova 6-3, 6-2. Hingis also has won five singles Slams and seven mixed doubles, including this year's US Open crown alongside Britain's Jamie Murray on Saturday. "Well, I think it sinks in maybe little later. Not right now," Hingis said. "But yeah, 25 sounds pretty amazing. I'm definitely very proud. What I've done in my career earlier, I'm very proud of that. I was very young. It has been 20 years, been on and off." Hingis won the last of her five singles Slams at the 1999 Australian Open.
