LONDON (Reuters) - Martina Hingis marked the 20th anniversary of her sole Wimbledon singles crown by teaming up with Britain's Jamie Murray to win the mixed doubles title on Sunday.

After fellow Swiss Roger Federer had claimed a record eighth Wimbledon singles title, Hingis and Murray delighted the Centre Court crowd with a 6-4 6-4 victory over reigning champions Heather Watson of Britain and Finland's Henri Kontinen.

Hingis has now won six major mixed doubles titles as well as 12 in women's doubles -- not to mention her five in singles.

Murray won the mixed title 10 years ago with Serbian player Jelena Jankovic.
