Hingis, Jamie Murray win mixed doubles

Taiwanese tennis player Chan Hao-ching

- Federer, 35, the oldest man to win Wimbledon in the Open era, which began in 1968. I'm really happy how we played. "I'm just happy it was mine".

Vesnina and Makarova, who lost the Wimbledon doubles final match in 2015 to Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza, had their sights set on this title for a long time.

Kubot also becomes a two-time grand slam champion after he won the Australian Open doubles title in 2014. We had that close final two years ago, lost 5-7 in the third.

The top-seeded duo of American Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Czech Lucie Safarova had to withdraw before the second round after Mattek-Sands suffered a severe injury in a singles match.

Kubot and Melo outclassed 14th seeded Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic in a memorable final 5-7 7-5 7-6 (2) 3-6 13-11.

Marach and Pavic paid the ultimate price for not realizing any of their four break points chances in the 17th game of the decider.

Makarova won 6-0 6-0 against Taiwan's Chan Hao-Ching and Romanian Monica Niculescu, under the Centre Court roof and lights in a match that did not get under way until 9.28pm.

Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo won their first grand slam doubles title together by edging a marathon five-set men's final at Wimbledon.
