Martina Hingis declared herself amazed Sunday after capturing her 25th career Grand Slam crown, partnering with Taiwan's Chan Yung-Jan to win the US Open women's doubles title.

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.

In Grand Slam events, Hingis also has won five singles titles and seven mixed doubles crowns, the most recent of those coming Saturday alongside Britain's Jamie Murray on the New York hardcourts. "Well, it sinks in maybe little later. Not right now. But yeah, 25 sounds pretty amazing. I'm definitely very proud," Hingis said.

"What I've done in my career earlier, I'm very proud of that. I was very young. It has been 20 years now, on and off," she added.
