Murray has now won four Grand Slam mixed doubles titles, three in the last five tournaments, to add to the two men's doubles titles he won with Bruno Soares in 2016. For American Mattek-Sands, 33, who has five women's doubles titles at the Slams, it was an emotional win, coming just over a year since she suffered a knee injury at Wimbledon.
