    Great rally targetting Likhovtseva ( the weak link) Didn't work! Hingis in her element!

    I probably should have said this before, but surely Bhupathi and Hingis will have too much experience, firepower and smarts for their opponents. I would think Likhovtseva will be the weakest one on court by far.

    HOORAY!!

    HINGIS DOES WIN AN AO GS!

    I really don't mind if she got it from Mixed Doubles.

    She's got it! Singles, Doubles, Mixed Doubles in the bag!!!! (well, not from this year, but from all the years)

    And thank you Bhupathi for helping Hingis do it!

    Go HINGIS!

    They beat a lot of seeded 'couples' along the way too!!!

    I suspect all the World Team Tennis she played last summer really helped her in this tournament. Well done!

    This gives Bhupathi a career Grand Slam in mixed doubles (1 FO, 2 W, 2USO, 1AO), all 6 of his Slams coming with different partners.

    Congratulations Hingis on a successful comeback. She still has it.

    Congratulations Bhupathi on the career mixed double slam. If he can resolve his differences with compatriot Paes, they still may be a formidable doubles pair much like Woodbridge/Woodforde.
