"I definitely believed, when we were going into it, I felt like, you know, we had a great first set, second, we let go a little bit, but in the super-tiebreaker, I know we can still lift it up and play great tennis".

Murray and Hingis had already won Wimbledon in July while Saturday's triumph took their record as a team to a flawless 10-0.

The third seeds saved three of six break points and won five of 10, hitting 32 winners to set up a final against top seeds and reigning Wimbledon champions Hingis and Jamie Murray of Britain, who ousted Coco Vanderweghe of the United States and Horia Tecau of Romania 6-4, 7-6 (10/8) in 1 hour, 30 minutes. "We might not have finished them as well, so I think we'll be even more hungry to win on Sunday".

It was tight all the way in the first to 10 points with Murray and Hingis prevailing to add the US Open title to the Wimbledon title they won in July. At Wimbledon we played amazingly well in all the matches. Again today was very close.

Scot Murray, who won the the men's doubles title with Bruno Soares in NY previous year, now has five Grand Slam titles. "We just found a way through and looking forward to the final tomorrow".

Murray and Hingis, unbeaten as a duo, will play third seeds Hao-Ching Chan and Michael Venus in Saturday's final. The member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame has won five in singles, 12 in doubles, and seven in mixed doubles.

Murray agreed, saying that "we played a great tiebreak".
