BRITAIN’S HEATHER Watson joined Andy Murray and Gordon Reid in becoming a Wimbledon champion as she won the mixed doubles title with Finland’s Henri Kontinen.
Heather and Henri had never played together before this tournament but the new duo beat Colombia’s Robert Farah and Anna-Lena Groenefeld 7-6, 6-4 to seal their first grand slam title.
The 24-year-old is the first British player to win a Wimbledon mixed doubles final since Jamie Murray won the title in 2007 with Jelena Jankovic.
“It’s pretty awesome,” Heather told the BBC after the match.
“I can’t really describe how happy I am right now. I obviously can’t stop smiling, I couldn’t have picked anyone better to share this experience with.
“We had so much fun from the first point to the last one. I think that’s why we did so well and played so well together.”
