Nenad Zimonjic and Sam Stosur won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title on Sunday with a quick straight sets victory over Max Mirnyi and Hao-Ching Chan. It was the final match of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships.
The contest lasted a total of 56 minutes and ended 6-4, 6-2 in the Australian-Serbian duo’s favour. They lost just one set en route to the title.
“We had one really close match which went to 8-6 in the third, but the rest I thought we played really, really well,” said Zimonjic. “We controlled the matches from the beginning till the end, and it was a lot of fun to be on the court with Sam. Glad she said yes. Glad we took this chance.”
“With Nenad at the net, unbelievable hands and volleys, he can really back up my serving, which makes me feel good and be able to relax a little bit more on that point,” said Stosur. “As soon as you get an early break, that’s a huge boost getting that break from the guy. Once we got the first one in the second set, I think we were able to play pretty loose and keep playing well.”
This marks Zimonjic’s fifth Grand Slam mixed doubles title. His previous victories came at the 2004 Australian Open, 2006 Roland Garros, 2008 Australian Open and 2010 Roland Garros.
