NEW YORK (AP):

Martina Hingis and Jamie Murray have been the perfect partnership.

The question now is whether it will continue.

Hingis and Murray won the US Open mixed doubles title, beating Michael Venus of New Zealand and Chan Hao-Ching of Taiwan 6-1, 4-6, 10-8 in a match tiebreaker for their second Grand Slam title in two tournaments as a team.

They are 10-0 since first playing together at Wimbledon, yet neither could commit to bringing it back at the Australian Open in January.

"It's a long way to go until next year," Hingis said.

Hingis said even after winning Wimbledon, they waited a bit before talking about their plans for New York. They will do the same now, though if Hingis decides to keep playing after turning 37 at the end of this month, it sounds as if it will be with Murray.

"We said yes, if we go to Australia, everyone is healthy and playing. So that's not an issue this time, I believe," she said.

Twenty years after winning the US Open singles title, Hingis earned her 24th Grand Slam title, including a fifth at Flushing Meadows. The member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame has won five in singles, 12 in doubles, and seven in mixed doubles.

Hingis won her 25th title on Sunday in the women's doubles with Chan's sister as her partner.
