Wimbledon Mixed final: Grönefeld/Knowles def. Black/Paes 7:5 6:3

First grand slam victory for Anna-Lena

They were down 2:5 in the first (Black/Paes) had set points, but they fight and played really well

well done

Carina Witthöft / Mona Barthel / Annika Beck / Andrea Petkovic / Angelique Kerber / Anna-Lena Friedsam / Kimiko Date Krumm / Dinah Pfizenmaier / Mandy Minella

Wimbledon Final!


Congratulations to them, they thoroughly deserve it, so many impressive comebacks on their way to the title! This the big highlight of what has been an amazing return to the top of the game by Anna-Lena.

Shame for Cara and Leander, horrible way to lose the first set.

It would have been good for the best player in the world to finish with a title but she still has had a great tournament, a great year and looking forward for her to defend her 2 US Open titles later in the summer.

Rightful winners won. Anna-Lena's serve is five classes above Black's and typically that decides mixed.

ALG Wimbledon champion - unreal

Mark has now won all 4 GS title, Wimbledon was missing in doubles, but now he won it in mixed

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Certainly they played better in the end but let's not get ahead of ourselves, it's a big upset. Cara's serve is one of the weakest on tour but she's one of the best mixed doubles players which shows she usually makes up for it.

Well done to Knowles/Groenefeld! Knowles completes his career slam whilst Groenefeld wins her first ever slam

So happy for Anna-Lena Her smile was as wide as Centre Court when they won!

Big upset my ass. I agree Black is a good mixed player, but the quality of serving by the woman player is often the most important factor in mixed.

Oh come on, she might have won one already had she not been trained by this idiot... That's not a nice post at all.
