Martina Hingis has now won four titles at Wimbledon

Martina Hingis won a second Wimbledon title in as many days as the former world number one partnered India's Leander Paes to mixed doubles success.

Hingis and Sania Mirza won the women's doubles final on Saturday, 17 years after Hingis's last Wimbledon triumph.

The Swiss, 34, returned to Centre Court on Sunday and combined with Paes to beat Austrian Alexander Peya and Hungary's Timea Babos 6-1 6-1.

They took just 40 minutes to seal victory.

"It's pretty exciting to come out and play like this in the final of a Grand Slam," said Hingis.

"I had a good night's sleep after yesterday's win and I was ready to go all the way.

"Now I just really enjoy it. It's much different to when I was 17. Singles is much more stressful. We just go out and enjoy it and bring the title home."

Paes, 42, has now won a total of four mixed doubles titles, while success for Hingis was her fifth at the All England Club.

Hingis, who claimed five Grand Slam titles during the 1990s, won her first Wimbledon doubles title with Helena Sukova as a 15-year-old in 1996 before winning the singles event a year later. She then added a second doubles title alongside Jana Novotna in 1998.

She retired in 2003 at the age of 22 after a series of ankle injuries, but returned to the WTA Tour in 2006.

Hingis quit the game for a second time in November 2007 after testing positive for cocaine, but denied she had ever taken drugs. She came out of retirement again in 2013.
