Martina Hingis reached her first Wimbledon final in 17 years on Friday, combining with Sania Mirza to make it all the way to the showpiece event in the women's doubles.

The top-seeded pairing defeated the American duo of Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears 6-1 6-2 on Friday at SW19.

They will now face Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina for the title.

Hingis, who is now 34, has won the women's doubles at Wimbledon twice before, firstly in 1996 and then again in 1998.

Her victory in the singles competition was sandwiched in between - the Swiss defeated Jana Novotna in three sets in 1997, in the process claiming one of her five grand slam singles victories.
