What’s on the line? She would be the first person to win two titles at the same Wimbledon since Serena Williams in 2016 won the singles and doubles. Martina Hingis in 2015 was the last person to win the women’s mixed doubles combo at Wimbledon.
Krawczyk has won three majors in 2021 (French Open, US Open with Joe Salisbury and Wimbledon with Skupski), the first player to win three mixed doubles slams in the same year since Martina Hingis and Leander Paes in 2015.
