It was the 10th mixed doubles title at a major for India's Paes, the fifth for Switzerland's Hingis.

Paes also owns eight Grand Slam men's doubles trophies, while Hingis — a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame — has five in singles and 12 in women's doubles.

Heading into Roland Garros, she had won three majors in a row with Mirza as her doubles partner, but they lost in the third round in Paris.
