Filipino American Desirae Krawczyk of the United States won her second Grand Slam victory in a row as she and Great Britain's Neal Skupski defeated all-British duo Harriet Dart and Joe Salisbury 6-2 7-6(1), to win the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon on Sunday.

Dart and Salisbury were hoping to become the first all-British pair to win the mixed doubles event at Wimbledon since Jo Durie and Jeremy Bates in 1987. 

Krawczyk and Salisbury won the French Open in June.
