President Pranab Mukherjee today congratulated veteran tennis player Leander Paes on winning the US Open mixed doubles crown along with Swiss great Martina Hingis.

"Well done @Leander @mhingis, hearty congratulations on winning the U.S Open mixed doubles," President Mukherjee said in the official Twitter account of Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Sports Minister Sarbananda Sonowal also congratulated Paes and Hingis on their historic feat. "Many congratulations to @Leander and @mhingis.You guys are truly legendary!!," he tweeted.

Paes today created history by winning the US Open mixed doubles title with Hingis in New York as the veteran Indian now has the highest number of mixed doubles titles in open era. The fourth seeded Indo-Swiss pair edged past unseeded Americans Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Sam Querrey 6-4 3-6 10-7 in the final to win their third Major title together this season.

Forty-two-year-old Paes now has won nine Grand Slam mixed doubles titles, surpassing compatriot and former partner Mahesh Bhupathi's record of eight titles. He is now behind only legendary Martina Navratilova, who has won 10 mixed doubles trophies.
