Fifteenth seeds Samantha Stosur and Nenad Zimonjic claimed the mixed doubles title with a 6-4 6-2 win against 14th seeds Chan Hao-Ching of Taiwan and Max Mirnyi of Belarus at Wimbledon on Sunday in the final match of the 2014 championships.

For Australian Stosur, who exited the women`s single draw in the first round, it was a second Wimbledon title after she won in 2008 with Bob Bryan.

Zimonjic is part of Serbia`s Davis Cup team and had earlier watched team mate Novak Djokovic claim the men`s singles title before laying claim to some silverware of his own on Centre Court.

"This was kind of a feeling like playing the Davis Cup, watching Novak play and then being ready to step on the court," Zimonjic said.
