New York: Indian tennis ace Leander Paes clinched his 17th Grand Slam crown by winning the US Open mixed doubles title with Swiss partner Martina Hingis here.

The fourth seeded Indo-Swiss pair on Friday defeated unseeded Americans Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Sam Querrey 6-4, 3-6, 10-7 in a tricky final in one hour and 17 minutes on Friday to win their third Major title together this season.

The duo had earlier won the Australian Open and Wimbledon crown.

The Indian-Swiss pair fired 32 winners and staved off four of five break points over the 77-minute affair.
