Former Sun Devil Desirae Krawczyk Wins Wimbledon Mixed Doubles Title

The 2016 ASU graduate has now won back-to-back Grand Slam mixed titles.

Make room for more trophies in the cabinet. 

On Sunday, women's tennis player and former Arizona State Sun Devil Desirae Krawczyk secured a mixed-doubles title at Wimbledon with her partner Neal Skupski. The victory, coming over the duo of Joe Salisbury and Harriet Dart, was won by a score of 6-2, 7-6 (1). Per BBC, they broke twice in the opening set, which only lasted 28 minutes. Dart and Salisbury were also two points away from forcing a deciding set, before Skupski/Krawczyk dominated the second-set tie-break.

Krawczyk now has won back-to-back Grand Slam titles after winning the French Open in June, with Krawczyk also achieving a third Grand Slam final appearance within a year after making the 2020 French Open in women's doubles. Skupski also played alongside Krawczyk during her most recent French Open victory.

Now, Krawczyk looks to complete a third straight Grand Slam victory at the U.S. Open on Aug. 30.

Krawczyk's dominance on the court is nothing new for Arizona State fans, as she went 97-43 in singles and 75-31 in doubles during her time in Tempe. Krawczyk graduated from Arizona State in 2016 with a Bachelor's of Science in Family and Human Development. 

“I just can’t believe it; I’m just shocked,” said Krawczyk after the match per “I never imagined I would win back-to-back Grand Slam mixed titles. It’s just incredible.”
