LONDON (AP) -- Daniel Nestor of Canada and Kristina Mladenovic of France saved two match points, then went on to win the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon on Sunday by beating top-seeded Bruno Soares of Brazil and Lisa Raymond of the United States 5-7, 6-2, 8-6.

Nestor and Mladenovic, seeded eighth, saved their match points when trailing 6-5 in the third set on Centre Court. They then broke Soares' serve at 6-6 when Raymond and Soares hit back-to-back unforced errors into the net.

The win for Nestor was his third major mixed doubles title. The Canadian also won the Australian Open in 2007 and '11.
