Entry info: #7 seeded team (?/?) pulled out were replaced by alternates: Hetherington/Baxter.

Notes: Martina and Emilio won in a thrilling final set tie-break on their 7th match point, after saving two on the Grandstand Court at the last the day of the event! Navratilova captured a rare triple crown -until this day the last one - might be forever knowing that the top singles players hardly play doubles, almost never mixed, and never all 3 - winning the women's singles the day before, and the women's doubles with Pam Shriver earlier on that Sunday.
Last triple was accomplished by Billie Jean King in 1973 at Wimbledon / at the US Open by Margaret Court in 1970.
