Paes and Hingis gesture to the crowd, which included family and friends at the All England Club on Sunday.
"This trophy is for India," Paes told NDTV later, adding he took the business of representing India very seriously.
Paes hits balls autographed by himself and Hingis to delighted spectators at Center Court after winning yet another Wimbledon title.
Paes said he appreciated Hingis' professionalism and endurance - barely 24 hours back, the Swiss was on court playing the women's doubles final with Sania Mirza.
It was Paes' eighth Grand Slam mixed title and a third for Hingis.
