Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and her Swiss partner Martina Hingis continued their stupendous run by clinching their 25th victory in a row together to enter the final of the Brisbane International tennis tournament here on Friday.
The top-seeded Indo-Swiss duo defeated the Slovak-Russian combination of Andreja Klepac and Alla Kudryavtseva 6-3, 7-5 to make the summit clash.
Sania and Hingis will next be up against winner of the other semifinal between the Spanish team of Anabel Medina Garrigues and Arantxa Parra Santonja and the German wildcard pairing of Angelique Kerber and Andrea Petkovic.
Sania and Hingis, currently the world’s No.1 team, breezed past their rivals in the opening set before facing slight resistance in the second.
“It’s been a long time since we’ve lost, but it’s never easy to start a new season, especially when you’re coming off such a great season. Everyone’s gunning for us – we’re the hunted,” Sania said.
“We’re just taking it one match at a time, stay positive, and pick up from where we left off.”
