Melbourne, Jan 27: Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and her Swiss partner Martina Hingis stormed into the final of the women's doubles event of the Australian Open after notching up a comfortable straight-set win here today (January 27).
Sania and Martina, who are on a record winning streak, continued to rule the roost as they brushed aside Julia Goerges and Karolina Pliskova, the 13th seeds, 6-1, 6-0 in just 54 minutes at Rod Laver Arena to enter their third successive doubles Grand Slam final.
The top seeded Indo-Swiss pair will take on the seventh seeded Czech combination of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in the summit clash. Sania and Martina broke their rivals twice in the first set, which lasted 26 minutes, before steamrolling the German-Czech combo in the second set.
The Indo-Swiss duo won the Wimbledon and US Open titles, before winning the season ending WTA Finals in 2015. They continued their superb form this year, extending their unbeaten run to 35 with today's semi-final win.
They have also won back-to-back titles at the Brisbane and Sydney International events, before starting their Australian Open campaign.
