Sania-Huber storm into the semifinal of Amelia Island tennis event
Amelia Island, Florida, Apr 7 (UNI) Sania Mirza's dazzling display in the doubles continued and the Indian, pairing with Liezel Huber of South Africa, stormed into the semifinals of the 600,000-dollar Bausch and Lomb tennis championship here on Thursday.
Sania-Huber toyed with the Aussie pair of Nicole Pratt and Bryanne Stewart before knocking them out 6-2, 6-3 in the quarterfinals.
Contrary to their jittery first round win on Wednesday, the Indo-South African duo were ruthless from the start and broke the Aussies six times in the first set en-route to win it 6-2.
After grabbing the lead, Sania-Huber mounted the pressure and broke their opponents twice and, despite squandering their serve once, won the second set and the match.
Sania-Huber will now take on the winner of the match between Russian pair of Dinara Safina and Elena Vesnina and second seed Spanish-American duo of Virginia Ruano Pascual and Meghann Shaughnessy.
