Mirza-Hingis sail into third round of Australian Open

Melbourne: Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and her Swiss partner Martina Hingis continued to display their rampaging form as they extended their winning streak to 32 after progressing through to the third round of the Australian Open in the women’s doubles event on Saturday.

The top-seeded pair, who clinched their 11th straight WTA title at the Sydney International last week, claimed a 6-2, 6-3 win over Ukrainian twin sisters Nadiia Kichenok and Lyudmyla Kichenok in a second round contest that lasted over an hour.

Mirza and Hingis will next face Russian-Italian pair of Svetlana Kuznetsova and Roberta Vinci for a quarterfinal berth. (ANI)
