New Delhi: Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis on Friday took another step towards conquering the record for most consecutive wins in women’s doubles.
The Sania-Martina duo beat unseeded Russian pair of Daria Kasatkina and Elena Vesnina 6-4, 6-1 in the quarter-finals of the St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy.
On Saturday, the number one seeds will battle it out against Spaniards Anabel Medina Garrigez and Arrantxa Parra Santonja for a spot in the final.
The quarter-final clash lasted for just over an hour, as the Russians were no match for the in-form ‘SanTina’ pair.
The 2016 Australian Open champions beat Jelena Ostapenko (Latvia) and Evgeniya Rodina (Russia) 7-5, 7-5 in their last match.
