Sania-Martina clinch WTA Finals crown

Sania-Martina clinch WTA Finals crown

 Singapore: Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis came up with another stupendous performance on Sunday, 1st November 2015 to win the women's doubles title of the prestigious $7 million WTA Finals at the Singapore indoor Stadium here and comprehensively underline their supremacy in the category.

The top seeds took just an hour and seven minutes to rout Spanish eighth seeds Garbine Muguruza and Carla Suarez Navarro 6-0, 6-3 in the summit clash. This is the Indo-Swiss combine's first year-ending title together though the 28-year-old Sania won the crown last year too with Zimbabwe's Cara Black.

Sania and Martina, individually ranked the world's two highest doubles players, didn't lose a set, let alone a match, in the five ties they played in the tournament this week.

"On court, off court, we have a lot of fun. To play in tournaments like this is what we've fought all our lives for and it's incredible to play in front of a packed stadium. We feel very fortunate. We've done some amazing things together and it's the perfect way to end the year for us," said Sania.

This is the pair's ninth title together this season, having also won in Beijing, Wuhan, Guangzhou, US Open (New York), Wimbledon (London), Charleston, Miami and Indian Wells. Their only loss in a final was at Rome.
