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.
