Sania Mirza, Martina Hingis win Sydney International to clinch 11th title

Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis lifted their second trophy of the season as they won the WTA Sydney International defeating Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic 1-6, 7-5, 10-5 on 15 January.

This was their 30th win in-a-row but it was not without initial hiccups as the top seeds lost the first set meekly, before eking out the win in one hour and 13 minutes.

The world number one team trailed 1-6, 1-4 at one stage but came out unscathed, levelling the second set 5-5 and then sealed it to stretch it to a Super tie-breaker.

The US open and Wimbledon champions raced to a 8-3 lead in the decider and clinched the issue comfortably to stretch their unbeaten run to an incredible 30 matches.

It was the 11th title together for the Indo-Swiss pair. In 2015, they won nine titles including the year-end WTA Finals. The year 2016 also started on a fabulous note for the duo as they won the Brisbane International title.
