Sania Mirza in action at the US Open

Sania Mirza’s dream of capturing her first-ever Grand Slam women’s doubles title came to an end on Thursday in the Big Apple as she and partner Cara Black, of Zimbabwe, were beaten in the semi-finals of the US Open Tennis Championships. Mirza and Black, the third seeds, got off to a slow start losing the first set 2-6 to the unseeded duo Martina Hingis/ Flavia Pennetta. The Indo-Zimbabwean duo started the second set strongly, going up a break early to build a 4-1 lead and even had chances to go up 5-1. But Hingis/ Pennetta steadied their form and swept the last five games in a row to wrap up the win 6-2, 6-4 in 70 minutes and booked their spot in the final. Mirza/ Black failed to convert their break chances – winning only 1 of 7 break point opportunities in the match whereas Hingis/ Pennetta converted on 4 of their 5 chances. Hingis and Pennetta will meet fourth seeds Ekaterina Makarova/ Elena Vesnina for the championship on Sunday. This will be Hingis’ first appearance in a Grand Slam final since 2002. Mirza is still in the mixed doubles event – she has reached the final with partner Bruno Soares and they meet Abigail Spears/ Santiago Gonzalez for the title on Friday. The Indian has won 2 Grand Slam mixed doubles titles in her career with Mahesh Bhupathi, but this will be her first US Open title if she wins .
