Sania Mirza Wins Doubles Title At APIA International

Share

Continuing her prolific form from 2014, Sania Mirza clinched the USD 731,000 AIPA Intenational Women’s doubles title in Sydney with her partner Bethanie Mattek-Sands.  In a grueling match that lasted over an hour, Sania and Sands stunned the first seeded American pair Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears 6-3, 6-3 at the Ken Rosewall Arena in Sydney.

Sania Mirza APIA

Sania Mirza and Bethany Mattek Sands win the APIA International in Sydney by beating Spears and Kops-Jones of USA 6-3, 6-3.

Fierce determination and gritty combination of forehands and backhands led Sania to her 23rd WTA title in Sydney. Playing together after over an year, Mattek and Mirza never looked out of sync throughout the tournament. They beat the second seeded pair Martina Hingis and Flavia Penneta 6-3, 6-3 on their way to the finals. In the final the pair never let their opponents gain any ground on them. The focus did go a little off in the second set as the first seeded American pair took the lead 3-2 and also had a break point at that time on Sania’s service. However, the Indian pulled out some big services to bring herself and Sands back in and closed the match by winning every game of the set therafter.

Sania and Sands – Split And Back

It has been a number of partners for Sania on the court. Her previous partner Su-Wei Hsieh remained unavailable owing to Australian open qualifiers. Well known for her colorful dressing and hard-hitting backhands, Sands had also earlier split with Sania to focus on her singles career. Through the many changing partners, Sania Mirza has remained focused. The same focus today, helped her claim the 23rd WTA title of her career.

Good Form Continues for Sania Mirza

Earlier in 2014, Sania proved to be India’s lone shining spot in Tennis. She rose into the top-5 on the Double’s ranking in 2014. It could not have been a better start for the year than this. It will give Sania much needed confidence going into the Australian Open. If she retains her form and avoids injuries, 2015 could well be the year that Sania Mirza lays her hands on a Women’s doubles Grand Slam.
