Guangzhou : The Indo-Swiss tennis pair Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis came out with a clinical performance to enter the women’s doubles final of the $250,000 Guangzhou Open here on Friday.

The top seeds took just an hour and 12 minutes to beat the Israeli-Swedish combination of Julia Glushko and Rebecca Peterson 6-3, 6-4 at the Guangzhou International Tennis Center.

The first set was pretty easy as the reigning US Open champions broke their opponents twice to take the advantage in the match.

The second set was a topsy-turvy one as Julia and Rebecca came back strongly to break the reigning Wimbledon champions twice. But Sania and Martina proved just a tad bit better as they broke the unseeded pair's serve thrice to take home the set and the match.

It wasn't the best of service days for the Indo-Swiss combine as they committed as many as five double faults in the match with three coming in the second set. But they knew when to earn the crucial points to enter the final.

Sania and Martina had earlier defeated German-Romanian pair Anna-Lena Friedsam and Monica Niculescu 6-2, 6-3 in the quarter-finals, played on the centre court of the Guangzhou International Tennis Center.
