It has been an absolute dream start for Sania and Hingis as they are yet to lose a set since they began their partnership.

Over here we were down, and we were panicking. It was like, ‘Oh my God, we’re not playing well.’ We just weren’t used to that,” Sania said after the match.

Hingis credited the win to tips provided by Sania’s farther Imran Mirza during the match.
