Sania Mirza-Martina Hingis clinch WTA Finals title, Novratilova congrats them

SaniaIndo-Swiss tennis combine of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis struck gold one more time this year by clinching the women’s doubles title of the WTA Finals in Singapore on Sunday.

The top seeds beat Spanish eighth seeds Garbine Muguruza and Carla Suarez Navarro 6-0, 6-3 in an hour and seven minutes on the hard courts of the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The WTA Finals is an annual event played by the top-8 players/pairs of the year who are divided into two round robin groups — red and white. The top two of each group progress to the semi-finals and the winners to the finals.

The championship is generally considered the fifth most prestigious event on the women’s tour after the four Grand Slam tournaments. It also has the largest prize money and ranking points after the Grand Slams.

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova congratulated Sania Mirza and her Swiss partner Martina Hingis for winning the $7 million WTA Finals women’s doubles title on Sunday, adding that the Indian was “just awesome” on court.

This is the Indo-Swiss pair’s ninth title of the season and 22nd consecutive match win.

“@WTA @mhingis @MirzaSania what a dominating performance from the world #1 team but particularly Sania- just awesome!” Navratilova, who presented the winner’s trophy to the top seeds, tweeted.
