Miami Open: Sania Mirza/Kirsten Flipkens storm into quarterfinals
Sania Mirza and Belgian partner Kirsten Flipkens dominated seventh seeds in the women's doubles of the Miami Open to sail into the quarterfinals.
Indian tennis veteran Sania Mirza alongside partner Kirsten Flipkens kept their winning spree going at the Miami Open as they defeated 7th seeds Demi Schurrs/Desirae Krawczyk with a 6-2 6-4 scoreline to sail into the quarterfinals of the WTA 1000 event.
Through to the last eight, Sania Mirza and her Belgian partner, Flipkens will be facing off against Ekaterina Alexandrova and Yang Zhaoxuan for a place in the semi-finals.
Interestingly, the last time Mirza played at Miami, she had finished as a finalist and this time around, in her final year on the professional tennis tour, the 6-time Grand Slam champion is looking to repeat such a feat, if not better the result.
Other than Mirza in the quarters, Rohan Bopanna along with partner Denis Shapovalov is also into the last eight and will take on sixth seeds Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof next at the Miami Open.
