Hingis & Mirza Set to Do Damage in 2015

April 3, 2015

BNP Paribas Open - Day 13It’s been quite a start to a partnership for Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis.

The Indian/Swiss pair is in the semifinals of the Miami (Florida) Open right now, going for the Indian Wells-Miami double after triumphing in California their last—and first—time out.

In case that wasn’t clear, Indian Wells marked their first tournament together and you couldn’t ask for a better debut. They’ve kept the train rolling and could be looked at as big favors this time out, even though there are tough teams left in the draw.

It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise they’d find success so quickly together. Hingis is a Hall of Famer, with doubles credentials nearly as impressive as what she did in singles. And since giving up a singles career of her own, Mirza’s proven she’s one of the best in the business in team play.

Also, they complement each other perfectly. Mirza’s always been able to bring the heat with her shots and Hingis can make the ball dance on a string if she wanted to. She sees angles of the court like few before her, has sick hands and can hit all the spots and shots.

They’re fun to watch and can possibly go on to even bigger things this year, like grabbing a Slam or two. Whichever team is on the other side will be hard-pressed to stop them.
