Madrid: Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and her Swiss partner Martina Hingis produced a superior performance as they progressed through to the quarterfinals of the Madrid Masters in the women’s doubles event here on Tuesday.

The top-seeded pair recorded a 6-0, 6-4 win over Taiwan-Croatian pair of Chia-Jung Chuang and Darija Jurak in a second round contest that lasted 53 minutes.

Sania and Hingis, who have won Australian Open title earlier this year, are eyeing their 14th title together.

They have stumbled in their recent tournaments, going down in the Stuttgart Open final, while making a second-round exit at the Miami Masters as well as at the Indian Wells. (ANI)
