Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza says it was a "dream" for her to reach the women's doubles final of the French Open tennis and feels that she and her Russian partner Elena Vesnina hold the edge going into Friday's title clash against unseeded Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic.

Sania on Wednesday created history by becoming the first Indian woman to enter a Grand Slam doubles final when she and Elena shocked fourth-seeded Americans Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond 6-3, 2-6, 6-4.

"We are ecstatic to be in the final. It is a dream for everyone who picks up a tennis racquet to be in the final of a major. We have been playing very well together," Sania said.

Sania said they are the favourites in Friday's final.
