Sania-Chuang cruise into Masters semifinals

sports Updated: May 15, 2009 23:48 IST

Sania Mirza and her partner Chia-Jung Chuang advanced to the semifinals of the $4,500,000 Madrid Open after Russian-Belarussian duo of Victoria Azarenka and Elena Vesnina conceded their quarterfinal match in Madrid.

The unseeded Indo-Taipei duo were leading 2-0 in the first set when their opponents pulled out due to an injury in Azarenka's left knee.

Sania-Chuang will next face third seeds Lisa Raymond of the US and Kveta Peshke of Czech Republic in the last four stage.

Sania had earlier failed to make the cut into the main draw of the singles event after losing 3-6, 3-6 to Aravane Rezai of France in the first round qualifiers.
