Sania Mirza and Chia-Jung Chuang extended their brilliant run by sailing into the final of the $US 220,000 MPS Group of Championships after a convincing straight set victory over Liga Dekmeijere and Angela Haynes.

The unseeded Indo-Taipei pair carved out a 6-4, 6-3 win over the Latvian-American pair in the semifinal in just one hour and eight minutes.

In the summit clash, Sania and Chuang will fight it out against top seeded pair Kveta Peschke of Czech Republic and Lisa Raymond of United States, who scored a 4-6, 7-5, 15-13 victory over Barbora Zahlavova Strycov and Caroline Wozniacki in their semifinal match.

Sania and Chuang converted both the breakpoints that came their way to race away with the first set apart from saving two on their own serve.

The second set saw a fierce fight as both the teams traded seven breaks but it was Sania-Chuang who managed to get the maximun out of those chances.

They dropped their serve thrice but broke their rivals four times to emerge winners.
