Fresh from their maiden win in the Paribas Open title at Indian Wells last month, Sania Mirza and her Swiss partner Martina Hingis have entered the women's doubles semifinals of the Miami Open.

The top-seeded Indo-Swiss duo served past the Rodionova sisters, Anastasia and Arina, 6-3, 6-4 in the quarterfinal encounter.

The Sania-Hingis pairing has been much-talked about in the tennis circuit and the top seeds lived up to the hype by claiming their first title win in their maiden appearance together in Indian Wells in March.

Hingis has won 11 Grand Slams in the team discipline (9 in women's and 2 in mixed) while Sania has claimed three Grand Slams (all in mixed).

The duo, which decided to unite in February, will now meet the seventh-seeded Hungary-French combine of Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic in the last-four clash.
