The top-seeded Indo-Swiss duo of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis entered the final of the Wuhan Open tennis tournament in Wuhan on Friday to give themselves a chance to win their seventh title together.

Mirza and Hingis easily overcame the challenge of fourth-seeded Chinese Taipei duo of Hao-Ching Chan and Yung-Jan Chan 6-2, 6-1 in just 53 minutes.

They won 53 of the 88 total points played and converted five of the 10 break points they earned in a lopsided affair to set up a title clash with the unseeded Romanian pair of Irina-Camelia Begu and Monica Niculescu.

Camelia Begu and Niculescu defeated Czech Republic’s Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka 6-4, 1-6, 10-8.

The Indo-Swiss pair earlier defeated the fifth-seeded American pair of Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears 6-2, 6-2 in the quarter-finals.
