The Indo-Swiss pair of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis stormed into the women's doubles quarter-finals at the Wimbledon Championships on Friday by beating the 16th-seeded Spanish team of Anabel Medina Garrigues and Arantxa Parra Santonja 6-4, 6-3 in just 66 minutes.

Mirza and Hingis broke their rivals twice in the opening set and three times in the second set. They lost serve once in the opening set and twice in the second.
