Sania-Cara crowned WTA Finals champions
Sunday October 26, 2014 8:07 PM, IANS

The India-Zimbabwe tennis pair of Sania Mirza and Cara Black drubbed defending champions in the women's doubles summit clash to clinch the prestigious season-ending WTA Finals title here Sunday.


The third seeds, playing their last tournament together, took exactly an hour to thrash second seeds Hsieh Su-wei (Chinese Taipei) and Peng Shuai (China) 6-1, 6-0 in the final on the hard courts of the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Sania and Cara were totally dominant in the first set, winning three of the four set points they earned while giving away nothing to their opponents. Hsieh and Peng only managed to hold their serve in one game.

The third seeds had a perfect second set, notching all their service games and breaking their opponents thrice again, out of five chances.

The final was in total contrast from their last two outings where Sania and Cara had to save match points before making a comeback win.

"That's tennis, it gives you another chance. You've got to fight and this just proves it and today we won the tournament. It's been an amazing ride, an amazing journey," Sania was quoted as saying by

The India-Zimbabwe combine also had a much better percentage of points won on their serve than Hsieh and Peng, whose two double faults at crucial junctures of the match also did not help them.

Sania and Cara first teamed up at the end of 2013, winning their first two events together in Tokyo and Beijing.

However, Cara, who has a two-year-old son, recently announced that she would sit out in the 2015 season to spend more time with her family.

"We started off with a bang and now we're ending with a bang. We've had such an amazing year and had so much fun and built a great friendship which is so special too. It's sad this is our last tournament but it's great to have these moments to share," said Cara.
