The Indo-Swiss pair is looking to lift their 3rd trophy of the season after earlier bagging the WTA Apia International title in Sydney and the Brisbane International.

Their joyous ride on the court has paid dividends as at the moment it looks difficult for any other pair to beat them.
Hingis' experience and class has helped Sania a lot in aspects regarding her game and mental strength.
