New Delhi: The unstoppable Indo-Swiss pair of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis on Wednesday equaled the record of winning 28 consecutive matches in women's doubles.

The World No. 1 pair overcame Chen Liang and Shuai Peng 6-2, 6-3 in the quarterfinals of Sydney International Tennis tournament to equal world record set by Gigi Fernandez and Natasha Zvereva in 1994.

Earlier, Mirza and Hingis breezed past Anastasia Rodionova and Arina Rodionova in the opening round of Sydney International to extend their winning streak to 27 matches on Tuesday.

Sania and Martina began 2016 by winning the Brisbane International last week for their sixth title in a row.

Sania has now been ranked world number one for 40 consecutive weeks. No Indian, male or female, has ever enjoyed a longer run at the top of the rankings. Since pairing up with Hingis mid-season last year, the partnership has lost just one of 11 finals and created an aura of near invincibility.
