London: India`s Sania Mirza and her partner Cara Black of Zimbabwe overcame Martina Hingis and Russian, Vera Zvonareva 6-2, 6-4 to enter second round of Wimbledon women`s doubles round on Wednesday.

Sania and Cara suffered a bit of a hiccup early in the match when the Zimbabwean, on a comeback run, lost serve in the third game of the opening set.

The fourth seeds then combined well, the Indian dominating from the baseline, holding the pairing together as they won five straight games to close out the set.

Playing on an outside court, before a packed, late-evening crowd, Cara and Sania charged to a 5-2 lead in the second set. The Indian`s nerve shook when she was serving for the match in the ninth game.

Cara and Sania then broke the Russian in the tenth game, closing out on their second match point.
