The Indo-American pair of Sania Mirza and Christina McHale have booked their spot in the women’s doubles final of the Tennis in the Land tournament with a straight-set win. It took Mirza and McHale just one hour and twenty-three minutes to beat the Norwegian-American pair of Ulrikke Eikeri and Catherine Harrison 7-6(5), 6-2 in the semifinals of the WTA 250 tournament in Cleveland.
They are yet to drop a set in the tournament as they had defeated Czech Republic’s Hradecka and her Chinese partner Zhang 6-3 6-3 in the quarterfinals. While they beat Georgia’s Oksana Kalashnikova and her Romanian partner Andreea Mitu 6-3 6-2 in the opening round.
Ladies and gentlemen: our first doubles finalists. (All three of them!)
