Sania-Cara win WTA Finals crown

Singapore: The India-Zimbabwe tennis pairing of Sania Mirza and Cara Black clinched 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 women's double final, being played 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 they gave away nothing to their higher seeded 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 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 had also reached the US Open semis with Cara earlier this season. Last month, the duo announced that the season finale would be their last tournament together.
