Wimbledon: The Indo-Swiss pair of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis thrashed their unseeded opponents Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan and Zheng Saisai of China 6-2, 6-2 in only 68 minutes to enter the second round of the women's doubles competition of the Wimbledon tennis championships.

The top seeded Indo-Swiss pair started the match on a aggressive note by winning two break points and winning 10 out of 15 first serve points to take the set 6-2 at ease here on Wednesday.

After winning the first set, Sania-Hingis went into the second set even more strongly, winning two break points out of three along with three crucial aces.

Diyas-Saisai served a double fault at a crucial phase of the match to make it easier for their opponent to take the set and the match at 6-2.

"We made a good start, we were unlucky not to break in the first game and as the match went on we felt pretty solid," Sania was quoted as saying by wtatennis.com after the match.

"I think it's important to get off to a great start. We were strong and solid and really pleased with how we played," Martina said.

In the second round, Sania and Martina will face the Italian-Japanese pair of Kimiko Date-Krumm and Francesca Schiavone.
