Wimbledon: Sania-Martina cruise to 3rd round

Wimbledon: The Indo-Swiss pair of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis cruised to the third round of the women's doubles event, handing a 6-0, 6-1 thrashing to Japanese-Italian pair of Kimiko Date-Krumm and Francesca Schiavone at the Wimbldon tennis championships here.

The top-seeded duo took just 45 minutes at Court 12 to advance to the next round on Friday.

The Indo-Swiss duo ruthless from the very beginning and dominated the contest throughout, winning 56 of the 81 points played in the match, double faulting only twice and forcing their opponents into six unforced errors.

"We're playing really well, so I was confident going into the match," Hingis said after the match on Friday.

"I've known Kimiko and Francesca for a long time and we knew it could be difficult, but we started well and kept our level up for the whole match."

They defeated unseeded opponents Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan and Zheng Saisai of China 6-2, 6-2 in the first round on Thursday.
