Indian star Sania Mirza and her Swiss doubles partner Martina Hingis are continuing their amazing run.

The duo broke a 22-year-old world record on Thursday winning their 29th women’s doubles match in a row en route to their entry into the women’s doubles final of the WTA Sydney International.

The World’s No. 1-ranked pair came from behind to beat Romanian Raluca Olaru and Kazakhstan’s Yaroslava Shvedova 4-6 6-3 10-8 in a closely-fought semi-final.

Along the way, Mirza and Hingis surpassed the pair of Puerto Rican Gigi Fernandez and Belarus’ Natasha Zvereva, who won 28 matches on the trot during their successful pairing back in 1994.

The Indo-Swiss pair have continued their good show from 2015 when they won 9 titles which included the Wimbledon, US Open and the year-ending WTA finals.

2016 has also started on a fabulous note as they have now made it to the second straight final, having won the Brisbane International last week.

A win in the final will be their 11th WTA title together.
