Sania Mirza & Cara Black Successfully Defend Tokyo Open Title:

Maintaining her rich vein of form in the current season, Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza and her Zimbabwean partner Cara Black today bagged the women's doubles title at the WTA Toray Pacific Open with a 6-2 7-5 victory over Spain's Garbine Muguruza and Carla Suarez Navarro.

With the win, Sania and Cara have successfully defended their Tokyo Open title, which is a USD 1 million event.

For Sania, it will be icing on the cake after her US Open mixed doubles triumph with Brazilian partner Bruno Soares.

She will now spearhead the nation's challenge at the Incheon Asian Games in what will be a depleted tennis contingent in the absence of Leander Paes, Rohan Bopanna and Somdev Devvarman.

Sania, will either pair with left-handed Divij Sharan or big-serving Saketh Myneni in the mixed doubles event, where India have a genuine chance of winning a medal.

In the final on Saturday, Sania-Cara pair took just an hour and 15 minutes to dispose off the Spanish challenge as their opponents were no match for them.

The Indo-Zimbabwean pair had a greater percentage (73%)of points won on first serve while they broke their opponents seven times in the match.
