Tennis star Sania Mirza defeated Bardina of Russia in straight sets to enter the quarter-finals of the $ 25,000 ITF women's tournament. Down by 3-4 in the first set, Sania fought back with vigour to win nine games in a row to storm into the last eight with a 6-4 6-0 verdict. She will now play her doubles partner Shelly Stevens of New Zealand in the quarter-finals. In the doubles pre-quarters held late last night Sania paired with Shelly to script a convincing 6-2 6-2 victory over Daputi Sernande of Brazil and Sivoz Keterzyna of Poland. The Indo-Kiwi pair took control of the game from the start and worked in tandem to outplay Sarnade and Keterzyna without much of an effort. (PTI)
