Sania Mirza and Elena Vesnina

Sania Mirza and her American partner Elena Vesnina defeated the eight seed Americans Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Meghann Shaughnessy. Sania and Vesnina beat eighth seeds Mattek-Sands and Shaughnessy 6-0, 7-5 in the finals of BNP Paribas Open.

Sania-Vesnina won the first set 6-0 in just 25 minutes and were proving to be too strong for the American pair. They marched into the second set without losing a game in the first set.

The second set saw a comeback from the Americans as they were up 5-1 and were looking to win the second set. But the Indo-Russian pair came back hard and won six consecutive games to win the set 7-5 and the title.

Sania-Vesnina were unseeded in the tournament and lost just 19 games in the tournament even defeating 7th seeded pair of Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova.

Sania is slowly making her mark as a doubles player as this was her 10th WTA doubles title.
