Tokyo: India’s Sania Mirza and her Czech partner Barbora Strycova posted a comfortable straight-set win over unseeded Chinese pair of Chen Liang and Zhaoxuan Yang to lift the Toray Pan Pacific Open title in Tokyo on Saturday.
The second seeded Indo-Czezh combination had an easy outing against the Chinese duo as they took just 51 minutes to down their rivals 6-1, 6-1 in the final of the women’s doubles event. This is Mirza and Strycova’s second title in three tournaments since they have paired together.
Last month, Sania and Strycova won the Cincinnati Open title with a 7-5, 6-4 win in the final against the Indian’s previous partner Martina Hingis and Coco Vandeweghe.
