    However, the duo was in an attacking mood from the second the game started as the Russians were incapable to match up their form. In an unbeatable spree, ‘Santina’ already has earned eight titles in a row- the five straight titles in 2015, starting from the US Open and before the Australian Open now.

    To record an unbreakable triumph and to fix a spot in the final, on Saturday, Sania-Martina will fight against Spaniards Anabel Medina Garrigez and Arrantxa Parra Santonja.
